“I am so proud of the effort we showed today,” Head Coach Rich Hammons said. “We had some butterflies early, but settled down and started to play our game.  Once that happened, our players found a groove and were able to stay on track for a big win here today.  I cannot say enough about each one of the players and the focus they showed here today.  They had a goal in mind and they achieved that goal together.”

Overall, Brownfield won the Bi-District championship, beating the Perryton Rangers by a final score of 16-3.  

They were set to compete in the Area round on Friday, in Fort Stockton against San Elizario.
