Lady Bison beat Teague to tie for first in district

A tight game at home against the Teague Lions Friday night ended with a Lady Bison win, tying the team with Teague for first place in district play. While the two teams will share the district title, there are plans in the works for a warm-up game/tie-breaker for seeding. If this third game is anything like the first two between the two teams, it will be another night full of cheers from the bench and the bleachers!

Here are some scenes from Friday night’s game:
