Mustangs face a tough battle with Bovina at Homecoming

Bovina and Farwell have at least one thing in common — both can be described as “really good” teams.

And that means the Olton Mustangs have their work cut out for them tonight as they look for a Homecoming win over Bovina.

“We ran into a really good team Friday,” Coach Ross Lassiter said of Olton’s 42-21 loss at Farwell. Just a few minutes later he said, “Bovina is a really good team. They are as good as any team we have seen on film this year.”

But this time he said much more — “We have to get the kids focused and ready to play Friday night.”

Why?

There are two reasons. First, this is a Homecoming game and that can be a distraction. Second, Bovina has some new and old weapons that Olton needs to neutralize to get the win.
