Friday was a bad day for the Dalhart sports teams and the Lady Wolves were no exception.  After beating Borger in the first two meetings between the two teams, the Lady Wolves struggled to keep up with the hustle and strong attacks from the Lady Dogs, while the Dalhart blocking game always seemed to be just a touch off.

“Can my neighbors keep three feet of my property just because the fence has been in place for more than 10 years?”

Question:  Before my neighbor or I bought our houses, previous owners put up a fence between the two properties.  We have both lived at our properties for more than 10 years.  I found out that the neighbor’s fence is actually about three feet onto my property line but was told that I can’t make them move their fence any longer because it has been in place for more than ten years.  Can my neighbors keep three feet of my property just because the fence has been in place for more than 10 years?

The Borger Bulldogs used a lot of little things to hand the Golden Wolves their first defeat of the year.  But in the end, the two platoon system of the larger school took it’s toll on the Wolves, and the fresh players started to wear down the mighty Wolves giving Borger the ability to control time of possession and keep the Wolves offense off of the field.  In the battle for first place in the district race both teams fought hard, but the Bulldogs had fewer mistakes and went home with a 12 –3 victory over the Golden Wolves

We have been teaching a class in Sunday school called Manna.  It is all about living on God’s daily provision and being content with each day.  The discussion has been strong as different class members share the experiences of life along their journey.  Each week we have all gone home carrying a new perspective on what it means to really trust God for the daily provisions of our life. This class is really growing us, and for some, stretching has occurred.

The last time the Golden Wolves were 7-0, in Coach Young’s first year in Dalhart, the Rangers put an end to the Wolves winning streak and Dalhart left Perryton 7-1.  This time the Wolves scored 41 unanswered points before the Rangers even knew what hit them in a game that could have been much higher scoring as the Wolves showed a lot of nerves in the first half of the big game and dropped at least two wide open touchdown passes from Noah Jesko, and took themselves out of scoring position with several untimely mistakes.  However, the night belonged to the Dalhart defense who held Perryton’s passing game to only four completions with two interceptions, while the offensive line opened gaping holes in the Perryton defense at will in the second half, allowing the Wolves to run for 265 yards, and if not for penalties, that could have easily been over 300 yards.  The Wolves are now tied for first place in the district setting up a showdown with 1-0 Borger, who defeated Pampa 28-7, next week in Borger.
