Shorthorns force playoff match to determine 2,3

MARFA - The Marfa Shorthorns capitalized on Fort Davis mistakes and played some of their best volleyball of the season Tuesday night to knock off Fort Davis and force a playoff match Tuesday in Fort Davis to decide which team goes into the playoffs in second place and which team goes in third. "Not to take anything away from Marfa - they played great - but we just didn't have the kind of match we've been playing," said Fort Davis Coach Gary Lamar. "We just flat didn't do a very good job in a clutch situation." The Indians won the opener 25-20, but fell in games two and three by scores of 26-24 and 25-20.

Indians just a win away from second place; not too early to start thinking playoffs

FORT DAVIS - Saturday's non-district match with Sierra Blanca was cancelled this week with the Vaqueros having a scheduling conflict. That means the Fort Davis volleyball Indians will be going into a second week without a match, but with plenty of time in practice to get ready for the final district push. Marfa stands in the way of a solid second place finish for the young Indians, who are in second behind Balmorhea, the undefeated district champ. Marfa and Balmorhea play this week with Fort Davis and Marfa going next Tuesday in Marfa.

Key players still out as Indians fall again and play Ira Saturday

MIDLAND - With key players still on the sidelines with injuries, the Fort Davis Indians took it on the chin Friday from Midland Trinity 52-6 and fell to 0-6 on the year. The lone score came on a Hunter Hurley run - Hurley had 40 yards on seven carries, basically about all the Indians could muster on offense - the blocking again just not acceptable.

Bears were just bad news for Indians all week long

BALMORHEA - This bunch of bad news Bears may be tough to get back in the box.

To add insult to injury, the Indians lost their leading defender, senior Quentin Mathes to a mild concussion and are still without the services of quarterback Lalito Hernandez, who is still nursing a bum ankle.
