Texhomaâs 27-26 come-from-behind win in Fairview not only gave Thomas-Fay-Custer sole possession of first place in the District A-1 standings, it created a 3-way race for third between Texhoma, Hooker and Mooreland.
And if Hooker can knock off Fairview at home this week, and Texhoma can take care of Mooreland on the road, the Red Devils, Bulldogs and Fairview would be tied for second heading into the final week of the season Nov. 7th.
