It was last Friday night when the Panther offense sputtered through the first three quarters against Wolfforth Frenship before finally scoring with less than five minutes to play in the game.

With district beginning against Odessa this week, head coach Gary Gaines said his team needs to limit turnovers if they want to get a win.
"We've gotta coach better, and we've gotta play better," Gaines said. "Offensively we had two fumbles and two interceptions, and you're not going to get very far offensively with that."
