The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

Fuzzy is delighted that cool weather has arrived and he can cavort about in glee. I don’t feel that way at all. Many decades ago I left my home country of Canada to seek warmer climates.

Texas overdoes it during the summer, but the winters are pretty good.

Friday night’s game was just too uncomfortable for this imported lady. I didn’t bring my blanket and my poor little feet froze. I was glad to head over to the First Baptist Church, and stuff my face with delicious pulled pork sandwiches from Young’s Barbeque in San Saba.

By Coach Jerod Fikac

The San Saba Armadillos took the field Friday night looking to improve to 8-0 on the season, 3-0 in District play and clinch a playoff spot. The Armadillos got off to a little bit of a slow start after taking a 7-0 falling behind 10-7 in the 1st quarter. This was the 2nd time the team has trailed this season in a game and showed great poise by playing sound defense and explosive offense to earn a 56-13 victory.

The defense played bend but don’t break defense after giving up an early touchdown. The Armadillos ended giving up 221 yards of total offense with 41 coming on the ground and 180 through the air. The Valley Mills quarterback was under heavy pressure all night from the Dillo defense led by Joseph Watson, Clayton Pierce, Risien Shahan, and Daniel Herrera.
