If the Harvesters defeat Amarillo, however, and score another triumph.in their last game against Borger, they will be awarded the right to represent the district in th$ playoffs under a 1-AA ruling, A victory for Amarillo will clinch the crown for the Snndtes. Lubbock's battered Westerners will attempt to climb out of the, conference cellar in another Saturday 1-AA tilt against Plainview on the Bulldogs' home gridiron. The Lubbock eleven now occupies the district basement with three defeat. 1 ;, while every other district foe has scored at ica»t one win.
