Boys Ranch, Vega in playoff hunt in late October

Here it is late October and Boys Ranch and Vega are in the thick of the playoff picture in District 3-1A. I haven't covered a football game at Boys Ranch in more than a dozen years, yet I found myself looking forward to this one. For one of the few times this season I am headed to a game with absolutely no idea which team might win. I know Boys Ranch has won four straight games and is 2-0 in district play. Vega started slowly this season under first-year head coach Phillip Wiggins, but has won three of its last four after starting the season 0-3. Boys Ranch has never made the playoffs while Vega hasn't been to the playoffs since 1989. I'm just hoping for a close, down-to-the-wire game.
