It's always nice to visit Sam Bass Stadium

I haven't been to Sam Bass Stadium in Stratford in a couple of years, and I looked forward to the visit on Friday to cover the District 1-1A clash between the Elks and Sunray. The last time I was there was in 2006 when Dalhart defeated the Elks to keep their unbeaten streak alive. The stadium was full and I would think it will be again for this important district matchup between two very good teams. Stratford holds a 9-5 edge in the series since 1990 and has won four of the six meetings since 2000. Sunray did win in 2003 and 2004 before Stratford won in 2005. They hadn't played the last two years because Stratford was in Class 2A, before dropping back to 1A beginning this season.
