THE 'LOPES WILL BE BETTER THAN LAST YEAR'S TEAM, BUT WILL IT BE ENOUGH TO OVERTAKE CANADIAN?

Well, in some sort of ways, it feels as if Abernathy just can't catch a break. Last year's team was one of the best I've seen since their 2017 squad who lost to Crawford in the 2A State Semifinals. If Abernathy could've found some points, they could've gave the Wildcats a little more of a challenge in their 19-7 loss in the 3A DII Regional Semifinals in 2018.
