Bengals vs the Cowboys. No, it’s not Monday Night Football but rather the Tucumcari Junior football league championship, played on Thursday night.
The Bengals took the championship with a 16-0 win over the Cowboys.
The Bengals, coached by James Lott, faced off against the Cowboys, coached by Max Jimenez, at the Rattler Stadium. The Bengals’ touchdowns came in the second half, one late in the third and one early in the fourth – both by rushes.
Lott said, “We finished 6-0 with the league championship title.”
The league was open to fifth through seventh graders and about 80 kids from Logan, San Jon and Tucumcari participated in the league’s four teams.
The Bengals will be having an award ceremony with a trophy presentation at 4:30 p.m. next Saturday, Lott said.
