Cubs keep pace in district race
Groesbeck takes over lead; Clifton, Troy, West tied for second in District 19-3A
By Brett Voss
Despite opening the second round of District 19- 3A competition with a heartbreaking 2-1 walkoff loss to Troy in eight innings last Tuesday, the Clifton Cubs rebounded for an overwhelming 17-1 thrashing of Bruceville-Eddy last Friday to keep pace in the tight four-team race for the league pennant.
After visiting Class 4A Lorena Tuesday after press time for a non-district game, the Cubs (6-2 in district, 14-4 overall) returns home to host defending state champion West (5-2, 11-7-2) in a key district showdown.
