As week nine gets under way, the playoff picture is starting to take shape for some teams. On 101.9 KBUS, the Paris Wildcats host Sanger. Paris, coming off their first district loss to Argyle last week sits in second place in the district with two more games to go. Sanger, meanwhile, is still looking for their first win of the season. That game will get started with the pregame at 6:30.

The North Lamar Panthers have the night off before they host the Paris Wildcats in week 10.

The Chisum Mustangs will take their second place record across Lamar County as they face the Prairiland Patriots. The Mustangs are coming off a huge win against Bells last week while the Patriots are still looking for their first district win.

In other action, Honey Grove hosts Como Pickton, Rivercrest will be at home against Boles. And Detroit will be at Clarksville.

And, at 8:00 pm New Boston vs. Paris Chism. Tuesday it is Prairiland vs. Atlanta at 6:00 pm followed by Commerce vs. Queen City at 8:00 pm.

The NFL on Thursday took the highly unusual step of firing down judge Hugo Cruz for performance reasons. It is the first time the NFL has fired an official in-season during the Super Bowl era because of performance. Cruz, who last worked in Week 6 and is no longer an NFL employee, joined the NFL in 2015. He was responsible for one high-profile mistake this season when he missed an obvious false start by Los Angeles Chargers left tackle Russell Okung on a scoring play in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns. He did not work in Week 7. Otherwise, the details of the league’s decision — including other mistakes Cruz is presumed to have made — are unknown.
