Though it is early in the 16-game District 28-5A softball race, the Uvalde Lobos will play a big game Tuesday when they host the Eagle Pass Winn Lady Mavericks.
The varsity game is set to begin at 7 p.m. and will be preceded by a 5 p.m. junior varsity contest.
Both the Lobos and the Lady Mavericks advanced to the post-season playoff last season and were pre-season picks to challenge for post-season playoff honors this season.
But Medina Valley, Somerset, and Southwest are off to a quick start in district play, while Winn has lost one district game and the Lobos have lost two games.
The winner of the game Tuesday will stay close to the district leaders, while the loser will drop an additional game back in the district teams standings.
Coach J.J. Iracheta’s Lady Mavericks, 1-1 in district play and 10-3 for the season, were to play the Southside Lady Cardinals in district softball Friday night at Eagle Pass.
Results from the Winn-Southside game were not available.
