Local sports fans who are needing their high school football fix and don't want to travel can watch the Mules play the Cardinals tonight.
Football teams from Muleshoe and Melissa will be in Sweetwater today for a Class 2A, Division I state semifinal playoff starting at 7 p.m. at Mustang Bowl.
Tickets for the playoff game will be sold for $7 each at the gate.
Muleshoe brings a 12-1 record into the contest after its 43-36 quarterfinal win over Eastland this past week, while Melissa is 11-1 after its 35-14 quarterfinal win over Daingerfield. The winner of today's game plays either Tatum or Hempstead in the 2A, Division I state championship game next week.
