It is time for serious football for the Ryan Cowboys.
Tomorrow night the Cowgirls will host Empire for a
District B-4 contest at Bob Givens Sports Complex.
Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
The Cowboys will take a 3-2 record into the game with the Bulldogs, while Empire is 2-3 on the year.
Ryan enjoyed a bye week last week and no doubt first-year head coach Tony Tomberlin helped identify the areas the Cowboys have struggled this year during the extra practice sessions.
The break also gave the Cowboys opportunity to head from nagging mid-season injuries.
This will be the first meeting between Ryan and Empire on the gridiron since 1977 when Ryan last played 11-man football.
Empire dropped to eight-man football last season and made a playoff appearance in its first year.
The Bulldogs were the pre-season favorite in most polls to win the district title.
