Bulldogs, Cavemen played an excellent game Friday

Friday night’s football game sure felt like one of the best returns back to normal we’ve seen in a long time. A goal line stand in the final seconds of play put the Carlsbad Cavemen over the Artesia Bulldogs, 35-34, in a game that saw multiple lead changes and incredible effort from both sides.

There were so many unusual elements associated with the game – COVID-19 restrictions, the fact that the game was played in Hobbs so some fans could watch, the fact that the game took place in March – but in the end, it was all about two hardworking football teams doing their absolute best. The game won’t just go down in history for when it was held or where it was held, but because it was an excellent football game.
