Undefeated Selkirk fell to the Tigers last Friday evening at Quincy High School in a neutral playoff game. Despite the cold temperature and the fog that blanketed the field by the end of the contest, Odessa maintained their unbroken winning streak this season.

The seniors and juniors were able to shut out the Rangers in the first half. Once the Tiger underclassmen came in, Selkirk was able to score three TDs and three conversions in the second half.
