Last Friday night was good news/bad news for the Wortham Bulldogs.
The good news was the return of running back Stephon Ester, who missed the previous two games with an injury. The bad news, Wortham (4-1) put up a tremendous fight against a strong Granger Lions team before falling to their non-district opponent, 41-34, for their first loss of the season.
Granger led 7-6 in the first quarter and 14-12 by the half.
Wortham cut the Lions lead down to one at the close of the third quarter of play, making it 26-27 heading into the fourth quarter.
