What can you say? Last Friday night was a rough one as all four county football teams lost on the gridiron to much better teams. All four of those losses were to teams who have traditionally been pretty good in the sport.

There’s always one deer that stands out in the group. And it’s always a doe – the matriarch of the clan. She’s the one who stands guard while the others eat or play.
