THE BUZZ

Golden Valley has outscored its opponents 40-5 through 17 games to maintain the top spot. The Bulldogs' only blemish? A 1-1 draw against Farmersville in the final of the Jim Inglis Tournament, a game the Aztecs technically won on penalty kicks in order to determine a champion, but the outcome was recorded officially as a tie in the record books.

Farmersville has won the title at all three tournaments it has entered -- the Harold S. Young, Inglis and the Garces Holiday Classic (gold division).
