FLOYDADA – The basketball games weren’t the only competition between Lockney and Floydada Friday night at Whirlwind Gym. Floyd County 4-H’s Mia Snowden’s challenge between the two communities for TackleHunger.com‘s Souper Bowl of Caring netted more than $250 in cash and canned items for people in need.

According to the Floyd County Texas AgriLife Extension Office Floydada’s side collected $138 in cash and cans while Lockney brought in $124.

The project awards a ‘touchdown’ for every 50 cans or $50 donated, and the winning side was also given an extra touchdown for donating the most – meaning at the end of Friday night the score was 18-12 in favor of Floydada. But the game isn’t over yet. The Extension Office says collections will continue through Super Bowl Sunday, February 13.

charity will receive 75% of the donations and the losing team’s charity will receive 25% of the donations.
