Of note: The Demons were members of District 4-3A a few years back before dropping down a class. … Dexter entered Friday’s game with a 10-0 record at home. … The Demons are ranked second in Class 2A behind Pecos; Portales entered the week in the No. 5 spot in 3A. … The teams have played three common foes — Tucumcari, Ruidoso and Lovington. While the Rams have gone 2-1, all on the road, Dexter has a 5-0 mark, sweeping Tucumcari and Ruidoso. … Dexter’s losses have been to the Hobbs junior varsity, Pecos and Class 2A No. 4 Tularosa. The Demons also own a win over Tularosa. … This is the final regular-season road game for the Rams, who host district foes Lovington on Tuesday and Ruidoso on Friday to wrap up the regular season.
