An Abernathy man is the second local Powerball winner in two months.  Felipe Lopez Jr. bought the winning ticket, worth $50,000, on October 29th and claimed his prize last week at the Texas Lottery claim center in Lubbock. 

With four out of five numbers, plus the red Powerball, Lopez thought he had won $500. 

"We'd have been more than happy with a $500 prize, but $50,000 is really something" Lopez said in written statement. "I don't always remember to buy lottery tickets, but this just goes to show that you never know."

Lopez bought the winning ticket at the Abernathy location of Allsup's convenience store.

Back in mid-October, Graden Bass of Spur bought a winning Powerball ticket worth $200,000.  Bass had all the main numbers but not the Powerball number.
