September 17, 2011

Sweetwater’s defense re-corded its second shutout of the season here Friday, as the Mustangs improved to 3-1 overall with a 19-0 win over Early before a large homecoming crowd.
The game was typical for Sweetwater through its first four contests of 2011.
The Mustang defense, as usual, was sound if a bit less spectacular than usual as it held Early (0-4) to 165 yards. The offense, as usual, was inconsistent in producing three scores and 297 yards — the latter equalling Sweetwater’s season high set one week earlier.
