Of Sweetwater’s 326 total yards, 291 came by the run as the Mustangs completed just five passes.
Meanwhile, the defense gave up a lot of yards (384) but was scored on by East-land’s offense just once — with 3:34 left in the fourth quarter — even though the Mavericks took a whopping 81 snaps in the contest.
