Mustangs hold on to finish off Pampa

May 13, 2013

LUBBOCK — It would be hard for Sweetwater to complain too much after the Mustangs finished off their best-of-3 area round playoff series against Pampa in just two games on Saturday with an 8-6 win.
But getting the sweep at Lubbock Christian Univer-sity’s Hays Field was certainly challenging — and more than a bit frustrating.
The Mustangs (19-14) not only had to endure two weather delays that totalled more than an hour, but also had to weather a final-inning storm of their own as Pampa (13-14) scored three times and had the go-ahead run at third base.

Clift silences Pampa bats in 1-0 victory

May 13, 2013

WOODROW — As they say, better late than never.
Everything about Game 1 of Sweetwater’s area playoff against Pampa wound up being way behind schedule on Friday, and that isn’t just a reference to the fact that it began almost an hour-and-a-half later than planned — and at a different location — due to inclement weather at Lubbock Christian Univ-ersity that forced both teams to scramble for another field to play on.
