SW ends non-district vs. Lions

September 26, 2013

They are two of the winningest programs in the history of Texas. One has seven state championships to its credit, while the other has perhaps the most unique setting for a high school football game in the state.
And even if the 2013 ver-sions don’t exactly resemble some of their powerhouse teams of the past, Sweet-water (2-2) and Brownwood (1-3) should put on an enter-taining show this Friday at Mustang Bowl.
Both are scoring a lot of points and, perhaps just as significantly, they are giving up a lot. Sweetwater has allowed 152 points so far, while Brownwood has been shredded for 207.

Plowboys to start district against Baird

September 26, 2013

After taking a week off, Roscoe starts district play by hosting Baird on Friday and hopes to get its up-and-down season back on track.
The Plowboys (1-2) have shown an explosive offense on occasion, but lost 19-0 two weeks ago to Miles in their most recent outing.
Baird is off to an 0-3 start this season, but two of its losses have been by a total of eight points.
Roscoe coach Jake Free-man said last week’s open date “came at the perfect time” for the Plowboys, in part because it allowed his team to heal injuries to some key players in getting ready for Baird.

Blackwell faces tough road game; Highland seeks 2nd straight W

September 26, 2013

With their annual show-down still two weeks away, Nolan County’s two six-man schools are both coming off wins as they take to the road this Friday.
It’s become a familiar feeling for Blackwell, which is off to a 4-0 start after last week’s 45-0 rout of Trent. But the Hornets, who are ranked No. 11 in the state in Division II Six-Man, could face their big-gest challenge yet. Blanket is 3-1 and ranked No. 15, and may have a little extra motivation after suffering a 52-6 loss to May, which is currently ranked No. 7 in Six-Man Division I.
