Two teams headed in opposite directions. Tech-nically, thatâs true for Sweet-water and Breckenridge, who bring matching 1-1 records to Mustang Bowl on Friday for Sweetwaterâs home opener â and also the highlight game for this yearâs ninth annual Sammy Baugh Classic.
The Mustangs won 39-31 at Andrews last week after allowing nearly 600 yards in a season-opening 46-30 loss to Eastland. Brecken-ridge, after winning 42-28 at Colorado City to start its season, was routed 48-3 by Vernon at home this past Friday to fall back to .500.
Highland coach Jeff Shel-ton knew his team wouldnât have an easy time this year with its tough non-district schedule, and the teamâs 0-2 start bears it out.
But after losing on the road at both Motley County (59-62) and Sterling City (6-51), the Hornets will get a travel reprieve this Friday as they host Loraine.
And despite the fact that this weekâs opponent is 2-0 and has won both games by the 45-point rule, Highland can look to last yearâs team for motivation.
The Hornets also started 0-2 last year before beating Loraine, 46-44, to begin a five-game roll heading into district play.
This was supposed to be the week that Blackwell fi-nally got a home game after a pair of road games to start the season.
However, the 2-0 Hornets will be making their longest road trip yet instead.Instead of hosting Rule, which called to cancel the teamsâ game Tuesday, Blackwell will be going to Lingleville â which defeated Moran last week to match Blackwellâs 2-0 start to the season.
After a Week Zero loss to De Leon, Roscoe gave new head coach Jake Freeman his first win this past Friday â and in the Plowboysâ home opener â with a 45-26 victory over Irion County.
The victory was âhugeâ for the program, Freeman said this week.
âObviously, any win is big but to get rolling like we did on our home turf was big. It was great for the team to experience and to let them realize that they need to go out every week expecting to win.â
Playing at home for the first time in over three weeks, Sweetwater High Schoolâs volleyball team swept past Lamesa in three games Tuesday, winning 27-25, 25-12, 25-8.
The sub-varsity squads also won in straight sets as the JV beat Lamesa 25-21, 25-10 and the freshmen won by scores of 25-13, 25-16.
The Sweetwater High School junior varsity volleyball team overcame a slow start to win consolation honors this past weekend at a tournament in Lamesa.
Sweetwater dropped a 15-25, 17-25 decision to Seminole in its first match, but rebounded to win its last three matches.
The Lady Mustangs beat Plainview 16-25, 25-18, 25-22; Lubbock Estacado 25-9, 25-9; and Big Spring 25-22, 25-18.
