SW teams need W today

October 18, 2013

Sweetwater sends its volleyball and football teams to Midland Greenwood today in what will be crucial con-tests for both squads.
In both cases, a win gives Sweetwater a major boost toward the postseason while a loss would represent a big setback, especially for the Mustang football team that is looking for its first win in district play.

SW, Greenwood need a win

October 17, 2013

After onesided district-opening defeats — by nearly identical scores — last week, Sweetwater and Greenwood will have a sense of urgency when they meet on Friday.
Yes, it’s true: the Univer-sity Interscholastic League now allows four of the six teams from District 4-3A into the playoffs. But the Sweetwater-Greenwood loser will drop to 0-2, and be squarely on the outside looking in with just three games left in the season.
Sweetwater has now lost three straight after a 2-1 start, and last week’s 41-14 loss at Snyder was its first blowout defeat of the year.

Roscoe hoping for rebound at Ranger

October 17, 2013

Roscoe will go to Ranger this Friday with high hopes of getting on a late-season push to make the playoffs.
After back-to-back losses to Cross Plains and Albany the past two weeks, the Plowboys (2-4 overall and 1-2 in District 7-1A, Div. II) are starting a two-week per-iod in which they appear to have an excellent chance of picking up a pair of wins.

Lady Loboes get a sweep over S’water

October 17, 2013

Sweetwater’s volleyball team, coming off a crucial road win at Snyder this past Friday, found itself in a big hole against Mona-hans almost from the start here Tuesday and fell to the Lady Loboes — the No. 10-ranked team in the state — in three games.
Monahans won 25-8, 25-9, 25-13 in Sweetwa-ter’s most lopsided defeat in district play as the Lady Mustangs dropped to 2-4 in district play following their win over Snyder.
