Mustangs rally past Tigers for 1st district win

January 15, 2014

One team entered Tues-day’s boys district game 11-1 for the season while the other came in just 3-10.
But records don’t usually matter when Sweetwater and Snyder play, and this game at Mustang Gym was no different as Sweetwater — the team with just one loss — and Snyder traded leads all night. The fourth quarter began with Snyder holding a two-point lead, 32-30, but Sweetwater led 7-6 after one quarter and 21-17 at halftime.
And Snyder led by four, 40-36, entering the final two minutes of play.
