Mustangs score big again in last tuneup

The Sweetwater offense continued to fly high in Thursday’s final scrimmage against Clyde at Mustang Bowl as it matched the number of touchdowns (6) it had in its first scrimmage at San Angelo Lake View a week earlier.
This time the format was a bit different, but Sweet-water’s resounding 6-2 edge in touchdowns was similar to its previous week’s 6-3 “win” over the Chiefs.
