ABILENE â€” Sweetwater picked a good time â€” Fri-dayâ€™s District 5-3A opener at Wylie â€” to play its best game of the 2011 season.
Unfortunately, the Mus-tangs still werenâ€™t too happy at the end. Thatâ€™s because the Bulldogs were still able to pull out a 20-15 victory despite running 31 fewer plays than Sweetwater.
And that wasnâ€™t the only statistic the Mustangs led in. Coach Craig Slaughterâ€™s club racked up 11 more first downs (21-10) and 47 more yards (322-275) in the con-test than Wylie and had just one turnover, the same as the Bulldogs.
Roscoe is still in search of its first win of the year after losing its District 7-1A opener to Hamlin, 40-8, on Friday, while Highland (2-4) was a 46-0 loser to six-man power Sterling City in its final non-district game.

Kelsi Crosson had four kills, Alicia Finn three, Kathleen Campbell two and Shelby Cason, Larissa Locklar and Suede Shirley one. Finn and Shirley each had eight assists. Kinsey Browning had six digs and Allie Zavaleta four, while Kendra Crosson also had one block and one dig.
Sweetwater went 3-for-4 in middle school football games Tuesday with Wylie, with both seventh grade teams winning.

After trailing 8-6 at half-time, Sweetwater Red ral-lied for the victory. Jacoby Hunt scored all three Colt touchdowns on runs of 2, 61 and 3 yards and also had a 53-yard run to Wylieâ€™s 10.

7th grade White 14,
Here are results from the Sweetwater Middle School volleyball teams at the Lub-bock Cooper tournament:
