ROBY â€” The Sweetwater girls basketball team is star-ting out 2011 the way it finished in 2010.
And the Lady Mustangsâ€™ 42-30 win on Tuesday at Roby came against a peren-nial state power.
Sweetwater (15-9) trailed only once â€” at 7-6 â€” against the Lady Lions, who came into the contest ranked No. 6 in Class 1A, Division II.
Tuesdayâ€™s victory was the ninth in the last 10 games for Sweetwater, which goes to Mineral Wells Friday before tipping off District 5-3A play next week at home against Snyder.
ROBY â€” Since a 4-1 start, little has gone right for the Sweetwater boys basketball team in the past month.
But that changed, at least for one night, on Tuesday when the Mustangs visited Roby and won 43-40.
Sweetwaterâ€™s 6-8 senior post, Paxton Kelley, scored 19 points as the Mustangs (6-12) won for only the second time in 13 games.
Roby led 7-6 after one quarter, but Kelley hit three straight baskets to fuel an 8-0 run at the start of the second period and Sweetwa-ter led 19-16 at halftime.
