MIDLAND â€” Midland Christian, like Sweetwater, plays 11-man football. However, running back Christian Whigham was a one-man wrecking crew for the host team Friday in a 48-21 win over Sweetwater.
Whigham finished with 214 yards on 19 carries and scored a school-record seven touchdowns, five of them in the first half, to help Midland Christian take a 48-0 lead before Sweet-water (3-3) came up with three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to make the final score a bit closer.
BROWNWOOD â€” The Sweetwater volleyball team came close to getting its first district win Friday, but instead lost to Brownwood in four games by scores of 24-26, 25-23, 22-25 and 15-25. Sweetwater fell to 0-2 in district and 16-16 overall, while Brownwood is 2-1 and 10-13 and just one-half game out of the district lead. More infor-mation on Fridayâ€™s match will appear in a later story.
The two six-man football teams from Nolan County both faced unbeaten teams Friday in non-district play.
Highland hosted Gordon and the Hornets (2-4) fell by a score of 62-56, while Blackwell lost to Trent 65-16 to stay winless (0-6). Trent and Gordon are both 6-0.
Unfortunately, the Sweet-water Reporter was unable to get additional information by Sundayâ€™s deadline on both six-man games.
The Reporter apologizes for the inconvenience to our readers in Blackwell and Highland. We will attempt to have complete game stories as soon as possible.
