The Junior League (ages 13-14) all-stars were the only Sweetwater team to come away with a win in District 5 Little League action on Tuesday in Abilene.
Sweetwater routed Clyde, 26-1, and will now take on Snyder at 5:45 p.m. Thurs-day at Wylie. Thursdayâ€™s winner advances to the semifinals on Saturday.
Sweetwaterâ€™s 9-10 year-old all-stars lost, 18-17, to Abilene Cedar Creek in their District 5 opener. The loss means Sweetwater must defeat Breckenridge at 6 p.m. today at Cedar Creek in order to stay alive through the losers bracket of the tournament.
Sweetwaterâ€™s 10-11 year-old all-stars have been totally dominant through the first two games of the District 5 Little League tournament they are hosting at the Major League field.
After Mondayâ€™s 22-0 win over Snyder in its opener, Sweetwater again showed little mercy Tuesday as it shut out Merkel, 12-0, to reach Fridayâ€™s semifinals.
Sweetwater will be taking on Wylie, which is also 2-0 in the tournament after an equally convincing 20-1 win over Abilene Southern in Tuesdayâ€™s other game.
