Sweetwaterâ€™s defense re-corded its second shutout of the season here Friday, as the Mustangs improved to 3-1 overall with a 19-0 win over Early before a large homecoming crowd.
The game was typical for Sweetwater through its first four contests of 2011.
The Mustang defense, as usual, was sound if a bit less spectacular than usual as it held Early (0-4) to 165 yards. The offense, as usual, was inconsistent in producing three scores and 297 yards â€” the latter equalling Sweetwaterâ€™s season high set one week earlier.
Blackwell, Highland and Roscoe all lost in area football action Friday.
MERKEL â€” Roscoe (0-4) faced another tough non-district opponent on the road as Merkel (2-1) jumped out to a 26-0 lead after one quarter. The Badgers then added two more scores, while Roscoe had just 131 yards â€” all rushing. Eduardo Gallegos ran for 40 yards to pace the Plowboys, while Eric Padilla had 36, Chris Deleon 32 and Dillon Freeman 22. Roscoe was shut out for the first time this season.
