Sweetwaterâ€™s Nick Nemir intercepts a Monahans pass while Kaleb Hoover (10) watches in Fridayâ€™s game.
It took almost an entire half for the stateâ€™s No. 9-ranked team in Class 3A to make a first down here Friday against an inspired Sweetwater defense.
And the Mustangs were still tied with Monahans 7-7 through three quarters of a classic defensive battle in Game 2 of the seventh an-nual Sammy Baugh Classic.
But the Loboesâ€™ defense ultimately prevailed, holding Sweetwater to just three yards and no first downs in the second half and scoring 10 points in the final period for a hard-earned 17-7 win.
Highland and Blackwellâ€™s six-man football teams lost non-district games Friday to fall to 0-2 this season.
