CLYDE â Playing its first game since the Thanks-giving break, Sweetwater led Clyde 7-6 after the first quarter on Tuesday.
But a disastrous second quarter and cold shooting for the rest of the game were too much for the Lady Mustangs to overcome as Clyde â which outscored Sweetwater 21-1 in the second period â rolled to a convincing 45-19 victory.
A number of Nolan County high school teams are participating in three-day basketball tournaments starting Thursday.

Sweetwater White 18
One night after getting a dramatic win over Colorado City on a buzzer-beater by Taylor Jones, the 5-9 senior poured in a season-high 21 points while Sweetwater got off to a good start here Tuesday against Andrews.
However, Jones didnât get a lot of scoring help as no other Mustang player was able to reach double figures, and the visiting Mustangs came away with a 59-41 win. The game was basically decided in the third quarter, when Andrews outscored Sweetwater 19-8 after leading just 27-22 at halftime.
