Missed opportunities in the first half for Sweetwater led to second-half domination in the Mustangsâ Dis-trict 4-3A showdown Friday with Midland Greenwood.
The visiting Rangers, after spotting Sweetwater a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, gradually took control and came away with a 31-13 win that leaves both teams 1-1 in district play.
Greenwood (5-2 overall) was led by quarterback Kam Williams, who accounted for 381 yards â 245 pas-sing and 136 rushing â and four touchdowns. The 6-3, 200-pounder had scoring runs of 10, 9 and 7 yards and also threw a 10-yard TD pass to Logan Day.
ROSCOE â The Roscoe Plowboys evened ther rec-ord at 2-2 in District 7-A, Division II on Friday as they shut out a winless Ranger team, 52-0, before the home crowd at Plowboy Field.
One week after losing to district leader Albany 69-12, Roscoe dished out its own punishment. The Plowboys got two TD runs by Eduar-do Gallegos and one from Vincent Pantoja and Este-ban Benivamondez in rush-ing for 379 yards to Ran-gerâs 28. Gallegos ran for 165 yards and Pantoja 102. Also, Cutter Davila was 15-of-25 passing for 193 yards and had TD throws to Gallegos, Benivamondez and Shelton Toliver.

Tennis team wins 14 of 18 matches against Greenwood
Sweetwater High Schoolâs tennis team did exception-ally well this past Tuesday, winning 14 of 18 matches against Midland Greenwood at the SHS courts.
After suffering a defeat at Big Spring three days earlier that eliminated any hopes of reaching the playoffs, the Sweetwater volleyball team â which by many accounts has had an excellent season â showed off its talent while beating Midland Greenwood in three games at Mustang Gym.
After winning the first two games over the Rangerettes by scores of 25-15 and 25-17, Sweetwater (24-15 overall) staged a terrific rally to get a sweep with a 25-19 win in Game 3 that dropped Greenwood to 1-8 in district.
