HERMLEIGH â€” After making the six-man playoffs with a thrilling last-second win a week earlier, Blackwell got off to a promising start in its Division II bi-district meeting with Loraine on Friday.
The Hornets, however, couldnâ€™t finish what they started on this night after getting inside Loraineâ€™s 20 on their first two possessions. Blackwell did tie Loraine, 8-8, in the second quarter, but it was pretty much all downhill from there as Loraine won 49-22 to advance into the next round of the playoffs and end Blackwellâ€™s season.
Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s basketball teams both lost on Friday. The SHS boys fell at Coleman, 48-44, in their season opener and the girls (3-1) lost to Abilene High, 48-42, at the SHS gym.
The boys were paced by Rhett Torresâ€™ 17 points while Dylan Bennett had 12 and Deandre Gatson and Isaiah McGee six. The girls were paced by Suede Shirleyâ€™s 14 points, including two 3-pointers, while Kendra Crosson had nine and Shelby Cason and Jan-ell Walker six apiece for the Lady Mustangs.
Luis Gaxiola is the last Football Player of the Week for Sweetwater. Gaxiola is a senior who started at offensive tackle and defensive end.
Against Wylie, he scored Sweetwaterâ€™s first touchdown off a blocked kick. He also had eight tackles (four solos, four assists, one tackle for a loss), and also recovered a fumble and had a sack.
