At 2 p.m., Hamlin (8-3) and Eldorado (7-3) meet in a Class 1A, Division II con-test, with Idalou (8-2) and Bangs (8-3) set to meet at 7 p.m. in a Class 2A, Division II game at the Bowl. The Hamlin-Eldorado winner will advance to play either No. 1-ranked Munday or Wink in the next round, while the Idalou-Bangs win-ner will advance to the next round to face either East-land or Muleshoe.
The Sweetwater boys got into their first victory of the year by defeating Ballinger, 51-45, here Monday in the second half of a boys-girls doubleheader that involved three schools. The Mustangs are now 1-1 heading into the Thanksgiving break.
The Sweetwater girls did not fare as well, losing to Early 54-35 as they fell to 3-2 overall. Both teams will return to action Nov. 27 as the girls host Abernathy and the boys travel to Wall.
