For three quarters, Sweet-water looked like anything but an underdog Friday in its District 4-3A showdown with the Monahans Loboes, piling up a 35-14 advantage that could probably have been even larger.
But the Mustangsâ€™ dream of taking a giant step tow-ard their first playoff berth in four years took a drastic turn in the fourth quarter and resulted in a nightmar-ish finish at Mustang Bowl.
Instead of a Sweetwater blowout, Monahans rose up to score 25 unanswered points and leave the Bowl with a stunning 39-35 win, clinching a postseason spot for the Loboes (5-4 overall, 3-1 in 4-3A).
Blackwell got into the win column in District 8, Division II Six-Man football for the first time Friday, but Nolan Countyâ€™s other two area schools were on the short end of onesided losses.
Blackwell 48, Lohn 0
BLACKWELL â€” In its final home game of the year, Blackwell needed just one half to win by the 45-point mercy rule while improving to 1-1 in district and 4-5 for the season.
