SNYDER â In sports, as in life, you have to take advantage of opportunities for success whenever they come your way.
In Fridayâs District 4-3A opener, Sweetwater reached Snyderâs red zone on its first two possessions of the game â and came away with nothing to show for it in a scoreless first quarter.
The Mustangs also forced Snyder to punt on its first series, but the Tigers took the lead with a 16-play, 93-yard scoring drive that began at the end of the first period and resulted in a 1-yard touchdown run by DâVincent Allison.
Max Gomez threw for four touchdowns and ran for another, and the Sweetwater JV foot-ball team improved to 4-1 overall by defeating Snyderâs JV, 36-14, in the teamsâ district opener here Thursday.
BLACKWELL â The hottest six-man football team in Nolan County has changed its address. Highland now has that distinction after defeating Blackwell, 76-60, on Friday in Blackwell for its fourth consecutive win.
Highland running back Michael Hyde ran for 331 yards and six touchdowns as his team improved to 4-3 this season. Blackwell, after starting out 6-0, suffered its first defeat despite 155 yards rushing and four TDs by Jayden Jones and 177 yards passing and three TDs by Matthew Lowry.
SNYDER â It wasnât easy. It never is at Snyder.
But after allowing the host team to tie the match with a decisive Game 2 win, Sweetwater rallied to win Fridayâs District 4-3A volleyball match in four games by scores of 25-18, 14-25, 25-22, 25-22.
With the victory, Sweet-water (2-3, 11-18) broke out of a fourth-place district tie with the Lady Tigers, who fell to 1-4, 10-16.
âI didnât think we played all that great, but itâs always hard over there,â Sweetwa-ter coach Liz Miller said. âIt was a big game for both teams. Iâm glad we were able to come out on top.â
