After onesided district-opening defeats â€” by nearly identical scores â€” last week, Sweetwater and Greenwood will have a sense of urgency when they meet on Friday.
Yes, itâ€™s true: the Univer-sity Interscholastic League now allows four of the six teams from District 4-3A into the playoffs. But the Sweetwater-Greenwood loser will drop to 0-2, and be squarely on the outside looking in with just three games left in the season.
Sweetwater has now lost three straight after a 2-1 start, and last weekâ€™s 41-14 loss at Snyder was its first blowout defeat of the year.
Roscoe will go to Ranger this Friday with high hopes of getting on a late-season push to make the playoffs.
After back-to-back losses to Cross Plains and Albany the past two weeks, the Plowboys (2-4 overall and 1-2 in District 7-1A, Div. II) are starting a two-week per-iod in which they appear to have an excellent chance of picking up a pair of wins.
Sweetwaterâ€™s volleyball team, coming off a crucial road win at Snyder this past Friday, found itself in a big hole against Mona-hans almost from the start here Tuesday and fell to the Lady Loboes â€” the No. 10-ranked team in the state â€” in three games.
Monahans won 25-8, 25-9, 25-13 in Sweetwa-terâ€™s most lopsided defeat in district play as the Lady Mustangs dropped to 2-4 in district play following their win over Snyder.
