In a matchup of two volleyball teams desperate for a win, Sweetwater emerged with a three-game sweep over Midland Greenwood on Friday at Mustang Gym.
But it was hardly a rout, as the Lady Mustangs need-ed every point to produce a 25-23, 25-23, 25-23 victory and improve to 1-2 in Dis-trict 4-3A, while Greenwood fell to 0-3.
Sweetwater had the upper hand most of the night, but had trouble finishing off the Rangerettes.
BLACKWELL â It took Blackwell just 14 plays and two quarters to score 78 points here Friday.
The defense was just as good, pitching a shutout.The result was a 78-0 win as the Hornets improved their season record to 6-0 on Blackwellâs homecoming.
The game was over at halftime due to the 45-point mercy rule used in six-man. Blackwell scored 34 points in the first period and 44 in the second.
Even with just 14 plays on offense, a lot of different players got involved.
CROSS PLAINS â It was looking real good for Roscoe at halftime on Friday.
The visiting Plowboys had just finished off a 24-point second quarter, and they led Cross Plains 31-14.
Roscoeâs quarterback, Cutter Davila, had already thrown three touchdown passes, two of them to Shelton Toliver and the other to Max Nemir.
But just one quarter later, Roscoe found itself trailing 43-31 as Cross Plains scored 29 straight points en route to dominating the second half in a 56-31 victory.
Roscoeâs junior varsity shut out Cross Plains, 38-0, on Thursday.
If that sounds familiar, Roscoe won by the same score over Cross Plains a week earlier in Cross Plains before playing Thursday on Roscoeâs field.
Roscoeâs two junior high teams are 3-0 after beating Cross Plains on Thursday.
The eighth grade Plow-boys won 18-6.
Francisco Garcia had a hand in all three scores for Roscoe, as he had TD runs of 5 and 15 yards as well as a 22-yard scoring pass to Clemente Aguayo.
Roscoeâs seventh grade team got three TD runs by Jose Ortega and one from Tagen Adkins as they won their game 26-0.
Ortega scored on runs of 26, 54 and 12 yards, while Adkins had a 12-yard TD run for the Plowboys and Ortega had a pair of two-point conversions as well.

Roscoeâs football team currently sits atop the District 7-1A, Division II standings after a 47-6 win over Baird in its opener last week at Roscoe.
But for the Plowboys to improve their record to 2-0, they must find a way to beat a Cross Plains team tonight on its home turf.
And while Roscoe is 2-2 this season â matching its total wins for the past two seasons â the team is 0-2 on the road so far.
Here are recent results for the Sweetwater Middle School eighth grade White volleyball team:
Vs. Big Spring
Sweetwater âCâ lost 12-25, 4-11. Leading servers and points: Kalei Hayes 2, Addy Jones 2.
Sweetwater âBâ lost 14-25, 23-25. Leading servers and points: Xaveria Clark 5, Caprice Cepeda 3, Avery Garcia 3.
Big Spring âBâ tournament
Sweetwater lost to Monahans 22-25. 22-25. Leading servers and points: Caprice Cepeda 9, Dharma Hernandez 6, Ainsleigh Nelson 5, Alex Perez 3.
Five of District 4-3Aâs six football teams have finished the non-district portion of their schedules and are idle this week, with Monahans â which takes on Canyon â the lone exception.
The second, and by far most important, half of the season gets started when the teams begin district ac-tion next week.
So now â while the teams (except for Monahans) get a breather âseems as good a time as any to take a look at the teams (including Sweetwater), how they have fared so far and what their chances are in one of the stateâs best 3A districts.
