Wylie ends SW playoff bid

November 11, 2013

On Friday, Sweetwater and Wylie met for the 12th — and from all indications, the last, at least for the forseeable future — time in a district football game.
Once again, it was a game with major district and play-off implications for both of the teams. And as so often been the case, it was the season finale for both the Mustangs and Bulldogs.
However, for a long time, something totally different for the rivalry — a Sweetwater win — seemed eminently possible.

Sub-varsity teams lose final games

November 11, 2013

Sweetwater’s sub-varsity football teams ended their seasons by losing games at Wylie on Thursday.
Sweetwater’s JV finished 2-3 in district and 6-4 over-all after losing 49-12, while the freshman team wound up 0-5 in district and 3-6 overall after losing 47-0.
Max Gomez had a 16-yard touchdown pass to Michael Green as well as a 4-yard TD run for the JV team, while Denzell Moore on of-fense and Branson Guelker and Hunter Mobley on de-fense were also standouts.

Blackwell, L-A to meet Friday

November 11, 2013

Blackwell head football coach Clint Lowry has an-nounced that the Hornets will take on Lueders-Avoca in a Six-Man Division II bi-district playoff game Friday at Westbrook.
The game is scheduled to kick off at 7:30 p.m. and Blackwell will be considered the home team.
Blackwell was the champion of District 8, Division II after beating Robert Lee last week. Lueders-Avoca (7-3) finished as the runner-up to Loraine in District 7, Division II.
Blackwell is making its second straight playoff ap-pearance. It lost to Loraine in bi-district last season.

Roby clinches playoff spot in 7-1A by beating Roscoe 40-14

November 11, 2013

ROBY — Roscoe’s bid to seize the No. 3 and final playoff spot from Roby in District 7-1A, Division II was met with stiff resistance Friday on the Lions’ home field — and we’re not talk-ing about the wind, either.
Roby, which led both Roscoe and Cross Plains by a game for the No. 3 spot coming in, nailed down its playoff berth with a con-vincing 40-14 victory.

Roscoe JV rallies past Wylie’s sophs in finale

November 11, 2013

The Roscoe junior varsity football team rallied from a 12-point deficit entering the fourth quarter to knock off Wylie’s sophomore team, 24-20, in its season finale on Thursday.
The come-from-behind win allowed Roscoe’s JV to finish 5-4 overall.
The Plowboys’ comeback in the fourth quarter began with a 7-yard touchdown pass from Isaiah Gonzales to Juan Solis, plus a two-point run by Johnathon Cuellar that cut Wylie’s lead to 20-16.
Cuellar then scored what proved to be the winning points for Roscoe on a 5-yard TD run later in the period, and added a second 2-point run after the score.
