MONAHANS â€” Sweet-waterâ€™s football team made the long trip to Monahans on Friday knowing it might face long odds of getting into the Class 3A playoffs without a victory.
They also knew they had to play better defense than what they have shown for most of this season.
After Fridayâ€™s 28-9 win, the Mustangs are undoubtedly feeling a lot better about that defense.
They also are probably feeling a lot better about their playoff chances, al-though there is still some work to do before that pos-sibility becomes reality.

ROSCOE â€” The Hamlin Pied Pipers proved to be a major roadblock to the Roscoe Plowboysâ€™ playoff hopes here Friday as they dominated the scoreboard and came away with a 34-0 victory.
