Lady ‘Stangs down Snyder to earn berth in postseason

October 31, 2013

Sweetwater was prepared to wrap up a playoff berth by defeating Snyder here Tuesday in its final volley-ball match of the season. But a funny thing happened — the officials failed to show up and the teams’ match was rescheduled for Wed-nesday at Mustang Gym.
Fortunately, the delay didn’t seem to hurt Sweet-water. Except for a meltdown in Game 3, the Lady Mustangs dominated the Lady Tigers as they won in four games by scores of 25-16, 25-14, 19-25 and 25-10. The win ended a five-year postseason drought for Sweetwater, which is back in the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

Sweetwater, Snyder try again today

October 30, 2013

The Sweetwater volleyball team will try again today to advance to end a five-year playoff drought.
Sweetwater — bidding for the No. 4 spot in District 4-3A — was to host Snyder in Tuesday evening’s season finale at Mustang Gym. But a schedule mixup involving the officials for the match caused the teams to cancel and reschedule the varsity match for 6:30 p.m. today at Mustang Gym. The JV and freshman games for Sweetwater and Snyder on Tuesday were played, but replacement officials for the varsity match could not be found, resulting in the 24-hour delay.

Mustangs lose a scoring fest

October 28, 2013

When two teams with powerful offenses meet, it often turns into a track meet, or basketball on a football field, or whatever.
By the time the dust had settled here Friday night, Big Spring and Sweetwater had combined to score 107 points and gain over 1,000 yards. But all that really mattered — in the end — was that the visiting Steers came away with a 65-42 win at Mustang Bowl.
The victory improves the Steers record to 2-1 in Dis-trict 4-3A with two games left and puts them in prime shape for a playoff berth.

SW teams lose pair to B-Spring

October 28, 2013

Both of Sweetwater’s sub-varsity football teams lost road games at Big Spring on Thursday. The JV (6-2, 2-1) fell 12-6 and the freshmen (3-4, 0-3) lost 34-14.
Sweetwater’s JV led 6-0 early on in its game against Big Spring after a 3-yard TD pass from Max Gomez to Hunter Mobley.
But the Mustangs were unable to score again — in part due to turnovers, penalties and breakdowns in pass protection. A holding penalty with about three minutes left proved costly as it denied a Gomez touchdown on a dive that would have tied the game at 12.
