Bray Amos is shown scoring one of the four Sweetwater touchdowns in Fridayâ€™s homecoming game at Mustang Bowl.
However, Wall held off a second-half comeback to pull out a 42-28 victory.
Facing a 21-point deficit and forced to turn the ball over on downs at Wallâ€™s 18-yard line with 6:23 left in the third quarter, Sweet-waterâ€™s hopes of a miracle comeback appeared to be dead here Friday night.
But 21-point leads arenâ€™t what they used to be, and it wasnâ€™t long until the Mus-tangs were poised to pull off that miracle after cutting Wallâ€™s lead to 35-28 with 8:13 to play.

Ted Chambliss goes up to make an interception for Blackwell in Fridayâ€™s 45-0 win over Trent. Blackwell remained unbeaten at 4-0 with the victory in its first home game of the season.
The Hornets ran just 11 plays in Fridayâ€™s game, which ended at halftime due to Six-Manâ€™s 45-point mercy rule. Blackwell has won three of its games by the mercy rule but faces a tough game at Blanket this Friday.
Blackwell (4-0) romped past Trent 45-0 on Friday to stay unbeaten, while Nolan Countyâ€™s other six-man team â€” Highland â€” finally broke through for their first win of the season by outscoring Sands 56-42.
Blackwell 45, Trent 0
BLACKWELL â€” After playing its first three games on the road, Blackwell fin-ally got some home cooking and needed just one half to beat Trent (2-2) by the 45-point mercy rule.
Blackwell led 24-0 after one quarter and added 21 points in the second stanza, while running just 11 plays before play was halted.
