Blackwell-Trent football action

September 23, 2013

Ted Chambliss goes up to make an interception for Blackwell in Friday’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 Friday’s game, which ended at halftime due to Six-Man’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 dominates; Highland finally wins

September 23, 2013

BLACKWELL — 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.

SW can take big step

September 20, 2013

It’s still relatively early in the 2013 season and the start of district action is still three weeks away. But for a Sweetwater team trying to bulld confidence, beating Wall today would be a major boost for the Mustangs.
Wall, which is currently ranked No. 5 in the AP poll in Class 2A, is 3-0 while Class 3A Sweetwater is 2-1 after back-to-back wins against Andrews (39-31) and Breckenridge (51-33) the last two weeks follow-ing a season-opening loss against Eastland.

SW hosts high-flying Hawks

September 19, 2013

Wall and Sweetwater, who will meet Friday at Mustang Bowl for what will be Sweetwater’s homecoming contest, have a few things in common.
First of all, both have gotten their 2013 seasons off to solid starts.
Wall, which is current-ly ranked No. 5 in the Associated Press high school poll in Class 2A, has posted a flawless 3-0 record so far and the Hawks are coming off their most impressive win, a 35-14 victory over highly-regarded Sonora this past week.

3-0 Hornets finally get to play at home

September 19, 2013

Call them road warriors, but not playing at home hasn’t hurt Blackwell so far.
In their first three games the Hornets have had con-vincing wins at Westbrook (52-0), Jayton (32-14) and Lingleville (88-42), the last foe a late replacement when Rule cancelled a few days before it was scheduled to play against Blackwell.
But despite the last-minute change and having to make a 141-mile road trip to Lingleville, Blackwell was more than up to the chal-lenge as the Hornets racked up 544 total yards, all but 27 of it on the ground.

Highland seeking a breakthrough vs. another rugged foe

September 19, 2013

Highland’s 0-3 start this season is a bit deceiving, as two losses have been by a total of nine points. And it won’t get any easier as the Hornets face 3-0 Sands at home this Friday.
But the games that really count aren’t here yet, and coach Jeff Shelton is still confident in his team.
“One thing the kids in Highland have always been good about is looking at the big picture,” Shelton said.
