Missed opportunities in the first half for Sweetwater led to second-half domination in the Mustangsâ€™ Dis-trict 4-3A showdown Friday with Midland Greenwood.
The visiting Rangers, after spotting Sweetwater a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, gradually took control and came away with a 31-13 win that leaves both teams 1-1 in district play.
Greenwood (5-2 overall) was led by quarterback Kam Williams, who accounted for 381 yards â€” 245 pas-sing and 136 rushing â€” and four touchdowns. The 6-3, 200-pounder had scoring runs of 10, 9 and 7 yards and also threw a 10-yard TD pass to Logan Day.
ROSCOE â€” The Roscoe Plowboys evened ther rec-ord at 2-2 in District 7-A, Division II on Friday as they shut out a winless Ranger team, 52-0, before the home crowd at Plowboy Field.
One week after losing to district leader Albany 69-12, Roscoe dished out its own punishment. The Plowboys got two TD runs by Eduar-do Gallegos and one from Vincent Pantoja and Este-ban Benivamondez in rush-ing for 379 yards to Ran-gerâ€™s 28. Gallegos ran for 165 yards and Pantoja 102. Also, Cutter Davila was 15-of-25 passing for 193 yards and had TD throws to Gallegos, Benivamondez and Shelton Toliver.

Tennis team wins 14 of 18 matches against Greenwood
Sweetwater High Schoolâ€™s tennis team did exception-ally well this past Tuesday, winning 14 of 18 matches against Midland Greenwood at the SHS courts.
After suffering a defeat at Big Spring three days earlier that eliminated any hopes of reaching the playoffs, the Sweetwater volleyball team â€” which by many accounts has had an excellent season â€” showed off its talent while beating Midland Greenwood in three games at Mustang Gym.
After winning the first two games over the Rangerettes by scores of 25-15 and 25-17, Sweetwater (24-15 overall) staged a terrific rally to get a sweep with a 25-19 win in Game 3 that dropped Greenwood to 1-8 in district.
While only two Nolan County high school football teams will see action today, their games will be crucial as Sweetwater and Roscoe will both be seeking wins on their home fields today with a chance to seriously dam-age the playoff hopes of the teams they face.
Sweetwater (1-0, 3-3) hosts Greenwood (0-1, 4-2) at 7:30 p.m. in the first-ever district meeting of the two schools, while Roscoe (1-2, 1-5) entertains Ranger (0-3, 0-6) at the same time.

Since playing each other for the first time ever in 2000, Sweetwater and Mid-land Greenwood have met on an almost annual basis.
In that time the Mustangs and Rangers have played each other 11 times, includ-ing three times in the play-offs, with Sweetwater hold-ing a 7-4 edge. In fact, the teams faced each other twice in the same season in 2002 and 2005, when they met during both the regular season and the playoffs.
But the rivalry has a new wrinkle this year.
