Mustangs scare Lions but fall by 9

February 8, 2012

If Brownwood thought that its last district game at Mustang Gym for at least the next two years would be easy, Sweetwater had them thinking otherwise by game’s end Tuesday.
Unfortunately, close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. As a result, the playoff-bound Lions (5-1) left with a 57-48 win that kept them in contention for a share of the District 5-3A title. But it took clutch free throw shooting at the end for Brownwood to finally hold off Sweetwater (1-6), which twice got within four points until the Lions hit 7-0f-8 from the line in the final 1:07 to seal the win.

Haskell (6-4) claimed the No. 3 berth Tuesday by beating Rotan. Hamlin (9-1) and Munday (8-2) took the top two spots in the district.

ABILENE — Wylie had plenty to celebrate when the No. 1-ranked Lady Bulldogs took the floor on their home gym for the final time this season on Friday, and com-pleted a perfect run through District 5-3A with an easy 64-38 win over Sweetwater.

‘Dogs use big run to crush Mustangs

February 6, 2012

ABILENE — Sweetwater stayed reasonably close to No. 22-ranked Wylie’s boys until late in the second quarter of the teams’ District 5-3A game Friday, but a huge 31-0 run that began at the point led to an 85-34 victory.
The Mustangs were trailing just 31-23 when Wylie’s Mike Lopez, who would score 28 points, hit two 3-pointers and a two-pointer to end the half.
Two of Lopez’s team-mates, Bryson Fowlkes and Patrick Walker, combined for six points and Lopez ran off eight more with two 3s thrown in again — his sixth and seventh three-pointers — to make it 53-23.
