It wasnâ€™t as easy as the final score might suggest, but the â€śdroughtâ€ť is over for Sweetwater. And so is a three-game losing streak.
Fridayâ€™s 28-6 win at Mus-tang Bowl over Big Spring was the first for Sweetwater since becoming a member of District 5-3A and finally halted a nine-game streak in district play that dated back just over two years.
Roscoeâ€™s Plowboys easily had their best defensive effort of the season. At the same time, the Blackwell Hornets had a season-high point total in their contest.
Yet both teams are still in search of their first victories despite those milestones, as they are now 0-7 overall.
Roscoe (0-2 in district) did not allow a point over the final three periods but also failed to score against Roby in a 14-0 defeat.
Chris DeLeon ran for 70 yards and also recovered a fumble for the Plowboys.
Sweetwaterâ€™s JV teams traveled to Big Spring on Thursday and lost both games. Both teams will play their final home games when they enter-tain Snyder this Thurs-day starting at 5 p.m.

Sweetwater White got its three touchdowns on a 5-yard pass from Kae-gan Jeffrey to Duanta Williams, a 47-yard run by Jay Lomas and a 17-yard fumble return by Daven Alvarez. Jeffrey ran over a 2-point con-version and threw to Williams for another, while Lomas ran for the teamâ€™s other two points.
Alvarez recovered a fumble to lead Sweetwa-terâ€™s defensive effort.
After coming alive with 25-22 win in Game 3 to extend Fridayâ€™s match, the Sweetwater volleyball team was unable to sustain its momentum against No. 8 Big Spring here Friday.
Instead, the Lady Steers â€” who had won the first two games by scores of 25-15 and 25-16 â€” came back to wrap up the match with a 25-14 win in Game 4. Big Spring improved to 3-2 in district with the win, while Sweetwater dropped to 1-4.
The Sweetwater High School tennis team lost 11-8 to San Angelo Lake View on Thursday, but many players and pairings won their matches.
