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.
