SW loses heartbreaker at Greenwood

September 26, 2011

GREENWOOD — Once again, Sweetwater got off to a slow start in Friday’s non-district game at Midland Greenwood. But this time, the Mustangs’ comeback — make that comebacks — were not enough.
Greenwood twice built 14-point leads with the help of six Sweetwater turnovers. Then the Rangers (3-2) held on for dear life to survive a thrilling fourth-quarter rally by the Mustangs for a 28-26 victory.
It was an especially tough loss for Sweetwater (3-2), which exploded big plays all over the field — primarily through the air — and nearly forced overtime with an almost miraculous finish.

Munday spoils Roscoe’s HC

September 26, 2011

ROSCOE — Roscoe trailed just 6-0 after one quarter against Munday’s heavily-favored Moguls, providing some hope for the Plowboy fans who showed up for the school’s homecoming.
However, Munday dashed those hopes by finding the end zone six times over the next two periods en route to a 55-6 victory.
The only solace for Ros-coe fans was that the Plow-boys (0-5) avoided a shutout on Eduardo Gallegos’ 61-yard touchdown run with 4:42 to play.
