With less than four min-utes to play in the first half, things were looking good for Sweetwater in Fridayâ€™s battle with Brownwood for a district playoff berth at Mustang Bowl.
While the game was tied at 7-7, Sweetwater had the ball and, after forcing a Brownwood punt moments earlier, had the momentum as well. But then things started to go sour for the Mustangs as Brownwood made its decisive run.
