The Sweetwater Junior League (ages 13-14) Astros competed in a District 5 tournament last week and finished as runnerups after losing 8-6 to Snyder in Mondayâ€™s title game.
The team was treated to a hamburger supper by the Sweetwater Veterans of Foreign Wars No. 2479 after their game Monday. Members of the team posed for a picture prior to the game with Lionel Mendez (standing far right) of VFW 2479.
A big inning helped the Sweetwater Junior League Astros tie its District 5 final 5-5 after three innings, but Snyderâ€™s Astros came back for an 8-6 victory to claim the championship at Sweetwaterâ€™s Sports-manâ€™s Park in a matchup of 13-14 year-old teams.
Rocky Perez ripped a two-RBI single in Sweet-waterâ€™s five-run third and scored the tying run on Branson Guelkerâ€™s RBI groundball. The Astrosâ€™ rally started when Junior Lawhon singled, Hunter Mobley was hit by a pitch and Cory Mendez and Max Gomez walked to score Lawhon.
