District play starts tonight

October 7, 2011

The all-important district season finally starts tonight for Sweetwater and Roscoe, while Blackwell and High-land have two more weeks before playing their first of just three district contests.
Sweetwater goes to Wylie for a District 5-3A matchup of teams with 3-3 records.Tonight’s contest will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at Wylie.

Mustangs go to Wylie to start district

October 6, 2011

The non-district portion of the schedule is finally over. On Friday, the serious part begins as Sweetwater and Wylie match identical 3-3 records at 7:30 p.m. at Wylie — with the hope of going 1-0 in District 5-3A and taking an important step toward a playoff berth.
For Sweetwater, this will also be a chance to take a step toward re-establishing itself as a district contender for the first time in three years. The Mustangs have just one district win since 2008. So a victory, especially over a perennially-tough Wylie squad, would be huge for the program.
