April 20, 2011

Lady Stangs win; Stangs fall

April 20, 2011

Despite sweeping Snyder in District 5-3A play this season, while also finishing in a tie with Big Spring for third place in district after a 6-2, nine-inning victory on Tuesday at Snyder in its season finale, Sweetwater’s softball team will not get a chance at the playoffs. Big Spring and Sweetwater both finished with 3-5 records, but Sweetwater lost both district games to Big Spring this season.
Tuesday’s win was still a nice way to finish, and Sweetwater’s District 5-3A fate wasn’t sealed until Wylie (2-6) lost its finale to district champion Brown-wood 19-7 on Tuesday.

Sweetwater Falls To Brownwood

April 16, 2011

BROWNWOOD – The Brownwood Lions clinched at least a share of their third straight district baseball championship with Friday’s 13-6 victory over the Sweewater Mustangs at Morris Southall Field.
The Lions (18-6, 6-0) led 2-1 heading into the third inning, where they erupted for seven runs — including three on a home run by shortstop Levi Perez – off Sweetwater starting pitching Larry Daniel.
Brownwood’s advantage peaked at 11-2 in the bottom of the fourth inning, but Sweetwater (11-15, 1-5) responded with four runs in the top of the fifth to close the gap to 11-6.
