Fridayâs 28-6 win at Mus-tang Bowl over Big Spring was the first for Sweetwater since becoming a member of District 5-3A and finally halted a nine-game streak in district play that dated back just over two years.
Roscoeâs Plowboys easily had their best defensive effort of the season. At the same time, the Blackwell Hornets had a season-high point total in their contest.
Yet both teams are still in search of their first victories despite those milestones, as they are now 0-7 overall.
Roscoe (0-2 in district) did not allow a point over the final three periods but also failed to score against Roby in a 14-0 defeat.
Chris DeLeon ran for 70 yards and also recovered a fumble for the Plowboys.
