Mustangs seek further improvement vs. L-View

August 19, 2011

Sweetwater showed noticeable improvement in last week’s opening scrimmage at Lubbock Cooper when compared to the previous year’s result, battling the Pirates to a 1-1 standoff, but the team’s No. 1 offense was unable to score points.
Coach Craig Slaughter is hoping for a breakthrough in that area when the Mus-tangs host San Angelo Lake View tonight in their final scrimmage. The JV White and Red squads both scrimmage at 6 p.m., followed by the varsity at 7:30 p.m.

Mustangs battle to draw in 1st scrimmage

August 13, 2011

WOODROW — While his team’s execution wasn’t as crisp as he’d hoped and the No. 1 unit failed to get into the end zone, Sweetwater head football coach Craig Slaughter was also encouraged by much of what he saw in the Mustangs’ season-opening scrimmage with Lubbock Cooper as the teams battled to a 1-1 draw on Friday.
And the final result was clearly much better than in 2010 when Lubbock Cooper dominated the teams’ scrimmage at Sweetwater, winning by a 4-0 count.

Blackwell posted a sub-.500 record for the first time in three seasons a year ago, losing all three games in district play after a 4-3 start. To get back to their winning ways in 2011, the’ Hornets must rely exclusively on players with limited or no varsity experience.
Ten of the players on the roster are either freshmen or sophomores, while the other four are juniors. Five seniors who earned all-dis-trict recognition this past season have graduated.
