Wylie’s girls drain 11 treys as SW girls fall to 0-2 in district

January 15, 2011

ABILENE — On Friday, the Sweetwater girls basketball team jumped out to a 4-0 lead against Wylie in the first 2:47 of the contest and the host team failed to connect on a field goal until almost halfway through the opening period. But after that slow start, Wylie soon found its shooting touch in a big way and won, 63-32, to maintain a perfect 3-0 record in district play while Sweetwater (0-2, 15-12) is still looking for its first win.

Kelley enjoys big night for Mustangs, but Wylie’s 12 treys too much for SW in District 5-3A opener

January 15, 2011

2-point loss to San Angelo Lake View at home just 72 hours earlier and 13 defeats in 15 games since the start of December, the Sweetwater boys basketball team came in as a huge underdog at Wylie for its District 5-3A opener on Friday night.
But while the final result was a 79-55 loss, the short-handed Mustangs (6-15) not only showed plenty of fight but got excellent games from their top two scorers, 6-8 post Paxton Kelley and 5-9 guard Taylor Jones.

Lady Stangs lose close one

January 12, 2011

A Sweetwater team that came into its district opener against Snyder at Mustang Gym with a 15-10 record, nine wins in its last 11 games and high hopes of a playoff berth never quite found its rhythm Tuesday.
Instead, it was the visiting Lady Tigers who jumped to an early lead and was vir-tually in control all the way in a 46-43 victory.
Still, Sweetwater — which never led — was able to stay within striking distance and had a chance to win or at least send the game into overtime until the very end.
