GREENWOOD â€” Once again, Sweetwater got off to a slow start in Fridayâ€™s non-district game at Midland Greenwood. But this time, the Mustangsâ€™ comeback â€” make that comebacks â€” were not enough.
Greenwood twice built 14-point leads with the help of six Sweetwater turnovers. Then the Rangers (3-2) held on for dear life to survive a thrilling fourth-quarter rally by the Mustangs for a 28-26 victory.
It was an especially tough loss for Sweetwater (3-2), which exploded big plays all over the field â€” primarily through the air â€” and nearly forced overtime with an almost miraculous finish.
ROSCOE â€” Roscoe trailed just 6-0 after one quarter against Mundayâ€™s heavily-favored Moguls, providing some hope for the Plowboy fans who showed up for the schoolâ€™s homecoming.
However, Munday dashed those hopes by finding the end zone six times over the next two periods en route to a 55-6 victory.
The only solace for Ros-coe fans was that the Plow-boys (0-5) avoided a shutout on Eduardo Gallegosâ€™ 61-yard touchdown run with 4:42 to play.
BIG SPRING â€” Sweet-waterâ€™s volleyball team has made big strides this sea-son. But the Lady Mustangs were unable to pull off what would have been a big upset in Fridayâ€™s district opener at Big Spring.
The Lady Steers, ranked No. 9 in the latest Texas Girls Coaches Association Class 3A poll, swept past the Lady Mustangs by scores of 25-20, 25-21 and 25-15.
Sweetwater Red 6
Sweetwater Red (1-4) got its only points on a 43-yard pass from Seth Peeples to Nathan Weidebusch in the fourth quarter but came up just short at Mustang Bowl. On defense, Kris Duran had an interception and tipped pass and Chris Castro had a tackle for a loss.
â€śWe played hard and are proud of the kidsâ€™ effort,â€ť said coach Al Hunt.
Sweetwater Red 45,
The Sweetwater JV Red team jumped out to a 33-0 lead after the opening per-iod as they improved to 4-1 this season.
