Bray Amos is shown scoring one of the four Sweetwater touchdowns in Fridayâs homecoming game at Mustang Bowl.
However, Wall held off a second-half comeback to pull out a 42-28 victory.
Facing a 21-point deficit and forced to turn the ball over on downs at Wallâs 18-yard line with 6:23 left in the third quarter, Sweet-waterâs hopes of a miracle comeback appeared to be dead here Friday night.
But 21-point leads arenât what they used to be, and it wasnât long until the Mus-tangs were poised to pull off that miracle after cutting Wallâs lead to 35-28 with 8:13 to play.
The Sweetwater High School varsity volleyball team will host its final pre-district game Tuesday against Levelland before starting 4-3A play at Monahans on Saturday.

Ted Chambliss goes up to make an interception for Blackwell in Fridayâs 45-0 win over Trent. Blackwell remained unbeaten at 4-0 with the victory in its first home game of the season.
The Hornets ran just 11 plays in Fridayâs game, which ended at halftime due to Six-Manâs 45-point mercy rule. Blackwell has won three of its games by the mercy rule but faces a tough game at Blanket this Friday.
Blackwell (4-0) romped past Trent 45-0 on Friday to stay unbeaten, while Nolan Countyâs other six-man team â Highland â finally broke through for their first win of the season by outscoring Sands 56-42.
Blackwell 45, Trent 0
BLACKWELL â After playing its first three games on the road, Blackwell fin-ally got some home cooking and needed just one half to beat Trent (2-2) by the 45-point mercy rule.
Blackwell led 24-0 after one quarter and added 21 points in the second stanza, while running just 11 plays before play was halted.

Itâs still relatively early in the 2013 season and the start of district action is still three weeks away. But for a Sweetwater team trying to bulld confidence, beating Wall today would be a major boost for the Mustangs.
