Softballers lose on 2nd 3-run homer

April 22, 2013

Even though the No. 2 spot in District 4-3A was already assured, Saturday’s 6-5 loss to Wylie is not the way Sweetwater’s softball team wanted to end its regular season heading into the Class 3A playoffs.
The Lady Mustangs — who face Pecos in a best-of-three series starting Thurs-day — rallied from an early 3-0 deficit by pushing across five unanswered runs for a 5-3 lead over Wylie head-ing into the visitors’ final at bat in the seventh. But Sweetwater had no answer for Makenley Lunsford.
