SW needs win, G’wood defeat to extend season

November 8, 2012

After a gutwrenching loss to Monahans this past week, Sweetwater’s football team must have two things happen Friday in order to get into the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
First, Sweetwater must defeat Wylie, which not only has clinched a playoff spot but is the No. 2-ranked team in the state with a 9-0 record and is 4-0 in district play. Also, Sweetwater must hope that Snyder (1-3, 3-6) beats Greenwood (2-2, 6-3) which would make Sweet-water the district’s No. 3 team with a 3-2 record.
