SW falls yard short in 20-16 loss

September 8, 2012

You knew the Mustangs would find a way to win here Friday when Sweetwater and Andrews renewed their old rivalry.
Unfortunately for a large homecoming crowd, it was the visiting Mustangs who came out on top — but just barely — in a 20-16 thriller.
Andrews (2-0) opened up a double-digit (20-10) lead with 4:40 left when quarterback Shane Dolgener hit Austin Luna with a 25-yard touchdown pass.
But Sweetwater needed just 73 seconds of playing time to cut it to 20-16 when quarterback Sean Morrow led a furious drive which he capped with a 2-yard run.
