It wasnât as easy as the final score might suggest, but the âdroughtâ is over for Sweetwater. And so is a three-game losing streak.
Fridayâs 28-6 win at Mus-tang Bowl over Big Spring was the first for Sweetwater since becoming a member of District 5-3A and finally halted a nine-game streak in district play that dated back just over two years.
Roscoeâs Plowboys easily had their best defensive effort of the season. At the same time, the Blackwell Hornets had a season-high point total in their contest.
Yet both teams are still in search of their first victories despite those milestones, as they are now 0-7 overall.
Roscoe (0-2 in district) did not allow a point over the final three periods but also failed to score against Roby in a 14-0 defeat.
Chris DeLeon ran for 70 yards and also recovered a fumble for the Plowboys.
Sweetwaterâs JV teams traveled to Big Spring on Thursday and lost both games. Both teams will play their final home games when they enter-tain Snyder this Thurs-day starting at 5 p.m.
Big Spring 41,

Sweetwater White got its three touchdowns on a 5-yard pass from Kae-gan Jeffrey to Duanta Williams, a 47-yard run by Jay Lomas and a 17-yard fumble return by Daven Alvarez. Jeffrey ran over a 2-point con-version and threw to Williams for another, while Lomas ran for the teamâs other two points.
Alvarez recovered a fumble to lead Sweetwa-terâs defensive effort.
After coming alive with 25-22 win in Game 3 to extend Fridayâs match, the Sweetwater volleyball team was unable to sustain its momentum against No. 8 Big Spring here Friday.
Instead, the Lady Steers â who had won the first two games by scores of 25-15 and 25-16 â came back to wrap up the match with a 25-14 win in Game 4. Big Spring improved to 3-2 in district with the win, while Sweetwater dropped to 1-4.
