SW looks to extend season

October 27, 2011

Sweetwater wraps up its season Friday when it hosts Brownwood at Mustang Bowl. Or does it? Coach Craig Slaughter sure hopes that’s not the case.
Because for the first time in Slaughter’s three-year tenure, his team is playing for a trip to the playoffs.
Sweetwater (4-5 season, 1-2 district) can also knock Brownwood (5-3, 1-1) com-pletely out of the playoff picture with a win, assuming Wylie also wins Friday over Snyder. The Bulldogs and Tigers are both 2-0 in District 5-3A.
