Loboes cool off Mustangs

January 14, 2013

Sweetwater came into its District 4-3A opener with a seven-game winning streak yet likely facing its toughest challenge of the season.
And from the start, it was an uphill battle as Monahans led 8-1 before Sweetwater hit his first field goal at the 2:25 mark of the opening quarter, en route to a 63-43 win. Monahans (17-3 overall) never let the Mustangs get closer than four points after its quick start at Sweetwater’s gym.

“The girls were very determined tonight,” said Sweetwater coach Al Miller. “They were determined to take care of business.”
