September 24, 2012

WALL — After a 19-point win at Breckenridge the previous week, Sweetwater never got comfortable when it paid a visit to a very good Wall team on Friday.

And Eubank’s head-turn-ing start was just the begin-ning of a remarkable first half for the 175-pound sen-ior, who accounted for five touchdowns before inter-mission in staking his team to a 37-12 advantage.

September 20, 2012

Sweetwater’s two wins in the 2012 season have both come against Class 2A com-petition. But the Mustangs’ third and final 2A opponent may be their toughest.
