Mustangs hoping for good start against Mavs

August 30, 2012

Two weather-shortened scrimmages against Wich-ita Falls Hirschi and San Angelo Lake View weren’t able to accomplish every-thing Shane Mobley had hoped. However, the first-year Sweetwater head coach still thinks his team will be ready for Friday’s season opener at the Sammy Baugh Classic against a highly regarded Eastland squad.
And Mobley knows that his players’ ability to successfully execute his new spread offense will be crucial to the final outcome.

Plowboys face Bearcats to begin Classic, season

August 30, 2012

After an 0-10 season a year ago, Roscoe head coach Jonathan Haseloff would like nothing more than for his Plowboys to win today’s 7:30 p.m. season opener against De Leon to begin the Sammy Baugh Classic.
A victory at Mustang Bowl over the Bearcats, who were 3-7 a year ago, would go a long way toward getting the program back on track to reaching the heights it has normally enjoyed.
And playing against Haw-ley’s Wing-T offense, which is similar to De Leon’s, in last week’s final scrimmage will help Roscoe know what to prepare for today.

Lady ‘Stangs win two on road

August 30, 2012

GRAHAM — Sweetwater’s Lady Mustangs won both ends of a dual match here Tuesday as it swept past Graham and Breckenridge in three games.
Sweetwater (12-7) defeated Graham 25-15, 25-16, 25-8 and beat Breckenridge 25-20, 25-15, 25-12 in two of its most dominating per-formances of the season. The Lady Mustangs will be at Frenship’s two-day tournament starting Friday.

Everman vs. Del Valle marks Classic milestone

August 29, 2012

Regardless of who wins the game, Saturday’s finale of this year’s eighth annual Sammy Baugh Classic at Mustang Bowl will mark a fairly significant milestone.
When Class 4A Everman and El Paso Del Valle meet that day at 6 p.m., it will mark the first time that two teams above the 3A level have played in the Classic, and of course, the first time they’ve played each other.
In fact, there’s been only one other team in Classic history above Class 3A that has participated.

V’ballers back on road today at Graham

August 28, 2012

Sweetwater’s volleyball team will stay on the road for a dual match today in Graham after placing third in the Silver Division at San Angelo’s Nita Vannoy tournament this weekend.

Mustangs play final scrimmage at L-View

August 27, 2012

Despite persistent weather delays, Sweetwater got in 26 plays — 16 on offense and 10 on defense — in its final scrimmage Friday at San Angelo Lake View before play was halted.
The Mustangs produced an impressive 135 yards, 86 of it coming on 6-of-10 passing, with their new spread offense and scored against the Chiefs on a 7-yard run. Another Sweetwater drive reached Lake View’s 4-yard line before coming up short.
Sweetwater will host Eastland this Friday to begin the regular season.

Mustangs at L-View for their final tuneup

August 24, 2012

With just a week left until the season opener against Eastland on Aug. 31 at the Sammy Baugh Classic, Sweetwater head football coach Shane Mobley is hop-ing to get a good evaluation of his team in today’s final scrimmage against San Angelo Lake View at the Chiefs’ stadium.
Though it will be played primarily under a controlled format, the scrimmage — which begins at approximately 6:30 p.m. after the freshman and JV teams scrimmage at 5 — will more closely resemble what fans can expect to see once the season begins.
