March 21, 2012

Sweetwater’s 8-6 win over Wylie on Tuesday has dramatically changed the team’s outlook through the first two games of the 2012 District 5-3A softball season. And the Lady Mustangs’ victory could not have been more dramatic.

Stangs get no mercy from Wylie

March 21, 2012

Sweetwater ran into a high-scoring Wylie team when the teams met in their District 5-3A base-ball opener here Tues-day, and the Mustangs were soon in a hole from which they never recovered. The Bulldogs needed just five innings to decide the issue at Newman Park as they came away with a domi-nating 16-1 win that was ended by the 10-run mercy rule. Sweetwater fell to 6-7-1 overall, while Wylie improved its season mark to 9-3.
