Blackwell takes 1st defeat; Roscoe, Highland shut out

September 8, 2012

Tough competition on the gridiron Friday made it a rather long night for all three of Nolan County’s area football teams.
Blackwell, which was coming off its first Six-Man win on the field in nearly two years with a season-opening victory over Westbrook the previous week under new head coach Clint Lowry, was defeated 56-30 by Jayton.
Highland and Roscoe, who like Blackwell are going through the rebuilding process with several young players, were shut out on Friday. Highland lost to Sterling City by a score of 50-0, while Roscoe lost 40-0 at Irion County.

Blackwell tries for 2-0 start

September 7, 2012

Following its 54-6 home victory over Westbrook in its Six-Man opener last week, Blackwell will stay at Hornet Stadium to host Jayton as it tries for a 2-0 start at 7:30 tonight.
Jayton figures to be a tougher opponent for Blackwell after defeating Lueders-Avoca 48-0 in its opener. The Hornets, who are coming off their first on-field win in nearly two years, are ranked as a one-point underdog against the Jaybirds but should be con-fident after last week’s win.

‘Stangs try to build on their winning formula

September 6, 2012

After all the talk about its new spread offense, Sweet-water didn’t look all that different from Mustang teams of the past in last Friday’s 23-13 season-opening win over Eastland.
Of Sweetwater’s 326 total yards, 291 came by the run as the Mustangs completed just five passes.
Meanwhile, the defense gave up a lot of yards (384) but was scored on by East-land’s offense just once — with 3:34 left in the fourth quarter — even though the Mavericks took a whopping 81 snaps in the contest.

Lady ‘Stangs crush C-City

September 5, 2012

It may be too early to think about making it to the postseason in late October, but something different is happening with the 2012 Sweetwater volleyball team — it’s beating its opponents regularly and convincingly, no longer seemingly content to extend its matches by a game or two.
The latest example came Tuesday when the team finally came home from a three-week-long road swing to entertain Colorado City.
