Lady Mustangs on verge of postseason after defeating Wylie

April 9, 2012

ABILENE — After scor-ing a season-high 15 runs in a key win at Big Spring three days earlier, Sweet-water again brought out the big lumber on Friday when it traveled to Wylie for the last of four straight road games in District 5-3A softball play.
And after a 10-6 win, the Lady Mustangs are on the verge of making history as just the second team to advance to postseason play since Sweetwater began playing UIL softball.

Bulldogs pull away to defeat Mustangs

April 9, 2012

ABILENE — For four in-nings of Friday’s rematch, a Sweetwater team that had lost 16-1 at home to Wylie in its District 5-3A opener stood toe-to-toe with the first-place Bulldogs.
The Mustangs even held a brief 4-1 lead after pushing across three runs in their half of the fourth inning before Wylie tied it by scor-ing three runs as well.
Unfortunately, the scor-ing pretty much ended there for Sweetwater, while Wylie was just getting started. The Bulldogs took their first lead, 8-4, with a four-run fifth and went on to a 10-5 win over the Mustangs.
