‘Stangs stun 5A Odessa High to end losing skid

March 26, 2012

It’s not often that a Class 3A team gets the chance to play against a Class 5A team like Odessa High because it is usually such a daunting task to compete well, espec-ially after three straight losses by a combined score of 42-7.
But Sweetwater proved up to the challenge Saturday when it hosted the Broncos and won, 4-2, to snap its three-game skid.
Brandon Howell threw a complete-game win, and he and Greg Aiken each collected a pair of RBI as Sweetwater got back to .500 (7-7-1) for the season with its win over Odessa (8-15) in the non-district game.
