Mustangs face must-win vs. 0-7 Steers

October 13, 2011

Theoretically, Sweetwater needs to win two of its last three games to have a real-istic shot at the playoffs af-ter losing to Abilene Wylie 20-15 in its district opener.
And as far as Mustang head coach Craig Slaughter is concerned, the winning needs to start this Friday against an 0-7 Big Spring squad at Mustang Bowl.
How much urgency is there for Sweetwater?

Wylie uses big plays to hold off SW

October 11, 2011

ABILENE — Sweetwater picked a good time — Fri-day’s District 5-3A opener at Wylie — to play its best game of the 2011 season.
Unfortunately, the Mus-tangs still weren’t too happy at the end. That’s because the Bulldogs were still able to pull out a 20-15 victory despite running 31 fewer plays than Sweetwater.
And that wasn’t the only statistic the Mustangs led in. Coach Craig Slaughter’s club racked up 11 more first downs (21-10) and 47 more yards (322-275) in the con-test than Wylie and had just one turnover, the same as the Bulldogs.
