Mustangs hope to get ‘O’ charged up again tonight

September 12, 2014

Sweetwater has scored a total of 98 points during a 2-0 start. But in a 32-27 win last weekend at Muleshoe, the offense was shut out the final two periods and the Mustangs had to rely on defense and special teams to help the team overcome a 21-18 halftime deficit.
Isaiah McGee proved his worth on both units as the talented senior scored on a 43-yard punt return and a 30-yard interception return in the second half to give Sweetwater a tough win over the Mules (1-1).
