ABILENE â€” A convincing Sweetwater victory at Snyder on Tuesday, coupled with Wylieâ€™s surprisingly-narrow win at Greenwood, gave the Mustangs hope they could put up a tough fight here Friday.
But the No. 5 Bulldogs had other ideas.
While Sweetwater jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, Wylie was relentless after gaining the upper hand as it rolled to a 76-25 win.
The Mustangs (1-2, 12-9) entered the game enjoying a roll of their own, with the team winning eight of its past nine contests. But they were held to a season-low point total by the Bulldogs, who had barely gotten past Greenwood 60-57 just three days earlier.
No player got to double figures for Sweetwater, with Kaleb Hooverâ€™s eight points leading the way.
Isaiah McGee scored six, Deandre Gatson three and Cole Maxwell, Quentin Wetsel, Michael Hunt and Rhett Torres two for Sweetwater which trailed 18-8 after one quarter and 34-19 at half-time. Wylie then turned up its defense as the Bulldogs allowed just one field goal and a total of six points in the second half.
Sweetwater is back home to face Big Spring (0-3) on Tuesday while Wylie (3-0) goes to Snyder.
