Itâ€™s still relatively early in the 2013 season and the start of district action is still three weeks away. But for a Sweetwater team trying to bulld confidence, beating Wall today would be a major boost for the Mustangs.
Wall, which is currently ranked No. 5 in the AP poll in Class 2A, is 3-0 while Class 3A Sweetwater is 2-1 after back-to-back wins against Andrews (39-31) and Breckenridge (51-33) the last two weeks follow-ing a season-opening loss against Eastland.
Sweetwater coach Shane Mobley thinks his team will be better prepared for tonightâ€™s game after losing at Wall 43-20 a year ago.
â€śEvery (game) is huge for us right now,â€ť he said Wednesday. â€śSo weâ€™ve got to step our game up.â€ť
The offense will need another productive outing after scoring 40 points per game so far, but the defense must also slow a Wall attack that is averaging 43.7 points per contest. And the Hawksâ€™ defense has also been quite solid, allowing a total of just 22 points. â€śTheyâ€™re probably the best defense weâ€™ve faced so far,â€ť Mobley said.
