SAN ANGELO â€” It looks like opposing defenses may be in for another long year against Sweetwater when the season begins Aug. 29.
Sweetwater, which aver-aged 34 points a season this past year, scored six times on Friday in its season-opening scrimmage when the Mustangs traveled to San Angelo to face the Class 5A Lake View Chiefs.
Most of the damage was through the air. Sweetwater accounted for four of its six touchdowns and 370 of its 478 total yards by taking advantage of the Chiefsâ€™ secondary, with four different players â€” Bray Amos, Michael Lawrence, Hunter Mobley and Michael Green â€” catching TDs. Jacoby Hunt struck paydirt on a 2-yard run, and the other score was on a 64-yard run by No. 2 QB Max Gomez, who finished with 76 yards on four runs Friday for the Mustangs. No. 1 QB Kaegan Jeffrey and Gomez were a combined 22-of-35 and at least eight different players caught passes.
â€śI thought our first group did a great job moving the ball down the field and I was proud of the offensive line,â€ť said head coach Shane Mobley afterward. â€śI thought that was big for us. Defensively we played well. We bent but we didnâ€™t break, and our number twos showed potential. We had some missed tackles but also good open field stops.â€ť
