SW teams lose pair to B-Spring
Both of Sweetwater’s sub-varsity football teams lost road games at Big Spring on Thursday. The JV (6-2, 2-1) fell 12-6 and the freshmen (3-4, 0-3) lost 34-14.Sweetwater’s JV led 6-0 early on in its game against Big Spring after a 3-yard TD pass from Max Gomez to Hunter Mobley.But the Mustangs were unable to score again — in part due to turnovers, penalties and breakdowns in pass protection. A holding penalty with about three minutes left proved costly as it denied a Gomez touchdown on a dive that would have tied the game at 12.Sweetwater’s defense had a solid effort the entire game and was led by Adrian Vizzerra and Colby Green-wood, who were in on several tackles.Sweetwater’s freshmen also scored first in their contest with Big Spring, as they took an early 6-0 lead on Javier Olguin’s 8-yard run. But it was the fourth period before they scored again on Peyton Hill’s 10-yard run as Big Spring rallied for the win. Hill also had a 2-point conversion run. Other offensive standouts for Sweetwater were Jordan McGee (two pass completions to Hill), Dylan Ausborn, Robert King, Keevin Houston, Junior Lawhon, Dylan Heiskell, Tristan Vasquez, Luis Vas-quez and Garrett Davison.The standouts on the defensive side were Olguin, Hill, John Clift, Vasquez, Davison and Matt Figueroa. Both teams play their final home game this Thursday against Monahans.
