A second-half rally Friday in front of a homecoming crowd almost allowed Sweetwater to defeat Pecos in the teams’ District 1-4A, District II showdown.
A 25-point deficit was down to four, 46-42, in the third period and it was 54-49 in the fourth. But the Mustangs couldn’t pull it off as the Eagles got a late TD to hold off Sweetwater’s comeback and come away with a 62-49 victory.
