COLEMAN â€” Sweetwa-ter jumped out to a 21-7 lead after one quarter, and held double-digit ad-vantages the rest of the way en route to a 56-41 road win at Coleman on Friday night.
Sweetwater (2-0) built its lead to 24 points on three occasions in the second half until Coleman cut into the lead slightly with a late rally.
Taylor Jones had 18 points, Paxton Kelley 16 and B.J. Walker 11 for the Mustangs, who will host Merkel at 7:30 p.m. Monday before taking a short break for the Thanksgiving holiday.
A bad start was too much for the Sweetwater girls basketball team to overcome here Friday as they lost to Class 5A Abilene High, 55-36, at Mustang Gym.
Sweetwater fell behind 18-4 after the opening quar-ter before tightening up on defense in the second period, when they held Abilene to just six points. But the Lady Mustangs still trailed 24-14 at halftime, and were unable to get any closer over the final two quarters.
Taylor McKoy scored 18 points for Sweetwater, but she was the only Lady Mustang to reach double figures in the contest as the team fell to 1-3.
The Highland girls picked up their first win of the 2010-11 season on Friday, but the Highland boys and Roscoe girls both lost.
Highlandâ€™s girls (1-3) rallied in the second half for a 45-41 win over Sands. However, Highlandâ€™s boys lost 63-2 and Roscoeâ€™s girls fell to Cross Plains 29-28.
After losing their last two games by a combined two points, Highlandâ€™s girls had to overcome a 23-18 halftime deficit to beat Sands.
The Lady Hornets pulled ahead by a point, 29-28, at the end of three periods and then outscored Sands 16-13 in the fourth quarter.
Dylon Adames scores for Sweetwater on Tuesday during overtime against Hawley while teammate Kevin Sepeda watches. Adames scored five of his seven points in the extra period to help the Mustangs pull out a 71-62 victory in their 2010-11 season opener. Sweetwaterâ€™s boys travel to Coleman for a 6:30 p.m. tipoff Friday while the girls will play host to Abilene High, also starting at 6:30 p.m.
ROSCOE â€” The Roscoe girls got their first win of the season by beating Blackwell, 50-23, on Tuesday.

Blackwell (0-3) was led by Jennifer Allen and Amanda Bullard with six while Kaitlyn Gaston had four, Brooklyn Harris three and Jessica Morrow and Reccie Roland two. Also, Bullard pulled down 12 rebounds and Roland seven.
Breckenridgeâ€™s fourth-quarter rally was too much for the Sweet-water girls basketball team to over-come here Tuesday as the Lady Mustangs were defeated, 44-40, in their home opener of the season.
The Lady Buckaroos finished the game with a 10-3 run, taking their first lead with 1:28 left while taking advantage of Sweetwaterâ€™s struggles at the free throw line. The Lady Mustangs made just 4 of 18 for the game, including 2-of-9 in the fourth quarter, and also had 33 turnovers, but still had a chance to win or at least force overtime until the final seconds of the contest.
Talk about working overtime.
For some reason, thatâ€™s what the Sweetwater boys basketball team has to do when it faces Hawley.
After having to go overtime to beat the Bearcats in both meetings this past season, the Mustangs once again required an extra period to beat Hawley, 71-62, here Tuesday in their 2010-11 season opener.
The Roscoe girls cross country team finished in 11th place at this past weekend at the state meet held in Round Rock. The Plowgirls qualified for state with a third-place finish the previous week at the regional meet in Arlington. Pictured from left are alternate Alura Renteria, Katie McIntire, Kim Norris, Crystal Luna, Justina Brasuell, Mirian Solis, Jacinda Morales and Amber Craig.
