Turnovers doom Sweetwater as B’wood’s win ends playoff hopes

October 29, 2011

With less than four min-utes to play in the first half, things were looking good for Sweetwater in Friday’s battle with Brownwood for a district playoff berth at Mustang Bowl.
While the game was tied at 7-7, Sweetwater had the ball and, after forcing a Brownwood punt moments earlier, had the momentum as well. But then things started to go sour for the Mustangs as Brownwood made its decisive run.

Roscoe falls to J’rabbits to stay winless

October 29, 2011

ROSCOE — The struggles continue for Roscoe’s Plowboys, who saw their record fall to 0-9 after losing to Rawls, 28-7, on Friday.
Roscoe avoided a shutout on a 2-yard run by Eric Padilla with 1:36 left in the game, but by then the Jackrabbits (4-5, 3-1 district) had things well in hand as they clinched a playoff berth in Dist-rict 7-1A, Division II.
But offense has been a problem all year for the Plowboys, who have scored just 55 points and reached double figures in a game just once.
