The long trip to Monahans didnâ€™t have a happy ending for Sweetwaterâ€™s teams on the diamond Tuesday. They will both play host to Wylie when District 4-3A action resumes this Friday.
Monahans 7, Sweetwater 3
Sweetwater (15-4, 2-1) dropped out of a tie for first as Monahans led 5-0 after one inning and held on to hand the Mustangs â€” who had won 12 straight â€” their first loss since Feb. 22.
Sweetwater is now tied with Snyder for second with Wylie (3-0) atop 4-3A.

The start of the Sweet-water baseball teamâ€™s Dis-trict 4-3A home opener was hardly what the Mustangs wanted, as they trailed visiting Big Spring 4-0 before coming to bat in the bottom of the first inning.
But Sweetwater is 2-0 in District 4-3A â€” and 15-3 overall â€” after its 12th con-secutive win as the Mus-tangs rallied to defeat the Steers, 9-6, here Friday.
Down 6-2 with just six outs left, Sweetwater rallied to tie Big Spring 6-6 in the teamsâ€™ 4-3A softball game here Friday when the Lady Mustangs scored four runs in the sixth inning. Sweet-water collected six of its 11 hits for the game and sent 10 batters to the plate.
Big Spring, however, had an answer.
The visiting Lady Steers came back to score twice in their half of the seventh to defeat Sweetwater, 8-6, and improve to 1-2 in district.
