SNYDER â€” Instead of a three-game winning streak and a playoff spot in District 4-3A, the Sweetwater girls basketball team were unable to build on a promising start at Snyder on Friday. As a result, the playoff hopes will have to wait awhile longer.
Sweetwater, after leading most of the first half, saw a 15-10 advantage turn into a 19-16 halftime deficit and never recovered, as the Lady Tigers came away with a 50-42 win to move into a three-way tie with Sweet-water and Big Spring for third place.
SNYDER â€” After losing four games in a row to fall near the bottom of District 4-3A, the Sweetwater boys basketball team took out its frustration with a dominant 44-27 win at Snyder on Fri-day to keep its flickering playoff hopes alive.
Led by Kaleb Hoover with 22 points and Dylan Ben-nettâ€™s 13, Sweetwater â€” now 2-5 in district play as well as 13-5 overall â€” excelled against the last-place Tigers in most areas, especially on defense.
