November 12, 2012

ABILENE — Sweetwater knew coming into Friday’s season finale at Wylie that its playoff hopes rested on a near-flawless effort on both sides of the ball, plus some outside help. But it was second-ranked Wylie that had that kind of game instead as the unbeaten Bulldogs (10-0 overall, 5-0 in District 4-3A) struck early and often for a 55-20 victory which ended the Mustangs’ year.
