BROWNWOOD â€” After pulling within eight points of Brownwood with 6:52 left and then forcing the Lions to start consecutive possessions from inside their 5-yard line, Sweetwater was poised to complete a rainy fourth-quarter comeback here Friday.
Clinging to a 21-13 lead, Brownwood was pinned at its 2 after a 47-yard punt by Sweetwater quarterback Kaegan Jeffrey with 4:08 to play. But the Lions went to their wildcat formation, and Eddie Duque raced 95 yards before finally being dragged down at Sweetwaterâ€™s 3.

Roscoe (1-3) got touch-downs from Eduardo Gal-legos and Vincent Pantoja, and the defense shut down Baird (1-3) to complete the victory. The Bears finished with just 157 yards.
