Mustangs win 5-1, end 3-game skid

April 9, 2014

A great pitching effort and timely hitting Tuesday allowed Sweetwater to end its three-game losing streak by beating Midland Green-wood, 5-1, here Tuesday.
Sweetwater (3-3, 16-6) solidified its sagging playoff hopes out of District 4-3A by moving within a game of Snyder and Big Spring, who are both 4-2 and tied for second place after the Steers — once 0-2 — won their fourth straight Tuesday by beating the Tigers, 9-5. The Mustangs also moved ahead of Monahans (2-4), which lost 14-4 Tuesday to first-place Wylie, which is 5-1.

Lady ‘Stangs lose wild one to Rangerettes

April 9, 2014

Enjoying a 7-5 lead after five innings, the Sweetwater Lady Mustang softball team seemed headed for its first district win of the season when it faced second-place Midland Greenwood here Tuesday. But Greenwood ruined the celebration with a 10-run assault in the last two innings to beat Sweet-water, 15-11.
Greenwood which trails first-place Snyder by two games, improved to 5-2 in district play and 12-12 over-all. Sweetwater, despite by far its highest-scoring game in district play so far, fell to 0-7 and 9-13.

Despite missing a regional berth, Sweetwater beat out five of the district’s eight competing golf teams with a three-round 1,104 total. The two teams who are advancing to regionals are Snyder (1,001) and Monahans (1,012). Sweetwater’s No. 2 team shot 443-1,264 for a seventh-place finish.

Tigers rally late to beat S’water 7-4

April 7, 2014

Two weeks ago, life was sweet for the Sweetwater baseball team.
The Mustangs were 15-3 overall, had a 12-game win-ning streak and were 2-0 in district play.
But since that time, not much has gone Sweetwater’s way.
The team lost its third straight Friday, falling 7-4 to Snyder at Sportsman’s Park in a game that saw the Tigers push across five runs in the final two innings — largely due to miscues com-mitted by the Mustangs — in rallying back from a 3-2 deficit.
