SW getting best-of-3 rematch with Pampa

May 1, 2015

Two years ago when a history-making Sweetwater softball team last made it to the playoffs, the Lady Mustangs lost 5-0 to Pampa at Lubbock Coronado High School in the second round in a one-game matchup.
Today, with a lineup that has five players from the 2013 team, Sweetwater returns to the same location to face Pampa in a first-round playoff — only this time with a best-of-3 setup. Game 2 — and Game 3, if necessary — will also be held at Lubbock Coronado. The eventual winner faces Fort Stockton or San Elizar-io in the second round.
