There will be a playoff-like atmosphere on Friday when Sweetwater makes the trip to Monahans to end the regular season at 7 p.m. For Sweetwater, a victory will put the Mustangs back in the playoffs as a No. 3 or No. 4 seed from District 1-4A, Division II after missing out a year ago. In addition, it would give the team its first two-game winning streak of the year entering the postseason. The Mustangs (2-3 in 1-4A D-II) kept their fading hopes alive with a 35-21 win over Fort Stockton after tough back-to-back losses to Pecos and Snyder. Sweetwater’s win not only salvaged its playoff chances but also means the three playoff berths left will come from five teams still in contention — Pecos (3-2), Snyder (3-2), Sweetwater (2-3), Fort Stockton (2-3) and Monahans (2-3). Only Lamesa (0-5) is out of contention. Greenwood (6-0) will be the No. 1 seed....

And for the seniors who were playing their final home game, the frustration was probably the greatest. So the team came out the second half and went to work reversing a 14-7 deficit by scoring on all three third quarter possessions against Fort Stockton while shutting the Panthers down. Helped by having a strong north wind at their back the entire period, the Mustangs used that 21-0 surge to keep their postseason hopes alive with a 35-21 victory....
