That win certainly hit the spot. It might not have made up for the 60-34 loss last week in Sherman. But beating somebody 56-0 is not a bad way to cure what ails you.
PRE-GAME HONORS - Andy Holt, Kerry Wright, Mike Broyles and Randy Teal (representing the late Bill Looney) were introduced to the crowd. They were inducted into the Wildcat Hall of Honor. It was fitting that three were introduced by their former coaches at Sulphur Springs High School.
Holt, the current soccer coach at his alma mater, said the honor was very meaningful and special to him. The group was honored at a pre-game reception, then before the game with Greenville started, they were introduced before the overflow home crowd at Gerald Prim Stadium.
PINK OUT - again, I did not see officials with pink on, but lots of others from players to drill team, band, cheerleaders, players were clad in pinl recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness month. A fitting tribute.
CAPTAIN'S LOG - Sulphur Springs players - Chris Sorley, Tanner Gilbreath, Sidarius McGill and Fernando Arellano were captains for the pre-game coin toss. Greenville won the toss - they got the ball and it was downhill from there for the Lions.
BAND SOUND - Both bands had nice shows. With Greenville playing Journey and the standout Sulphur Springs band playing tunes from Memphis. It was good to have the music to liven up the crowd. By the half, the Wildcats were up 35-0 and just missed another score.
KICKING IT - Fernando Arellano had a full night of work as a kicker. He had nine kickoffs, including his 14th touchback. He also was a perfect 8-for-8 on extra points, he now has scored 33 points on the year.
KNEELING TO BE NICE- Sulphur Springs had control of the game early against the depleted Greenville Lions. In fact, the scoreboard was around the six minute markof the fourth quarter when Wildcat head coach Greg Owens gave the order to backup quarterback Blake Macek to take a knee in the victory formation. Some Greenville fans shouted to the field, "Play ball" and did not appreciate the merciful move by Owens. Owens said he was not going to score again.
QUICK GAME - after some of the long games Sulphur Springs has had like last week at Sherman with 94 points and the marathon game with Whitehouse on homecoming. This game was very quick indeed. The game ended at 9:34 p.m. according to my semi-official clock on my phone.
