User Rating: / 38

MESQUITE — Sulphur Springs went 1-2 from three games played in pool play at the Mesquite State Qualifying 7-on-7 tournament Saturday.
    Mesquite Horn and West Mesquite both went 3-0 and will advance to the state finals in College Station, July 10-12. The teams opted not to have a championship game.
    Sulphur Springs lost 47-26 to Horn; the Wildcats fell 45-22 to Plano; the lone win was a 51-36 decision over Mesquite Poteet.
 Coach Matt Young said, “We went 1-2. We lost to Horn in a  back and forth game but could not close the gap late.  Melroy Givens played well in the secondary and C.J. Stephens made some nice catches.”
    Young added, “Then we lost to Plano in round 2.  They slowed us offensively early.  Our defense played well led by Jaylon Dugan and Zach Spigner. We beat Mesquite Poteet in Game 3.  Quarterbacks Larry Pryor and Drew McCullough both throwing the ball well and Dillon Carpenter and Cain Cody making catches down the field. I am really pleased with how they played, and how they closed out the 7 on 7 season.”
  Coach Triston Abron added, “We got better defensively through the 7-on-7 season. Our defensive backs and backers got lots of reps that will help us defending the pass.”
