That’s More Like It -- Wildcats return to winning ways, hammering MP 47-7

MOUNT PLEASANT — It was a perfect game plan executed without a flaw.

Sulphur Springs head football Greg Owens outlined earlier in the week how he wanted the Wildcats to jump out quickly and not let up against Mount Pleasant.

Sulphur Springs did just that scoring early and often, taking a 47-7 win here Friday night in Mount Pleasant. The Tigers were pretty toothless in comparison with the high-octane Wildcat attack.

The Tigers got just 2.2 yards per carry on the ground. Accounting for 179 total yards compared to 422 total yards by the Wildcats. Sulphur Springs averaged 6.6 per yards per rush.

Sulphur Springs scored four times in the first  quarter and the rout was on as the Wildcats dominated the entire night.

“We had a fast start. We’d talked about doing things right from the beginning. We took it and scored. We forced their hand. Our defense go a safety and it was on from that point,” Owens said. “We stymied them again and again. We did a great job, we stepped up and did what we had to do. That’s one down.”


Wildcat Notes: Physical defense, efficient offense spells victory

MOUNT PLEASANT - The Sulphur Springs Wildcats’ offense was efficient Friday night and their defense was physical, but the kicking game set the tone for the blowout victory.

Winnsboro nabs upset win over Caddo Mills, 35-20

WINNSBORO — The Red Raiders must not read the Harris Ratings.

Caddo Mills came in as 15-point favorites, but it mattered little to the homestanding Winnsboro team as they took a 35-20 win over their 13-2A rivals.

Nathan Jeffery, the record-setting running back for Caddo Mills was held in check, sort of. The 6-1, 195-pound senior had 202 yards rushing and three scores, but he could not lead his team to victory.
