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.”
