A Winning Debut -- Interception sparks Sulphur Springs over Paris, 33-21

User Rating: / 2

PARIS — This game turned on defense.

Sure the running backs looked good in this season opener between Paris and Sulphur Springs.

But in the battle of Wildcats, it was a “Pick 6” by Sulphur Springs defender that switched the momentum.

Hiding back in man-to-man defense like a fox in a henhouse, Sulphur Springs defensive back Sharard Timmons was waiting. When the time was right he bolted in front of a Corbin Taylor pass and returned in 58 yards down the sidelines for  a touchdown. Timmon’s big play came when the Wildcats were holding a slim 21-14 lead over the spirited Paris bunch. The extra point was missed, but the visitors had some breathing room taking a 27-14 lead following the play with 3:42 left in the third period.

“That play fired us and got us going. I saw some life in our team when Sharard took that pick to the house. It got everyone excited,” Sulphur Springs head coach Greg Owens. “ I thought our whole defense played very well.”
