Starting the year with an 0-1 record does not sit well with the Sulphur Springs Wildcats or head football coach Greg Owens.
That’s why getting a chance to even their record excites the team.
Heck, they don’t even mind playing on Thursday night instead of Friday. They want to get the bitter taste of defeat out of their mouth.
The Wildcats play at 7 p.m. Thursday against Garland Lakeview Centennial at Williams Stadium.
The Patriots, a 5A team with an enrollment of 2,089 students, lost their opener 35-18 as Plano rallied to take the win.
The Sulphur Spring sub-varsity teams split two football games played Tuesday night at Gerald Prim Stadium.
While the freshmen A team could not overcome turnovers and lost 47-28; the junior varsity got their first win of the year with a 35-16 decision.
