SS soccer playoffs Tuesday

Sulphur Springs soccer fans get to see both teams in playoff action in the same place.

The Wildcats and Lady Cats will be in soccer playoff action Tuesday at Forney. The Lady Cats take on Frisco at Forney at 6 p.m. followed by the Wildcats vs. McKinney at 8 p.m. Sulphur Springs is the home team.

The Lady Cats and Wildcats both earned first round byes in district competition.

“McKinney is very good up top and they have a good center midfielder No. 15,” said Sulphur Springs head soccer coach Andy Holt. “They are solid in the back with a good sweeper and good outside backs.  Their goalkeeper is aggressive and athletic.  I think we have to play good defense and don't allow their guys to get behind us.  For the most part we are healthy.  We have lost Juan Juarez for the season due to an infection in his leg.  I think we are ready to play.”

Wildcats win 10-7 thriller over Lobos

User Rating: / 52

Twice the Wildcats rallied from behind.

The second time, sparked by a Jocko Spataro two-run double, Sulphur Springs got the lead to stay as they took a 10-7 win Friday over Longview.

The crowd in and around Eagle Stadium, including bleacher creatures on the top row of Gerald Prim Stadium got to see a thrilling battle with more twists and turns than a rollercoaster.

The District 13-4A game came down to the final innings, and actually down to one at-bat and in particular one pitch.

"It was a curveball that didn't curve, it just hung there," said Spataro of the Luke Nash pitch in the sixth inning. Spataro blasted the pitch down the left field line with two outs and two runners on base. Longview outfielder Andrew Deerfield tried to make a running grab, but the ball hit off his glove allowing Spataro to advance to second with a double, but more importantly two runs to score and break the 7-all tie.
