Cumby Lady Trojans take wins
QUINLAN — The Cumby Lady Trojans went on the road to face 3A Quinlan Ford Friday.
Turnovers will kill you everytime.
It’s an old saying, but a true one.
Turning over the ball to the visiting team three times will usually spell disaster and it did here Friday night.
As is the case in many games between equally-matched teams, turnovers played a big role in the outcome between Sulphur Springs and Denton Ryan on Friday night. The unusual part is that only one of the Wildcats’ three turnovers came from its offense.
Friday afternoon in a home match, the Sulphur Springs Lady Cat varsity lost to Princeton by scores of 16-25, 25-27, 19-25 at the SSHS gym.
The Lady Panthers rolled to a 25-16 win in game 1 getting on a hot streak to score the final five consecutive points with steady serving. The pivotal game turned out to be the second contest.
CUMBY — Maybe it was the curse of the ill-fated lights or opening night nerves, call it what you will — it was the Cumby Trojans that chalked up a 26-0 loss at Frazier-Lawrence Field Friday night against the Alba-Golden Panthers.
“We need to execute,” said Cumby Trojan head football coach Ed Perez after the game. “We have to learn to overcome adversity. We are a young team.”
