COMMERCE — A bend but do not break defense of host Texas A&M University-Commerce made two crucial stops on fourth down to withstand a late rally by Southeastern Oklahoma State for a 19-14 victory on Saturday night at Memorial Stadium.
In a four touchdown loss, there usually isn’t much of a silver lining. But, the Sulphur Springs Wildcats can look to the previous two seasons’ success after such losses as they mull over the 60-34 defeat to the Sherman Bearcats on Friday.
SHERMAN — In a wild, packed gym the Sulphur Springs Lady Cats overcame the hostile surroundings to get a key win and stay alive in the District 13-4A volleyball race.
The Lady Cats won over Sherman by scores of 25-21, 13-25, 27-25, 17-25, 15-10.
“We won when we had to, it’s tough to get a win on the road,” said Brandi Small Sulphur Springs head volleyball coach. “We showed we can play through adversity. The win puts us in a good spot.”
“There is nothing more exciting than overtime in football,” said C-P Eagles head football coach Paul Tullis. “I thought the kids did a great job overcoming some adversity and coming up with a great win. Our offense did a great job putting points on the board and the defense came up with some big plays but none more than the stop on the two point conversion.”
