It’s a big game to be played under usual circumstances.
The Sulphur Springs Wildcats and Marshall Mavericks clash Friday at a neutral site.
Wondering why? Blame it on the rain or Halloween.
The teams play at 7:30 p.m. at Mount Pleasant’s Sam Parker Field due to wet playing conditions at Gerald Prim Stadium in Sulphur Springs.
“We hated to give up a home game, but we figured this was better for all involved,” said Sulphur Springs head football coach Greg Owens.
“It still boils down to execution of the fundamentals,” said Cumby Trojan head football coach Ed Perez. “They (Wolfe City) are a good football team, and we are definitely going to need to try to stop them early and not have to play catch up. Every week we just focus on the next one, which is the most important game, looking ahead is dangerous, and I want our kids to remain focused.”
