It’s time for the Sulphur Springs Wildcats to make hay.
In Hopkins County, a location with a rich history of the dairy industry, I don’t think that phrase has to be explained.
The Wildcats are favored by 30 points over Mount Pleasant, now they need to make hay and win over an opponent below them in the standings.
The Sulphur Springs sub-varsity football teams recorded one win and two losses in home action against Mount Pleasant.
The Thursday crowd at Gerald Prim Stadium not only enjoyed the cooler weather, but a fine showing by the Sulphur Springs junior varsity as they took a 41-6 win. The Wildcats freshmen A team lost 52-8 while the freshmen B squad fell, 38-0. The freshmen did not have a full lineup due to injuries.
There will be battles fought tonight under the Friday night lights for area football teams.
The Cumby Trojans will host the winless Gateway Gators at Frazier-Lawrence Field with both vying for an initial district victory. Homecoming celebration has been in full swing at Como-Pickton as they will face a new opponent, the Rivercrest Rebels. Cooper will go on the road to challenge a new district competitor, Paul Pewitt, in a duel that will likely decide the top slot for District 7-2A Division II. The Winnsboro Red Raiders look to put another “W” in the win column as they travel to challenge longtime foe, the Caddo Mills Foxes. The Mount Vernon Tigers will be on the prowl hunting rabbit tonight hoping to stop the speed of a winless Atlanta team.
