It’s not every day that a team’s center has the opportunity to score two touchdowns. But then again, not many teams have centers who are converted quarterbacks.
Sulphur Springs survived a difficult test.Down at home in the fourth quarter, the cream rose to the top.
Behind on the scoreboard 26-22 to a tough Whitehouse team, Sulphur Springs took advantage of turnovers and scored the final 14 points of the game to take a 36-26 comeback win.
“We grew up some tonight,” Sulphur Springs head football coach Greg Owens said wiping his brow after the game. “It was a humid night, we fell behind. We regrouped and matured and came together as a team to get the win. We made the plays we had to make. It was a great win.”
