Getting That Feeling Again -- Wildcats open playoff run clipping the Eagles’ wings

VAN — There’s bad news for all Class 4A football teams still in the playoffs.

Sulphur Springs is getting back into their winning ways. It’s not a full swagger yet, but it’s building.

The Wildcats took the first step toward defending their Class 4A Division II state title Friday night in Van, whipping Lindale 47-19 before a packed house.

Sulphur Springs, now 8-3, advances to play either Terrell or Waco University in the next round. The season ends for Lindale with a 14-4A district title and a 6-5 record.


Lee leads with fleet feet in defeat over Lindale

VAN – The Sulphur Springs Wildcats knew that Lindale quarterback Matt Broussard was the main cog in the Eagles’ rushing attack. But, SSHS QB Colton Lee showed he was the best runner on the field Friday night.

PRINCETON - The lights at Jackie Hendricks Stadium in Princeton Friday may have been new and bright, but it was a dark end to the 2009 season for the Cumby Trojans.

The black streak of the Lindsay Knights’ third quarter scoring left a 48-14 mark on the Trojans’ playoff run.

“We executed our game plan perfectly the first half,” said Cumby Trojan head football coach Ed Perez. “We let one play change the whole outlook of the game—that one play. We got away from doing what we were doing; we let the wheels fall off after that.”

CORSICANA — DaQualin Evans is hoping that his timing will be good in college.

Evans said he was sad to leave Sulphur Springs High School too early to be on the team which won state in 2008. His friends are now wearing state championship rings.
