Now Or Never; Sulphur Springs, Hallsville do battle Friday for final district playoff berth

Perhaps when the 10th week of football season rolls around and all the playoff slots are not decided - you can quote or sing Elvis Presley.

It really is now or never for Sulphur Springs and Hallsville as they collide Friday at Bobcat Stadium at 7:30 p.m.

Both teams are 2-3 in district play and coming off defeats. But they are still alive for the big prize. Hanging in the balance - the big reward is the final District 13-4A playoff berth.

While Elvis sang “It’s now or never,” Sulphur Springs head football coach Greg Owens has deemed the game a “do or die” contest.
