    Sulphur Springs will take on Mabank and North Dallas today as action continues.
    Meanwhile in Rockwall, the Wildcats scored a 3-1 win over Rockwall-Heath.
    “The game started off great for us, scoring in the second minute of the game,” said Andy Holt, Sulphur Springs head boys soccer coach. “Tony Bravo did a good job of beating two defenders on the left side and sloted a ball across the middle to a wide open Brian De La Rosa, who calmly passed the ball into the goal. Rockwall- Heath tied the game up about 25 minutes into play. We responded quickly with a goal from Bravo. It was 2-1 at the half.   De La Rosa scored the third goal about midway throught the second half.  It was assisted by Jose Garcia.”
    Holt added, “The team played well and looked much better than we did the last time we played Rockwall- Heath. We play Newman Smith tonight at 5:30. They looked strong last night.  We were able to watch about 20 minutes of their game and they looked good.”
    In junior varsity action, the Wildcats JV lost 5-0 to the Paris varsity in Paris.    The Wildcats JV will play the Paris JV today at 4 p.m.
