Both Sulphur Springs varsity teams are in key district soccer action tonight against rival foes from Paris.
The Wildcats will be on the road, battling Paris for a district title. Game time for the varsity at 7 p.m. in Paris.
“We are excited to get to play for the district championship,” said Andy Holt, Sulphur Springs head boys soccer coach.
The team has been resting many injuries players during the recent spring break.
Sulphur Springs is 15-3-5 overall and a perfect 6-0 in district.
Holt added, “If we win, we can clinch the title. If Paris wins, then we will need help that last game of the season against North Lamar.”
The coach continued, “Tony Bravo is still banged up and he will be a game time decision. The other guys seem to be feeling better and should be good to go. It’s been a while since we’ve played, but it is the case of both teams. The game should be a good one, with the best two teams in the district battling it. That’s how it should be.”
Sulphur Springs finished second in district last year after winning back-to-back title the previous two seasons.
It will be Senior Night for the Lady Cats at Gerald Prim Stadium. Girls will be honored at the end of the JV game.
The Lady Cats open action tonight with the junior varsity game at 5:30 p.m. followed by the contest at 7 p.m.
Sulphur Springs is 8-10-4 overall, 2-4 in district.
Lady Cats head coach Jesus DeLeon said, “We are trying to improve our playoff position. So we are treating this as must win game. We can move to third in the district if we win the next two games.”
The Lady Cats close out the regular season in North Lamar Friday at 7 p.m.
