After all the tournaments, district games and tough road trips, now the hard work pays off with the playoffs.
Sulphur Springs and Carrollton Creekview teams clash today in a doubleheader at Forney.
The girls game is at 6 p.m. with the boys contest at 8 p.m. in Class 4A, bi-district soccer playoff action.
The Sulphur Springs Wildcats come into the tournament riding an 8-0 record in district play as they notched their third district title in the last four years.
Sulphur Springs finished the regular season 17-3-5 overall.
“We are looking forward to the game against Creekview. I think we are similar teams, so it should be a good match up,” said Andy Holt, Sulphur Springs head boys soccer coach. “They have some skilled guys up top and have some good defenders. They placed fourth in District 20-4A. It sounds like it is going to be a soccer weather kind of night. Nice and cool.”
The Lady Cats also come into the playoff game on a roll, having won their last two district games.
Sulphur Springs is 10-10-4 and
Carrollton Creekview has a 16-3-3 record on their maxpreps soccer site.
“They finished second behind Highland Park. We have played them two other occasions, each year they are stocked with Division I college players. They are nearly 5A size and have a deep talent pool to draw from,” said Jesus DeLeon, Lady Cats head soccer coach. “Most of the changes we put in this year were aimed at getting us ready for the playoff level competition. We played tougher tournaments against Dallas to increase our exposure to that level of play.”
