MINEOLA — The date was changed, but the results remained the same.
Sulphur Springs dominated play, winning all games played in action Tuesday, which were originally set for Thursday.
The games in the Mineola 7-on-7 league had to be changed due to the advancement of the Lady Jackets softball team to the state tournament in Austin.
The games played under humid and windy conditions were just another step in the development of the Sulphur Springs squad.
The Mineola league, composed of Mineola, Sulphur Springs, Winnsboro and Quitman got a new member with Mount Vernon teams participating for the first time.
The varsity won by one-sided scores over Winnsboro and Mineola at Meredith Stadium.
“Brennan Brock and Dallas Dannheim had strong defensive performances with interceptions returned for touchdowns. Tim Monk and Melroy Givens were both quick to the ball throughout the night defensively,” said coach Matt Young. “Offensively quarterbacks Larry Pryor and Parker Aguilar were on the mark continuing to progress with their accuracy and play-calling. Cain Cody and Dillon Carpenter were big targets inside with Mitchell DeYong and Parker Heath having consistent hands on the outside.”
C.J. Stephens, Alex Burney and Dustin Fields also caught touchdown passes.
The Sulphur Springs junior varsity was split into two teams which were also undefeated.
Scores turned in show the Wildcats winning 18-13 over Mineola and defeated Quitman 47-33.
Young said, “We split the JV into two teams so more could play. Tanner Ramirez and Drew McCullough did a great job quarterbacking. Scott Galarza and Bubba Hall were all over the field on both sides of the ball. Cole Cooper provided a spark offensively with catches and runs after the catch. Derek Lamb continued his strong play. John Hogan has a nice night defensively.”
Jaylon Hawkins started on the varsity and switched to the JV due to the shortage of players. He had an interception in each game.
Sulphur Springs will be in action Saturday in a state qualifying tournament for varsity teams. Games will be played at the West Mesquite practice field.
“We will take one team to Mesquite Saturday,” Young said. “We have games at 9, 10 and 11 a.m.”
