After weeks of competition and drills, now it comes to tough action that really matters.
Sulphur Springs started off the 7-on-7 season hosting Gilmer and later played against the talent-laden Buckeyes at their place. The Wildcats have twice played in league games in Mineola, coming out undefeated. The league is composed of Mineola, Quitman, Winnsboro and Mount Vernon.
Saturday they face a different, tougher challenge as they play at West Mesquite. The state-qualifier tournament features some of the best teams in the Metroplex.
Sulphur Springs has games at 9, 10 and 11 a.m. on Saturday at the West Mesquite practice field. They will be taking on West Mesquite, Arlington High and Wylie East.
“We’re definitely expecting to face stiff competition. On name alone you know they will be some talented teams. The winner of the pool advances out of pool play and the other three will go home. So four teams advance, the winners of the two semifinal games qualify for the state tournament,” said coach Matt Young.
Young continued, “We are ready for this event. On both sides of the ball we have steadily improved over the last month and as coaches are really looking forward to seeing our players perform against this level of competition.”
