    That was the general feeling about the Royse City scrimmage by many Sulphur Springs players and coaches.
    After not playing well and getting a wake up call against Liberty-Eylau in the first scrimmage, the second scrimmage of the year was much better as the Wildcats dominated Royse City.
    Sulphur Springs scored nine times on the night and just allowed three touchdowns by the Bulldogs.
    Sulphur Springs had close to 600 yards of total offense according to offensive coordinator Matt Young.
    The Wildcats had over 300 yards rushing, Willy Ivery scored on runs of 70 and 75 yards. Tim Monk, Larry Pryor, Jesse Ortiz and Jaylon Hawkins all scored as well.
    Quarterbacks Parker Aguilar and Pryor combined to complete 25 of 36 passes for three touchdowns, one interception and over 300 yards. Pryor threw 15 times, completing 10 and had a touchdown rushing and passing. Aguilar had 21 attempts with 15 completions with two scores.
    “Receivers had a solid night catching the ball.  Lacy had a touchdown reception and Carpenter had two TDs,” Young said. “Ben Brooks, Parker Heath and Mitchell DeYong showed dependable hands. C.J. Stephens also showed some big play potential.”
    Young continued, “Our offensive linemen had a solid night, we executed well and were a little more physical. Spencer Bramlett and Jess Jenkins both continued to improve with Watkins providing stability in the middle.”
    The coach added, “ Overall we still have work today.  Details on routes will lead to not being open in future games.  Technique up front will lead to losses on plays as we move into the non district schedule. This was just a scrimmage and we play a great opponent on Friday where we have to get the details right, tempo right and the physicality will be at a higher level.”
