Moments later, the Wildcats showed off their air assault as quarterback Drew McCullough connected with Galarza for 45-yard scoring toss. Maddox's kick made it a 14-0 lead.
The Wildcat defense held Sherman again and soon the Wildcats were back on offense.
Quarterback Tanner Ramirez threw a 25-yard scoring pass to Galarza with the nifty receiver/running breaking tackles and bounding into the end zone. The kick was no good for Sulphur Springs, but the opening period ended with the Wildcats holding a commanding 20-0.
Sherman drove from their own 35-yard line for a score. The Bearcats got a scoring reception from Tre Crockett with 7:03 left before intermission. The visitors were on the scoreboard, trailing 20-6.

The second half belonged to Sulphur Springs as they outscored the visitors 26-0.
Nice tackles by Dakota Stalcup and Coby Winchester forced a Sherman punt.
Sulphur Springs took over at their own 37 with 8:07 left in the third period. Rosamond ran for six yards. Then McCullough connected with Galarza for a first down.

Maddox was perfect with the kick, making it 26-12.
Again it was the Wildcats defense sparking the attack. Stalcup partially blocked a Sherman punt, giving the Wildcat offense the ball at Sherman's 30-yard line. Rosamond ran for 25 yards, then capped the drive with a five-yard burst up the middle. The extra point by Maddox was good and the lead was built to 33-12 by the Wildcats.

Winchester ended the drive with an 11-yard scoring run. The kick failed, but Sulphur Springs was cruising, up 39-12.
The final touchdown of the game came from the Sulphur Springs defense. Sean Fryer had a pick six, snatching an interception out of mid air and zipping 28-yards for a score.
The Wildcats won by a 46-12 final at home.
“Rosamond did a good job running as did Winchester. Galarza played well and Tanner Graham had a 40-yard reception to set up a score. Overall the boys played with a lot of emotion and made plays,” said coach Bruce Silman.
