Mum won’t be the word when viewing Sulphur Springs and Whitehouse play tonight.
More likely, it will be fans sitting on the edge of their seats, watching the night air full of footballs, as two offensive teams hit the gridiron at Gerald Prim Stadium.
Just like leopards never change their spots, boths sets of Wildcats like score.
One thing is for sure - the scoreboard will be clicking like a slot machine.
During the last five meetings, Sulphur Springs has won four by an average score of 46.2 to 37.0.
Whitehouse won last year 38-33. But in 2012, Sulphur Springs really kicked their offense into high gear, scoring 70 points to thrill their fans.
“We know Whitehouse, we know their mentality and what they are about,” said Greg Owens, Sulphur Springs head football coach. “I think it will be a good high school game.”
Whitehouse comes in the game at 2-0 and ranked No. 5 in the state, averaging 50 points a game.
But the good news for Sulphur Springs is that Whitehouse is allowing 30 points a game. So the hometown Wildcats should get their chances.
Sulphur Springs bounced back well from a 55-20 opening loss to 5A Tyler Lee, with a 34-14 win over Sherman.
The Wildcats are 1-1 and 11 point underdogs at home to Whitehouse according to some experts.
“We are excited about starting off the season with two wins. We have areas in which we are striving to build upon and areas to correct,” said Adam Cook, Whitehouse head football coach. “We feel blessed to be ranked this season, but also understand that with ranking comes a huge target on your backs. We still must come in each day and work to become the best team we can be.”
The coach continued, “Sulphur Springs is a great community with great football tradition. We are excited about the opportunity to compete against such a program. Coach Owens and his staff do an excellent job and have another well disciplined Sulphur Springs team this season. Two great communities coming together to watch there students perform and compete. We are truly blessed.”
