Little things can add up to big results, like a 61-22 defeat at the hands of Whitehouse.
Miscues, missed routes or blocks, dropped passes when all totaled - can be a recipe for disaster.
Sulphur Springs head coach Greg Owens has been stressing all year at practice to the Wildcats to get the details right and the rest would take care of itself.
Sulphur Springs stayed with No. 5-state ranked Whitehouse for a while in the offensive department, but fell short at the end. Managing just one touchdown in the second half.
Willy Ivery had 18 carries for 98 yards. He averaged 5.4 yards a carry and scored runs of 27 and 2 yards against Whitehouse. He caught two passes for 13 yards.
Larry Pryor rushed seven times for 28 yards and Mitchell DeYong had nine carries for 43 yards.
Pryor, at quarterback, completed 22 of 37 passes for 190 yards, one touchdown, one interception.
Alex Burney and Dillon Carpenter both had seven catches for 6 yards. Isaiah Lacy added four grabs for 26 yards, including a 17-yard touchdown reception. Ben Brooks and Dustin Fields had one catch each.
“As coaches, we look for the good and bad in each performance. We are getting closer offensively,” said Matt Young, Sulphur Springs offensive coordinator. “After a rough start, Pryor played a solid last three quarters. The offensive line opened up some running room but we have to eliminate some little mistakes. Carpenter and Burney caught the ball well but we have to be sharper on our routes.”
The Wildcats play in Paris Friday at 7:30 p.m.
