Nothing makes an offensive coordinator smile like a win and good team play.

    Sulphur Springs put together their best game of the season, winning 43-9 at Paris.
    The Wildcats did things on offense, they have been working on since early August. Not only did Sulphur Springs win, but they flexed their muscles and showed what the team could do when they put it all together.
    The 28 points in the third quarter was a game changer. Paris thought they had a chance down 15-3 at the half. When the fourth period started the Sulphur Springs lead was at 43-3 and the contest was decided.
    Wildcat quarterback Larry Pryor completed 15-of-21 passes for 144 yards with two scores. He also rushed for 167 yards and scored once.
    Willy Ivery was a big threat for the running game, scoring three times and racked up 144 yards on 22 totes.
    “I was pleased how our kids responded in the second half,” said Matt Young, Sulphur Springs offensive coordinator. “I believe Ivery and Pryor had their best nights, however we are not close to where we want to get.  Way too many yellow rags on the ground.  We have to eliminate those or we will continue to have drives stopped.”
    Young added, “I was pleased how Brady Carrell and Landon Watkins did blocking up front.  Also very happy with Alex Burney, Dillon Carpenter and C.J. Stephens catching the ball on the outside. Ben Brooks and Parker Heath also had big blocks that lead to big runs. We show up go back to work.  Always a process, fortunately we are making progress.”
