In many ways it will be the run and gun against just the run.

    While Sulphur Springs has the ability to play well with a balanced offensive attack. Corsicana relies on the running game for 80 percent of their offense.
    The two teams collide at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Tiger Stadium in the final non-district game of the year.
    Corsicana is 1-3 for the year. Their last game was ruled a 20-15 loss against Waxahachie. The game was ended due to weather.
     The Tigers opened the year, losing to powerful Denton Ryan, 38-7. Corsicana then fell 49-21 at home against Red Oak. The lone win of the season is a 36-17 road victory at Forney.
    Corsicana has six offensive and five defensive starters back from a 4-7 team in 2012 which lost in the bi-district round.
    Sulphur Springs won over the Tigers 42-21 last season with Willy Ivery leading the assault with four touchdowns and rushing for over 160 yards.
    The Wildcats are 2-2 for the year. Sulphur Springs got their second win of the year last week as they put together a good game to drub Paris, 43-9.
    The Sulphur Springs defense played well the entire night. The nine points are the fewest allowed in a game this year.
    The Wildcat offense had 459 yards from a balanced attack. Sulphur Springs showed off their potential for firepower scoring 28 points in one seven minute span of the third period vs. Paris.
    Quarterback Larry Pryor is coming off a good game. For the year, Pryor has completed 67-of-108 (62 percent) for 683 yards, five touchdowns, three interceptions.
