While the 77-65 win over Corsicana was a lot of fun, it still was tough on the nerves.
The Wildcats got to show what they can do on offense when it all comes together. The 77 points scored was a new one-game record.
Willy Ivery continued his mastery of the Tigers. He now has nine touchdowns against Corsicana in the last two meetings. For the game, Ivery had 33 carries for 205 yards.
Quarterback Larry Pryor completed 72 percent of his passes, throwing to seven different receivers as he rolled up 421 yards. Alex Burney caught eight passes for 106 yards and two scores to lead the pack. Isaiah Lacy snagged three for 100 yards. Lacy’s 83-yard early in the game ignited the offense.
Pryor was a force on the ground as well, rushing for 151 yards on 22 attempts.
“It was a great win, the guys showed resiliency and confidence in each other,” said Matt Young, Sulphur Springs offensive coordinator. “The receivers on the outside had a great night. Mitchell DeYong, C.J. Stephens, Ben Brooks, Lacy and Parker Heath were doing a great job getting their DBs on the ground leading to some big runs. Jess Jenkins also had a powerful night inside. Also we were pleased with the versatility Dillon Carpenter and Burney provide us.”
Young added, “Overall it was great to get a win going into the bye week. We were still sloppy at times with six fumbles but we made plays, as a team, when it counted. Now we go back to work on the details in preparation for a tough Mount Pleasant team.”
Mount Pleasant and Sulphur Springs both enter their Oct. 10 meeting with 3-2 pre-district records. The Wildcats are averaging 39.2 per game on offense. Mount Pleasant is scoring 37 points a contest.
Last year the game was played in Mount Pleasant with the Wildcats winning a 71-65 scoring battle.
