Sulphur Springs had an improved defensive effort Friday as the Wildcats took a 65-38 home district win over Hallsville.
The win put the Wildcats at 4-3 overall, 2-1 in 14-4A play.
The Wildcat defense forced four punts and held the Bobcats on downs. Hallsville averaged 5.6 yards per play, compared to 12.7 for Sulphur Springs.
“I thought our kids played a pretty good game over all. We had a lull in the third quarter but got over it and began to get back on track,” said Triston Abron, Sulphur Springs defensive coordinator, “We did limit the number of big plays that we gave up. We ran to the ball very well and tackled a little better, but we still need to improve in that area. The kids did a great job of executing the game plan, and adjusting to the wrinkles that Hallsville brought in this year.”
Top tackler for the Wildcats was Zach Spigner with 10, closely followed by Dedric Smith with 9. Barry Stribling had 7 tackles. Turning in six tackles each were Garret Hood and Dekeistan Mosley. Mosley also had a sack as did Bryton Wood. Derrick Weeks and Larry Pryor had tackles for losses.
Brennan Brock had an interception and two tackles. Jaylon Dugan caused a fumble. Weeks had a fumble recovery.
The Wildcats had 20 players involved on defense.
This week the Wildcats face Pine Tree. The Pirates (3-5, 0-3) have the No. 2 offense in the district.
