SS practices indoors for Mavs

E-mail Print PDF

    The decision to practice inside Monday was not really a difficult one.

    The outdoor football practice fields were standings in water with more rain falling and predicted for the first half of the week.
    But Sulphur Springs having football workouts early in the week in the multi-purpose building has become normal, despite the weather.
    Monday is usually an “installation day” as coach Greg Owens calls it as the team begins preparation for this week’s foe. This week,  the opponent is Marshall.
    “Great!” is how Owens described Monday’s workout. “Well heck yeah! We better get up and be ready - we are still playing for seeding and prepping for the playoff run!”
    The Wildcats are 6-3 on the year, but more importantly 3-1 in district.
    Sulphur Springs has strung together back-to-back district wins. The Wildcats whipped Hallsville two weeks ago 65-38 and last Friday defeated Pine Tree, 56-28.
    Marshall is 3-6 for the year, posting a 2-2 mark in district. The Mavs have also secured a playoff berth.
    Marshall was mashed 45-0 by Texas High. It was the first shutout of the year for the Mavs. Texas High has allowed only 89 points in nine games.
    For the year, Marshall has allowed 411 points, while scoring 210.
    The Mavs lost their first four games on the season. They fell 42-7 to Kilgore; then lost at home to Longview, 26-14; they were defeated 62-19 by Shreveport Parkway and lost 59-3 to Whitehouse.
    In district the Mavs have defeated Mount Pleasant and Pine Tree. The team has district losses to Texas High and Hallsville.
    Sulphur Springs hosts Marshall Friday at 7:30 p.m. for Senior Night at Gerald Prim Stadium.
