Sulphur Springs kept the playoff train rolling down the tracks with a 66-42 win Friday over Denison.

    The Wildcats now advance to meet Whitehouse Friday, Nov. 22 at Forney in the Class 4A, Div. II playoffs.
    The 66 points scored in the win over the Jackets was the second highest point total in postseason play since the 69-49 win in 2008 in the state championship game against Dayton.
    What’s remarkable is the 66 points on Denison were scored in just three quarters. The Wildcats averaged 9.5 yards per play for the game.
    “It was a great win. Anytime you beat a playoff opponent that is a quality win,” said Matt Young, Sulphur Springs offensive coordinator. “These kids played with great enthusiasm and executed the plan.  I am very happy for them. The offensive line of Landon Watkins, Jess Jenkins, John McLarry, Brady Carrell, Spencer Bramlett and Isaac Perez did a great job of handling numerous looks and blitzes giving Larry Pryor time to throw and Willy Ivery, along with Pryor, room to run.  As always, we as coaches find corrections, details that need to be addressed.”
    The coach added, “But overall, we are pleased with their effort and blessed to be playing again this week.
On the perimeter, Isaiah Lacy and Alex Burney were explosive catching the ball while Dillon Carpenter, C.J. Stephens and Mitchell DeYong contributed in other ways for the offense.”
    The game with Whitehouse will be a rematch of the Sept. 13 homecoming game. Whitehouse took that win 61-22 at Gerald Prim Stadium.
    Both teams feature high-powered offenses. Whitehouse has scored 610 points in 11 games, averaging 571.5 yards per game.
    Sulphur Springs is scoring 45 points per game and also averaging more than 505 yards per outing on offense.
