Whitehouse - familiar foe, old rival

Sulphur Springs and Whitehouse have met so many times, the mystery is gone.
    So says Sulphur Springs head coach Greg Owens.

    The teams have another big meeting set. The maroon Wildcats of Whitehouse clash with the blue and gold Wildcats from Sulphur Springs Friday in the Class 4A area playoffs in Forney.
    At stake this time around, a chance to advance in the playoffs and keep playing football.
    The loser goes home and the football season ends in a very abrupt manner.
    Whitehouse is favored in the game by 20 points. The maroon cats won 61-22 earlier this season as they spoiled homecoming at Gerald Prim Stadium for the  Sulphur Springs Wildcats.
    “It will come down to making plays, fundamental football,” Owens said. “We have an easy time preparing for Whitehouse. They do what they do and we do what we do It’s been like that for eight years.”
    Owens said, “We know them well, they are a rival. We have been involved in some good games with them in recent. This game Friday could be another shootout.”
    Sulphur Springs scored 66 points defeating Denison in the bi-district round.
    It took Whitehouse 50 points and an overtime period to get by Arlington Seguin.
    Both teams can put the ball in the end zone. This contest could come down turnovers or the weather.
    “Whitehouse is No. 3 for a reason, they are very good,” Owens said. “They are playing with a lot of confidence. They are better than when we met the first time. I KNOW we are better than the first game. We will need to play good fundamental football to win. It’s a second chance for us to beat a really good team which we consider our rival.”
