     Sulphur Springs got wins by both the girls and boys soccer teams in action Tuesday night under cold conditions.

Lady Cats 6,
Denison 0
    Sulphur Springs took an easy home win 6-0 over Denison girls soccer action.
    Lady Cats head coach Jesus DeLeon said, “The Lady Cats were clicking offensively on a cold dark evening at Prim. Esmeralda Sanchez opened up the scoring set up by great through ball from Kinzi Irving. The Lady Cats doubled the lead with a goal from Star Resendiz assisted by Grace Grafton. Resendiz then did some assisting of her own setting up Esmeralda Sanchez for her second of the night.”
    The coach continued, “Time in practice paid off as the Lady Cats were able to convert a set piece free kick from Madison Ramirez into a Myranda Pierce score. Madison Ramirez was just getting started as she followed up her assist with a goal of her own with an assist by Iris Gutierrez. Iris wasn't done as the clock expired helped Grace Grafton tally the last goal of the night for the Lady Cats.”
    The Lady Cats now 9-2-1, will host Greenville Friday. The junior varsity game starts at 5:30 p.m. varsity to follow at 7:15 p.m.

Wildcats 2,
 Athens 1
    ATHENS — The Sulphur Springs Wildcats took a 2-1 road win in their final non-district varsity soccer match of the season.
    The Wildcats got two first half goals and held the Hornets off the scoreboard.
    “We played well in the first half. We scored both goals in the first half to take a 2-0 lead. The first goal came about 10 minutes into the game on a corner kick from Brian DeLaRosa to Tanner Ramirez. Ramirez found the back of the net with a nice header going over everyone to get it. The second goal came with about 12 minutes left in the first half. Adrian Lopez showed some nice skill beating a defender and hitting a volley over the keeper into the top corner of the goal. We really played well the first half controlling the game and using good ball movement,” said Wildcats coach Andy Holt.
    The Hornets got on the scoreboard early in the second half to make it a 2-1 game.
    Holt said, “We did not allow that one goal to get us down, but instead we continued to play hard.”
    The Wildcats open district play Saturday in Greenville. The JV game is 11 a.m., varsity at 12:30 p.m.
