The first half belonged to the home team as they zipped ahead 38-0 by intermission. The first score was an Owens to Clayton touchdown connection from 39-yard. The scoring play capped a 54-yard drive with Sulphur Springs had to open the game.

Paris got the ball and quickly got the message from Sulphur Springs that going would be tough. Wildcat defenders Shykem Middleton and Tevin Norris made impressive hits to force a punt.

The second time the Wildcats got the ball was another scoring drive. Sulphur Springs covered the 50 yards in quick order, taking just four plays. The scoring play was a Smith run for five yards up the middle

behind standout blocking. Owens threw a perfect high arching pass to Clayton for the two point conversion to make it a 14-0 lead with 5:50 left in the opening quarter.

Pressure from the Wildcats defense by Norris and Jaylon Perry held Paris to just two yards on three plays, forcing another punt.

This time Sulphur Springs scored - but it was on a one-play drive. Smith took the handoff and sliced through the middle of the defense untouched for a 64-yard scoring run. The extra point attempt failed, but with 3:50 left in the first half, the Wildcats held a commanding 20-0 lead. Paris again was held in check.

Paris got the ball back and again the Sulphur Springs defense was in high gear. Defenders Riley,Perry and several teammates combined for a sack. Paris went for the first down and failed and Sulphur Springs took over near midfield on downs.

Owens, now back at quarterback, went to the airways and found Ford wide open for a 52-yard scoring pass. The first quarter was almost over and Sulphur Springs had already rolled up a 32-0 lead.

Following a nice punt return by Clayton, the Wildcats were set up at the Paris 45 to start what would be their final scoring drive of the first half. A holding call negated one gain, but the Wildcats regrouped. The scoring play was a one yard rumble over the goal by Riley. The kick failed, but the game was not in question with Sulphur Springs holding a 38-0 lead.

The second half was time for all players to get in action. The only score of the final two quarters was a nice 45-yard dash by Frazier behind stellar blocks as he turned the corner on the sweep and took the toss to the house. Sulphur Springs won by the final of 44-0.
