Mar. 8, 2007 - The Sulphur Springs subvarsity teams opened up play in the 14-team Sulphur Springs junior varsity tournament today at the high school and Coleman Fields.

The Sulphur Springs Gold team was scheduled to face Wills Point at 10 a.m., Sherman at 1 p.m., and Wylie at 5:30 p.m. today. The Wylie game did not count in pool play since SSHS is in Pool A, while Wylie is in Pool C.

For the SSHS blue team, they were scheduled to face Prairiland at 11:30 a.m., Commerce at 1 p.m., and Athens at 4 p.m. in pool play at the Coleman Field No. 3.

The games are scheduled for a 75-minute time limit except for the championship games in each division on Saturday.

The top two teams in each pool will advance to the Gold Bracket on Saturday, while the third and fourth place teams will play in the Silver Bracket.

In the event of a tie in pool play, the tie breaker will be decided in the following order: Won-Loss record, heads up competition, least number of runs given up, most runners to third base in all games, most runners to second base in all games and a coin flip.

The run rule will be in effect for all games with 15 runs after three innings and 10 runs after five in the championship games. They will use a 10-run rule after 2 1/2 or three innings in all pool games.
