The Wildcats’ varsity 7 on 7 football team had their season end last Friday (June 21) with a one point loss. At their final state qualifier in Rowlett last Friday, basically the Wildcats needed pool wins over Lindale and Midland Lee to give themselves a chance of advance to state. Things looked iffy early against Lindale. The Eagles led the Wildcats 20-7 at the half. The Wildcats caught on fire in the second half, did not allow Lindale any points and scored all four times they had the ball to take a 33-20 win. Next the Wildcats had a game against Rockwall Heath that had no bearing on the Wildcats state qualifying chances. Rockwall Heath had already qualified for state and could not advance out of pool play Friday. The Wildcats trailed the Hawks, 26-20 at the half but scored on their first possession in the second half to go up, 27-26. The Hawks then went on a roll and won handily. That set up a must win game for the Wildcats against Midland Lee. Wildcats Quarterbacks Coach Mike Meador said the Wildcats did some really good stuff in the first half of that game. He said the game went back and forth. The Wildcats led for most of the game. Coach Meador said Lee scored a late touchdown and trailed by only one point. He said Lee went for two and made it to win, 42-41. Coach Meador said the Wildcats competed extremely well Friday and did some great things. He said quarterback Kaden Wallace grew up a lot. He was especially pleased with how Wallace changed some plays at the line of scrimmage and did that for good solid reasons. Coach Meador said Wallace threw lots of passes with good touch on them. He said the whole team got better during 7 on 7 season. Coach Meador said back Chock Sims had a great day Friday catching four touchdowns. He also praised receivers Chase Haney, Zack Tiemeyer and Bryson Lacy. Coach Meador said the Wildcats had to play with four good players missing Friday.
