For those in need of a little football news in late June, here is an early look at the Sulphur Springs Wildcats’ football schedule for this fall. Basically it is exactly the same as last year except home and visiting teams are reversed this year.
Once again the Wildcats will have only one scrimmage since they had spring football practice this past spring. The Wildcats will scrimmage Liberty-Eylau on Thursday, Aug. 22 at 7 p.m. at Liberty-Eylau in Texarkana.
The regular season opens the next week as the Wildcats have a home opener at Gerald Prim Stadium against Frisco Wakeland on Friday, Aug. 30 at 7:30 p.m. All the Wildcats’ games are on Friday nights at 7:30 p.m.
The following week, the Wildcats hit the road to play in Lucas at Lovejoy. Last year’s game scheduled for Prim Stadium was canceled due to stormy weather.
On Sept. 13, the Wildcats open district play at Terrell.
Homecoming for the Wildcats will be on Sept. 20 and the Royse City Bulldogs will be coming to the Prim.
The Wildcats have their open date this season on Sept. 27.
The Wildcats resume district play on Oct. 4 at Forney. The Ennis Lions come to Prim Stadium on Oct. 11. The Wildcats travel to Corsicana on Oct. 18. The Greenville Lions visit The Prim on Oct. 25. The Wildcats play at Kaufman on Nov. 1. The final regular season game is at Prim Stadium on Nov. 8 as North Forney provides the opposition on Senior Night.
Last season the Wildcats had an overall record of 6-4. That included a bi-district loss to Frisco at The Star in Frisco. The Wildcats had a district record of 5-3, good enough for the third place playoff spot. Varsity football workouts get underway on Aug. 12.
