The Wildcats lost to the Greenville Lions on Friday, 47-27. The loss versus the Lions eliminated the Wildcats from playoff contention.

Wildcats football offensive coordinator Matt Young said that his team did not do enough to get the victory last Friday, but noted that defense got after them.

Overall, Coach Young believes that Friday’s loss to Greenville was the best offensive output he had seen from the team in two years. The coach said that the team’s efficiency was just south of 50 percent, something the team aspires for each and every week in a game.

Coach Young also said that the team had 7 explosive plays, with 2 plays falling just short of the “explosive” moniker.

The Wildcats offensive coordinator said his team ran the ball well, thanks in large part due to QB Kaden Wallace, who had in excess of 100 yards on the ground. Coach Young also noted the Wildcats’ ability last Friday to make key completions that allowed the team to continue driving the ball down the field.

While the offensive output is all well and good, Coach Young said, it still was not enough to emerge last Friday victorious against a good opponent in a playoff-type setting.

Coach Young said he loves how his kids and squad are improving, claiming the team is stacking good days upon good days, and loves the fight his team has shown in recent weeks.

The team will have to keep fighting if they hope to get back in the win column this week against the Crandall Pirates, who both OC and DC for the Wildcats claim are composed of really talented kids. Coach Young said that Crandall reminds him of Lovejoy — undersized, relative to the other monster offensive lines the Wildcats have faced thus far, but relentless, all the same.

The Wildcats will have their hands full as this Friday Sulphur Springs (1-2 zone, 1-4 overall) travels to Crandall (1-2 zone, 3-3 overall) to take on the Pirates at 7:30 P.M. 

Last Friday Crandall played hard but lost to Royse City, 45-22. Both teams come Friday will be fighting for their second win in “Zone” play.

This Friday’s match-up between the two teams will be the third straight zone game as the Wildcats will be looking to get back in the win column.
