There are important football and volleyball contests on this game day Friday, Nov. 13.
A playoff spot is on the line as the Wildcats’ football team travels to Greenville to face the Lions.
It’s the third and last zone game for both teams. Both come in with 1-1 records in zone play with a victory over Corsicana and a loss to North Forney. The winner will be the zone’s #2 seed and will be in the playoffs. The team on the short end of the scoreboard will be the zone’s #3 team and will be out of the playoff picture.
The Wildcats come into tonight’s game with a 1-3 season record. Greenville is 3-2.
The Wildcats coach is Greg Owens in his 15th year at Sulphur Springs. The Greenville Coach is Darren Duke, in his fifth year. Coach Duke has coached at Greenville in the past on several occasions as the Defensive Coordinator for his mentor, Marvin Sedberry Senior. Duke replaced Sedberry, when he retired, in 2016.
In the district’s other zone, Crandall and Royse City meet to determine their zone’s #2 and #3 seeds. Ennis and North Forney seem destined to meet next week as number #1 seeds in their respective zones. That leaves Forney and Corsicana to get together next week as #4 seeds.
