Tuesday, Mar. 28 is an another busy gameday for Sulphur Springs sports, as four teams are all in action.
Starting out on Tuesday is Lady Cats soccer, playing in their Area playoff game with Palestine.
Coach Adriana Brena and her squad are riding high following their 9-0 dismantling of Chapel Hill in the Bi-District match.
Seven scorers came up big last Thursday and hope to do the same Tuesday, Mar. 28 when they take on 16-4A runner-up Palestine.
The opposing Lady Cats also had a big game in their playoff opener, taking care of Carthage 3-0 in their Bi-District match-up.
Sulphur Springs will need an equally impressive game as their 9-0 win over Tyler’s Chapel Hill if they hope to move on to the third round of playoffs.
That game kicks off in Tyler on Tuesday at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Rose Stadium at 5:30 P.M.
Tuesday’s area game with Palestine will be broadcasted onto KSST 1230 AM.
Second team up on Tuesday is Lady Cats softball, playing in their second district game in as many days.
Catch David Carrillo’s squad played North Lamar on Monday, winning yet another 10-run rule district contest, 12-0.
Monday’s district match-up was originally scheduled to be played Friday, Mar. 24, but due to rain coming in Friday afternoon that game had to be postponed to Monday.
It made little difference for Sulphur Springs, as they got a no-hitter from Crimson Bryant, going a complete five innings while giving up no hits nor runs, but striking out 12 in the victory.
12 hits were recorded in the 12-0 shutout win, with each hitter crossing home plate.
With the win Monday, Coach Carrillo’s team remains undefeated, now 17-4 on the season (3-0 district). They have a quick turnaround as on Tuesday, Mar. 28 Lady Cats softball heads to Pleasant Grove for their final district game in round one of 15-4A play.
A win at PG for Sulphur Springs would make them the sole undefeated team in the district.
That game tees off in Texarkana Tuesday at 6 P.M.
Also on deck Tuesday is Wildcats baseball.
Coach Jerrod Hammock’s team looks for a reversal of fortunes, as five of their last six have all been losses for Sulphur Springs.
Most recently, on Saturday, the baseball team hosted North Lamar in a game that was originally scheduled to be played Friday. Just like with the Lady Cats, rain coming in Friday afternoon forced a postponement to Saturday.
Unfortunately for Sulphur Springs they fell at home to the Panthers 12-2. It’s the third 10-run rule district loss for the baseball team, now 1-3 through four district games.
In the first two contests, playing the front-runners for 15-4A, the Wildcats managed just one hit in each game.
They rebounded in a 6-4 win in Paris, but Saturday saw them hit twice, with the result being the same as the first two losses in a 10-run rule defeat at the hands of North Lamar.
They are now 5-7 on the year.
Sulphur Springs ends round one of district play Tuesday when they host Pittsburg (1-3, tied with the Wildcats for 4th).
That game tees off at Wildcat Park Tuesday at 7 P.M.
The last team up on Tuesday is Wildcats soccer, and like the Lady Cats they play Palestine in the Area round.
On Thursday Sulphur Springs took on Athens, suffocating the Hornets for a 2-0 win in Bi-District.
The other Wildcats are 16-4A champions, having won 13 of their 14 district games.
In their opening round playoff game, they easily took care of Sabine 6-2.
Coach Upton and his team will need an equally impressive game plan as the one they had Thursday in their win over Athens if they wish to move on to the Regional Quarterfinals held later this week.
The Area match-up between men’s soccer and Palestine is set to kick off in Tyler, also at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Rose Stadium, at 7:30 P.M.
Another Tuesday gameday brings another soccer playoff double-header, and just like last Thursday both soccer playoff contests for the soccer programs will be broadcasted onto KSST 1230 AM.
