The Wildcats made mistakes and saw upstart Greenville come into Gerald Prim Stadium and take a 25-13 district win on a cool, rainy Friday night.

The Oct. 25 game featured a district matchup won by the visiting Lions as they scored on plays from scrimmage and on Sulphur Springs miscues.

The Wildcats fell to 1-8 overall, 1-5 in district and probably out of playoff contention.

Greenville went to 5-3 for the year, 4-2 in 8-5A action.

The Lions jumped out to quick 7-0 lead when Tyrecus Davis scored on a 60-yard interception return.

Sulphur Springs answered with a 6-yard scoring run by Caden Davis to tie the game following a Brandon Zavala point after kick.

Miles Denson scored on runs of 11 and 70-yards to pad the lead for the Lions.

With Wildcat quarterback Kaden Wallace out of action, all Sulphur Springs could muster on the scoreboard was

two Zavala field goals. Noe Ponce was called into action at quarterback seeing his first game play at the position this year.

Greenville's scoring ended when Tyrecus Davis scooped up an onside kick attempt and raced 50 yards to pay dirt.

The Lions scored the first victory over the Wildcats in several years and kept their playoff hopes alive.

Greenville takes on Forney on the road on Nov. 1.

The Wildcats play at Kaufman on Nov. 1 in their final road district game of the season.

 

Como-Pickton will take on district foe Rivercrest on Nov. 1.

 

Cumby will return to play Nov. 1 when they host Tioga in district action.
