The Sulphur Springs Middle School 8th grade teams traveled to Hallsville for their official season opener. The 8th grade teams worked hard and managed some passes and carry’s throughout the night.
First throw of the game from PJ Mollenhour was picked off by Hallsville for a turnover.
The Wildcats had posession of the ball once again and Max Patterson has the carry for the first down. Another hand off to Patterson for a run up the middle, good for another first down. A few snap issues with these Wildcats who are still learning leads to adjustments on the fly. The boys did well changing with the flow of the game and are tried hard to make it to the endzone.
The Bobcats continued to have a successful running game, leading to multiple first downs. Late in the fourth quarter Sulphur Springs had a turnover from a pass from the Bobcat quarterback. The ball was caught by number 37, Brett Rodriquez.
Quarterback Mollenhour had a successful throw and catch by 83 which brought the Wildcats closer to a first down. Another successful pass from Mollenhour to River Corley 15, resulted in a 25 yard catch, for a first down. Just 30 seconds left on the clock Wildcats throw for deep into the end zone, but fell short with a finger tip touch by Kaiden Conley right at the goal line. A missed snap resulted in a turnover for Hallsville, with 17 seconds left in the game.
The game ended with a Wildcat turnover caught at the Hallsville 10 with the buzzer making the stop. These young Wildcats have great potential and will be back on the field next week to face off against Mount Pleasant at home. You won’t want to miss that game.
