The Jackrabbits put on a show Thursday night as they dominate Sulphur Springs 47-28. The night started with outside linebacker Jason Craig intercepting the Wildcats to put an end to their opening drive. A few plays later, Kyle Bricker passes to William Wimberly for a 26 yard touchdown to strike first on the night. After the jackrabbit defense put together another stop, Kyle Bricker completes a 48 yard touchdown pass to Tyler Pruitt to increase the lead 14-0. Down by two scores, Sulphur Springs breaks loose for a score. A score that didn’t last long as Tyler Pruitt takes a reverse for 57 yard touchdown on the Rabbits next drive. After another quick score by the Wildcats, Ahmante Davis returned a kickoff for 83 yards to make the score 28-20 heading into the half.
To open up the second half the defense held true as Tyler Pruitt picked off Sulphur Springs for the second take-a-way of the day for the defense. The next drive for Forney was unsuccessful and a high snap lead to a safety for Sulphur Springs. A few plays later Trevor Vike came up big with a forced fumble to end another Wildcat drive. The next possession for the Jackrabbits ended with a punt that was fumbled and returned for a Sulphur Springs touchdown. After the defense forced the Wildcats into punting situation, Malachi Eafon would increase the Jackrabbit lead with a 58 yard touchdown run. He would later add another 5 yard touchdown. William Wimberly also contributed a 72 yard punt return for a score. On the ensuing drive for the Wildcats, Alonzo Avila forced a fumble which was recovered by Gabriel Brink to seal the game.
