SULPHUR, OK – Friday night the 6-1 Sulphur Bulldogs take on the 5-1 Plainview Indians and both teams know that not only will this game have district implications, it will also go a long way in determining how far they go in the 2017 playoffs.
“The team that wins this district will definitely have the advantage with momentum, plus I think the way the brackets line up it is a big advantage to be the champion of this district without a doubt,” said Sulphur head coach Jim Dixon.
“This is a big rivalry for us so it is a big game all around, those are things that you know are implications of the game,” said Plainview head coach Joe Price.
“Our kids know that this is a big game for us and Plainview so we better be ready to play,” said Dixon.
“This is going to determine where we end of in playoffs and we know that every team wants to come out and beat Plainview, especially Sulphur it is a big rivalry week too, we have a target on our back and that just motivates us,” said Plainview senior quarterback Spencer Somerville.
Also motivating Plainview this week is the fact that Sulphur comes in having scored 50 plus points in each of their last three games, a streak the Indians are determined to end.
“It is going to be a physical hard fought game and I think the thing that we have got to do is go out there and match their physicality,” said Price
“It is going to be a physical hype game this Friday. We all know, the whole state knows that this is a big one,” said Somerville.
