Another big district 3A-4 matchup looms Friday night, as Sulphur welcomes Plainview to town in a game that will likely decide playoff scenarios for the two teams. Sulphur (4-4, 3-1) would clinch at least the third place spot with a win. Plainview (3-5, 2-2) could move into a tie with Sulphur if the Indians win, which would invoke the district points tie breaker and could see the Dogs end up as the fourth seed, depending on what happens in the last week of the season.

Every day, every week and every year, longtime Sulphur head coach Jim Dixon preaches one thing to his football team. “Never, never, never give up,” Dixon always says. Friday night, Dixon’s team didn’t and it saved their season. Sulphur (4-4, 3-1) scored two touchdowns with less than three minutes to play to win 30-21 over Madill in one of the most dramatic Bulldog victories in quite some time, clinching a playoff spot for the second straight year.
