A pair of disastrous plays in the first half proved too much for Pearl River Community College to overcome against No. 5 Northwest Mississippi.
The Wildcats gave up scores on an interception and a blocked field-goal on the way to a 27-0 deficit that was too much to overcome in a 34-21 defeat at the hands of Rangers in junior college football action Thursday night at Dobie Holden Stadium.
PRCC evened its record at 1-1, while Northwest is 1-0 after its first completed game of the year.
For the first time in a long time, Dobie Holden Stadium felt like home for Pearl River Community College football.
The Wildcats snapped an 11-game, three-year losing streak in their home stadium Thursday night with a thrilling 27-21 victory over ninth-ranked Northeast Mississippi to open the 2017 season.
“The attitude of our kids is that we’re going to play until the clock says zero,” said Wildcat head coach Ted Egger. “We told our kids that we were going to win this football game, and I can’t be any prouder of them.”
The preparations are over, now the time has come to kick off the 2017 football season at Pearl River Community College.
For the second consecutive season, the Wildcats will debut a new head coach, as Ted Egger will lead the team onto the field at Dobie Holden Stadium for the first time against ninth-ranked Northeast.
Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday
Pearl River Community College staged a dress rehearsal for the 2017 football season under the lights Thursday at Dobie Holden Stadium, and first-year head coach Ted Egger liked most of what he saw.
With two weeks remaining before the opening kickoff of the 2017 football season, Pearl River Community College head coach Ted Egger says the Wildcats are, “right where we need to be.”
PRCC went through an approximately 90-minute scrimmage Thursday afternoon at Dobie Holden Stadium, working on all of phases of the game, and a variety of scenarios, in preparation for the season opener Aug. 31 at home against ninth-ranked Northeast Mississippi.
Eight sophomore members of the Pearl River Community College football team have signed scholarship offers to complete their playing careers at the next level.
The eight signees were part of a group of 14 December graduates from the PRCC varsity who earned their associate’s degrees and will enroll at their respective four-year colleges in January.
It was the same old story yet again for Pearl River Community College Saturday afternoon at Dobie Holden Stadium.
Once again, the Wildcats gave a great effort, but once again they could not put two quality halves of football together and once again they made too many little mistakes that led to a 31-17 homecoming defeat at the hands of Copiah-Lincoln.
Three football players for Pea
Another valiant effort by Pearl River Community College came up a little short Saturday afternoon as Mississippi Gulf Coast defeated the Wildcats 30-17 at A.L. May Stadium.
