Wildcats celebrate season-opening victory over Northeast

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.”

Wildcats ‘where we need to be’ two weeks before debut
