Wildcats confident heading into season finale at Co-Lin

It will be a confident group from Pearl River Community College that will make the trip to Wesson Saturday to battle Copiah-Lincoln in the Wildcats’ football season finale.

PRCC kept its hopes of a winning season intact last week with a stirring 31-27 homecoming upset of 15th-ranked Mississippi Gulf Coast. The Wildcats (4-4 overall, 3-2 division) battle the Wolves at 3 p.m. Saturday at Stone Stadium on the Co-Lin campus.

Wildcats host Gulf Coast for homecoming

The Wildcats (3-4 overall, 2-2 division) put up a game fight against 14th-ranked JCJC last week, falling 52-31. Gulf Coast (5-2, 3-1) is still very much in the MACJC playoff picture after rolling over Southwest last week 52-13.

PRCC evened its record at 2-2 overall and 1-1 in the division. Hinds remained undefeated at 3-0 and 2-0.

“They beat us in the second half,” said PRCC coach Ted Egger. “They didn’t do anything we didn’t expect. We just beat ourselves tonight.”
