Game day Friday (September 21) has turned into game day Thursday (September 20) after concerns with stormy weather expected Friday, through the weekend and even on Monday. The Wildcats will be playing at Royse City for a big district game Thursday. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. It’s the second district game for the Wildcats and the first for the Bulldogs who had a bye last week.
The Wildcats are 2-0 for the season and 1-0 in district play after defeating Terrell at home last week. The Wildcats won a non-district game against Frisco Wakeladn in week one and their week two game with Lovejoy was canceled by weather. Royse City is 1-1. In week one they lost to Frisco Centennial, 27-6. The Bulldogs bounced back in week two with a 32-0 win over Garland. Since 1956, the Wildcats lead the series against the Bulldogs, 2 games to zero. When both teams were district foes, the Wildcats won a home and road game against Royse City in 2010 and 2011. Royse City’s coach is David Petroff in his sixth year. The Wildcats coach is Greg Owens in his thirteenth year.
KSST Radio will have Wildcats’ football live at Royse Thursday. The game will also be videotaped for replay later on Channel 18 on Suddenlink Cable.
