Wildcats Football is the main event on this game day Friday, Nov. 6.
The Wildcats will be playing the Corsicana Tigers at Gerald Prim Stadium with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. Tonight is Senior Night for the Wildcats. Twenty-three seniors will be recognized, along with seniors of other student groups.
This is the second week of the three week zone play. Both teams come in with 0-1 zone records. Corsicana lost to Greenville last week while the Wildcats came up short against North Forney. Corsicana is 2-4 for the season and the Wildcats are 0-3.
The Tigers have been hit with injuries and the coronavirus. Several Tigers’ ninth graders and JV players have been promoted to keep the varsity going. Corsicana’s Head Coach is Hal Wasson, in his second year there. The Wildcats Head Coach is Greg Owens in his 15th season at his alma mater.
The winner of tonight’s game will improve their playoff chances. There is still a slight path to the playoffs for the team that doesn’t win tonight, but it’s a slim one.
KSST Radio will have the game for you tonight, including streaming video and audio. The game will also be posted to YouTube and will also be videotaped for replay at a later date on Channel 18 on Suddenlink Cable.
