Trinity sets sights on hot WCCA

Trinity Episcopal head football coach David King may have picked the wrong time to be playing Wilkinson County Christian Academy.

After losing five of its first six games, the Rams lost to Centreville 20-13, played Brookhaven to the final buzzer and beat Silliman last week.

Kickoff at Trinity is 7:30 p.m.

&uot;Coach (Tim) Nickens has done a real good job,&uot; King said. &uot;They have a real good running back in (Stephens) McVea and they are huge up front. We are going to be outmanned, but we are used to that.&uot;

King will be without sophomore back Chad Ridley tonight.

The Saints are 4-5 overall and 2-4 in District 6-A. WCCA&160;is 2-7 overall and 0-4 in 4-AA.

Trinity’s playoff chances are very slim, but the Saints must beat WCCA&160;to still have a chance.

&uot;A lot of things have to happen,&uot; King said.

But the Saints have enough incentive in the fact tonight’s game is probably the final one of the season.&uot;

&uot;I&160;want our seniors, above anything else, to go out with a non-losing season,&uot; King said. &uot;They’ve been through everything you can imagine. They have been warriors.&uot;

King said the Saints will play wide open in their final contest.

&uot;We understand we are underdogs and we’re just going to let it all go,&uot; he said. &uot;We’re going to be exciting. I’ve never had a bunch like this bunch and they have been a joy to coach.&uot;
