WOODVILLE — The Wilkinson County Christian Academy Rams hope to extend their four-game winning streak when they host the Prairie View Academy Spartans on Friday night.
The Rams come into Friday’s game after a 38-18 win over the Union Christian Academy Lions last Friday night. Andrew Sessions threw six completions for 305 yards with four touchdown passes. KeKe Anderson caught three passes for 148 yards and two touchdowns.
Randy Holloway, WCCA head coach, said Friday’s game is a revenge game from last season.

The Rams lost 60-26 to the Spartans in the first round of the 2019 Midsouth Association of Independent Schools Class 1A playoffs.
