It has been an up and down season for the Trimble Tomcats and Waterford Wildcats.
Trimble started 0-2 but has since won two games both of which have been in the TVC-Hocking. Waterford has 3 conference wins on the season but has had two rough losses this season including a 61-8 blowout to Wahama last week. Needless to say, this is an important game for both of these teams.
Trimble has been playing with a lot of fire since narrowing escaping South Gallia in week three. The Tomcats unloaded on Miller 67-0 last week despite running only 37 plays. Trimble’s Coach Phil Faires wants to decrease the mistakes this week to have a chance against a hungry Waterford team.
“We have to limit the turnovers to start the South Gallia game our first possession we fumbled the ball away three times and we were lucky to get out of that game with a win,” Said Faires.
Waterford’s Coach Chad Ross has been preparing his team for Trimble by playing into their style.
“We’ve been trying to do a lot of hitting this week in practice. We know Trimble is always physical. And we’ve been really working on the aspect of being a physical football team,” said Ross.
Coach Ross also wants to limit the production out of Trimble’s running back Austin Keith who has been explosive for the Tomcats with back to back 100 yard rushing games.
“We got to stop Keith he’s really a nice runner, He runs the ball hard and he’s kind of an old school player with some speed,” said Ross.
Both teams want this game to increase their chances of making the playoffs and possibly win the TVC-Hocking.
