Entering Friday night’s matchup with South Gallia, Trimble has to feel like they’re in the same position as last year.
Despite starting the year 1-1 instead of 0-2, the Tomcats are in the same boat after losing to Wahama in Week 2 for the second consecutive season.
Normally one conference loss doesn’t seem like a major deal, but when the loss comes against Wahama, a team that hasn’t lost a regular season game in two years, it hurts.
Trimble knows that must win from here on out to have any chance of overcoming the White Falcons and that starts on Friday when they take on South Gallia.
The Rebels enter at 0-2 after losing to Sciotoville and Southern the first two weeks of the regular season.
South Gallia was one of the top teams in the TVC-Hocking last year, a season in which they went 7-3 (6-2) and finished third in the conference right behind Trimble and Wahama. They have aspirations of turning around the shaky start to the season but must find a way to shut down Tomcats quarterback Konnor Standley on Friday.
Standley has been very effective through two games, passing for 135 yards while also rushing for 211 yards and three touchdowns.
He’s the impact player both teams are focused on and how he performs will determine the outcome of this game.
