Trimble On The Cusp Of Team Record< < Back to
Senior night is finally here for Trimble (9-0, 7-0) as the Tomcats head into their final regular season match-up with a game against Federal Hocking (2-7, 2-5 TVC-Hocking). The weather forecast calls for rain in the afternoon and evening, which could make the regular season finale a wet and muddy one.
Nevertheless, head coach Phil Faires can maintained that although the Tomcats have sealed a spot for themselves in the playoffs, they will not letting up in their final regular season contest, rain or shine.
“It’s been a great week of practice, and the boys are really pumped up for senior night on Friday,” Faires said. “With Jenkins, Downs, and Losey just getting better and better, the Lancers are going to have a tough time stopping our offense,”
Trimble averages approximately 50 points per contest, as many as the defense has allowed all season, there is more to this tenacious Trimble offense than meets the eye. The offense is five points away from breaking a 34-year old school record of 452 points in a season.
“One touchdown will break that record and that will give the team some fire going into playoffs,” Faires said.
On the other side of the ball, Federal Hocking rolls into the match-up the winners of two straight. At the beginning of the 2014 regular season, newly appointed head coach Craig Moore said that the main goal of this season was to “surprise people.”
Now 10 weeks later, after dropping its first eight games, this is Federal Hocking’s last and biggest chance to surprise fans. Win or lose, they’re looking to give the undefeated Tomcats a game worthy of ending the season.
Kick-off is scheduled at 7:30 from Glouster.
