Wahama Tasked With Containing Jenkins, Snapping Trimble’s Streak

The Trimble Tomcats travel to Wahama on Friday in a game which has two very different meanings for each team.

The Tomcats (4-1, 4-0) come into the game riding a four-game win streak, fresh off of a statement win against Miller.  The 56-14 rout put Trimble in the TVC-Hocking driver’s seat, putting the Tomcats in control of their own destiny in chasing the Hocking crown.

Another win would take them one step closer.

However, Wahama (2-3, 1-3) comes into this game in a much different situation. Even after topping Federal Hocking 31-15, Wahama’s struggles have been aplenty this season.

The White Falcons have not been able to get themselves in a rhythm on either side of the football.  The defense is giving up 21 points per game, whereas the offense is scoring only 17 per contest.

A Wahama win would make a big statement of its own, but victories against the Tomcats have been difficult to come by lately. The Tomcats are riding a 27-game conference winning streak which dates back to 2012.

Wahama is actually the last conference foe to beat Trimble when the White Falcons beat the Tomcats 25-12 during week two of that season.

Back to the present, Wahama will be the next team tasked with containing Justice Jenkins, which most teams have failed to do. Jenkins accumulated 232 yards and four touchdowns during Trimble’s win over Miller.

Stopping Jenkins will require a Herculean effort, but it will be necessary in order to snap Trimble’s streak.
