Waterford and Trimble Gear Up for Heated Meeting< < Back to
In 2016, the Waterford Wildcats took down the Trimble Tomcats on the road in a game that would ultimately decide the TVC-Hocking Championship. It may be a new year but the story is the same; the Wildcats and Tomcats will battle for the top spot in the TVC-Hocking.
Both teams enter with an identical record of 2-1. Trimble dropped its first game to rival Nelsonville York 21-0, but has since blown away its competition, outscoring them 95-10. Trimble looks to continue its dominance while Waterford looks to put its week three loss to Fort Frye behind them.
The Tomcats are led by quarterback Cameron Kittle and running back Max Hooper. Kittle, who took up the starting role after original Tomcat starting quarterback Gary Brooks was injured, has really started to settle in his starting position.
If the Tomcats are to move the ball on the stingy Wildcat defensive, they will need a balanced attack involving their two most dangerous offensive weapons.
Waterford comes into this game with a very explosive offensive, running back Braden Bellville has been an unstoppable force racking up 173 yards and two touchdowns in his last game.
Quarterback Peyten Stephens will also be a threat the Tomcats need to be aware of. Stephens has shown ability to hurt defenses through the air and with his legs.
The Tomcats and the Wildcats both have the offensives to produce a high scoring shootout but their defenses are no pushover either. Both squads can shut down explosive offenses and creates turnovers. Friday night’s matchup will be decided on who can capitalize on momentum.
Both teams know that the stakes are high in this game. Despite being a week four matchup, this game could decide who will be the champs of the TVC-Hocking.
The Tomcats want revenge. The Wildcats want to repeat. It’s going to be a good one.
