|Huntington hosts WCCA|
It's still August, but Huntington School will be involved in a game Friday that has serious playoff implications as the Hounds host Wilkinson County Christian Academy at 7 p.m.
"I feel like this is a must-win situation," said Huntington coach Chad Harkins. "We have to find a way to win to stay in this thing. It's a long season and a lot can happen, but this is a very important game."
"It's definitely tough the way our schedule is set up," said WCCA head coach Sam Byrd, whose team hosts Glenbrook next week. "We've got the top two teams in the district back-to-back so our season is right here upon us and we have to come out firing on all cylinders and hopefully stay healthy."
Huntington fell to Class 2A Central Private 41-13 at Baker in its season-opener last week.
"We have to correct what we did wrong," Harkins said. "A lot of those mistakes were mental, so we can fix them. The good thing is that game was not a district game and has not playoff implications in the whole scheme of things."
Huntington defeated WCCA 38-0 last year after losing to Central Private and a week after WCCA defated ACCS, 30-0.
"Huntington always has a top team and Coach Harkins does a great job of getting them ready to play, especially after a loss," Byrd said. "They are a very talented group of young men and we are going to have to have an A-No. 1 effort on our part and play mistake-free football."
WCCA defeated Adams County Christian School 20-7 Friday in its season-opener.
Justin Davis had a 6-yard TD run for the Rams, while WCCA added a touchdown with a 15-yard TD pass from George Davis to Tip McKenzie.
McKenzie rushed for 89 yards on 17 carries.
"We are definitely trying to open our offense more this year," Byrd said. "We're trying to be more versatile. We depended a lot on the run last year. We want to try and be more balanced."
