PRCC vs. East Central

POPLARVILLE, MS (WDAM) - PRCC loses last game of the season 20-3 against East Central. The Wildcats (2-7 overall, 1-5 in the South Division) hoped to end on a positive note against the 16th-ranked Warriors (7-2 overall), who come in with their playoff hopes still very much alive.

The Wildcat Defense held off the Warrior attack for most of the game, but a couple of breakout plays put East Central on the board.  East Central scored on a 51-yd touchdown pass from Quarterback Jesse Hosket to Henri Murphy, extra point makes it 7-0 with 3:29 left on the clock in the first quarter.

Wildcats respond late in the second quarter with a 22-yd field goal. East Central 7, PRCC 3 with 6:24 left in the half and that is where the points stopped for PRCC.

"Any time you have your last game at home, you want to win that," said PRCC coach William Jones. "I don't think we've showed as well at home as we need to. You've got to defend your home ground, and we haven't done that."
