Wildcats still have plenty to play for in 2nd half

June 1, 2005

Albany - The South Georgia Wildcats have reached the halfway point of the Arena 2 Football League season and their is good news and bad news.

 The bad news is that the Wildcats are 2-6.

The good news is that if they turn things around in the second half they will make the AF2 playoffs for a fourth straight year.

Six teams from each conference qualify for postseason play and right now the Wildcats are just a game behind Macon which occupies that sixth slot.

Wildcats coach Chris Siegfried says it is kind of hard to talk playoffs when your record is four games below .500 but it is something to shoot for in the second half of the season.

Chris Siegfried said "It is like beating a dead horse at this point and time talking about the playoffs but it is still very possible. We are not that far out of the playoff mix and again we just need to take care of ourselves."

Quarterback Bobby Pesavento said "The guys haven't gotten down because we know are still in the playoff hunt. And the teams that we have lost to in our division, we get the chance to redeem ourselves when we play them again."

The South Georgia Wildcats travel to Texas to play the Amarillo Dusters this Saturday night at eight o'clock.

The next home game is June 11th against the defending AF2 champion Florida Firecats.
