Confident Wildcasts ready for Tulsa

April 12, 2006

Albany - There is not much a football team takes from a loss. 

But the South Georgia Wildcats are feeling upbeat heading into Saturday night's game at Tulsa.

The reason for the optimism is when the Wildcats rallied from a 28 point deficit in the second half to tie Tennessee Valley last Saturday.

The Vipers did hold on for the win but the fact that the Cats didn't fold their tents when they were down four touchdowns showed this young team they can play in the Arena 2 Football League.

And they will need that confidence against a Tulsa Talons team that has never had a losing season in their six years in the AF2.

Head coach Donnie Davis said "It definitely shows not only ourselves, but the fans and the league that we are team that definitley will compete and a team to be reckoned with."

Quarterback Brian Baker said "We have some positive things to build on coming back from that big of a deficit. But we definitely need to finish the game. We need to start better and we need to finish better."

The South Georgia Wildcats and Tulsa Talons meet for the first time in AF2 history Saturday night at 7:30pm at the Albany Civic Center.
