Back to work for Wildcats

June 26, 2007

Albany - Vacation time is over for the South Georgia Wildcats.

The much needed bye week is over and it is time to get ready for the stretch drive to what the team hopes is not only a playoff berth but a top seed in the Af2 National  Conference.  

At 8-3, the Wildcats will most likely to earn the second seed in the conference by winning their final five games.

The feat will not be easy since three of those five games are on the road including trips to Florida where the South Divison title will likely be decided and to a 10-1 Tulsa team in the final week of the regular season.

The other road is this Saturday night against the Manchester Wolves.

The Wolves are a game under 500 and fighting for their playoff lives.

Defensive end Ed Wangler said "We tell ourselves if we are going to be in the playoffs, we have got to beat everybody we play and we have got to continue that streak."

Quarterback D. Bryant "We are definitely coming back re-energized. We know we have got five games to go. We are definitely able to run the table but we will see what happens."

The South Georgia Wildcats play at 7:00 Saturday night in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Next home game is July 14 against Texas.
