ALBANY, GA (WALB) -- The South Georgia Wildcats are starting to peak at the right time in the season. The Cats have scored 120 points combined in their last two games, both easy wins against Daytona Beach and Florida.

The South Georgia defense is also standing strong, allowing an average of thirty points over the same span.

The best defense in the league only allows 35-a-game.

The Wildcats will need their best performance this week, as they travel west to face top-ranked Spokane.

The Cats are already in Washington, and held a light practice Friday to try and overcome any jet lag from the long trip.

South Georgia only has five games left in the regular season, and quarterback Andrico Hines says his team is turning it on when they need it most.

"That's the most important thing in arena, is peaking at the right time," says Hines. "Hopefully we can continue going upward, and get the win this week against the #1 team in the league."

Wide receiver Antwone Savage says, "We're starting to roll at the right time. There's no better time, after the bye week, with the rest of the season coming up. We got another bye week coming up in like two weeks. We go to Spokane, win that game, play hard the next week, then we got a bye, and we've gone undefeated in the month of June, so it'll be great for us."

The Wildcats and Shock kick off at 8pm Saturday in Spokane.
