Wildcats Travel to Effingham TonightThe Salem Wildcats travel to Effingham tonight for a date with the Flaming Hearts.
Both teams enter the game with 1-3 records, and like Salem, Effingham's win happened last week in Apollo Conference play when the Hearts beat Charleston 26-13.
The Wildcats are also in the top half of the conference standings after last week's 32-15 win over the Paris Tigers. Paul Moskal rushed for 277 yards and three scores on 36 carries, and was voted the 618Football.com Week 4 Rushing Performance of the Week. Moskal received 369 votes, accounting
for 39% of the voting. That was enough to beat Highland's Gage Geiger, who received 343 (36%) votes.
The Wildcats are out to spoil the homecoming festivities for the Hearts, with kickoff from Effingham at 7pm. The Schmidt Ford of Salem Wildcat Pregame Show begins at 6:40 on 100.1 FM WJBD and WJBDRadio.com.
