Wildcats Travel to Green Wave Tonight
Mattoon is 3-2 overall and atop the Apollo with a 2-0 mark. The Green Wave doubled up Charleston 56-28 in their rivalry meeting last Friday night at Eastern Illinois University's O'Brien Field.
Salem, on the other hand, found it tough sledding last week at Effingham, losing 9-6. The Wildcats defense stepped up to keep the Hearts off the scoreboard after a field goal made the score 9-0 early in the second quarter. But the running game never found traction, and the Cats were forced to rely heavily on the left arm of sophomore Riley Martin, who threw 47 passes.
With Salem's homecoming looming next week, the Cats are out to play spoiler tonight at Mattoon's Gaines Field. The Schmidt Ford of Salem Wildcats Pregame show begins at 6:40 on 100.1 FM WJBD and WJBDRadio.com.
