GAME TIME: 3 PM
The Kennedale Wildcats (9-0, 4-0) are looking for a bit of history Saturday when they face off against Fort Worth Diamond Hill-Jarvis. History for the Wildcats is an undefeated regular season.
In 1996 Kennedale went 9-0-1 in regular season, finish at 11-1-1 under Tim Stout. Dan Yokeley?s 1985 team went 9-1 before finishing at 10-2. Current Coach Richard Barrett has had a couple of near misses with his first three teams going 9-1 in regular season, 2001-03. Again, in 2009, a Barrett coached team went 9-1 in regular season.
One game away from a first for Kennedale High School, the Wildcats can?t look pass what would in a normal season be a throwaway game.
Ironically, the Wildcats play a team that is going the opposite direction. Diamond Hill is 0-9 and has to play the #4 Wildcats with a nationally rated offense and a deadly defense.
The game will be played Saturday at Fort Worth Farrington Field in an afternoon game scheduled to start at 3 p.m. With temperature at kick-off a chilly 65 degrees, but still a good afternoon for football.
