The Cats have been led by Damarcus Godbolt in rushing yards and Trey Nettles in passing.

The 2015 matchup of these two teams left Bogue Chitto smarting from a 49-14 loss. Springfield has felt the sting from other teams this year, including losses of 47-6 and 42-0 in the past few weeks.

Bogue Chitto head coach Garreth Sartin is not so much focused on a win this week as on the attitude of his players once the season is done. But a win would certainly help with that attitude.

“We want a win, to end the season on a positive note,” said Sartin, “and start building good momentum toward next season.”

With rebuilding in mind, the Bobcats hope to gain strength and consistency, and power into next season as a force to be reckoned with.

Springfield hosts the Bogue Chitto Bobcats at 7 p.m.
