DECATUR Just two weeks ago, the East Central Community College Warriors were in great shape to make the MACJC state football playoffs.
But after back-to-back losses to Jones and Southwest Mississippi, the Warriors now have to defeat Pearl River Thursday night or they will be left out of the post season altogether.
Kickoff in Decatur is set for 6:30 p.m.
Pearl River is 4-1 in the South Division and 7-1 overall after last Thursday's 40-34 victory at Northeast Mississippi. The Wildcats have the state's top scoring offense, averaging 33.9 points per game.
