In essence, Destiny Christian is playing with house money Friday night against Corn Bible. The Wildcats enter undefeated at 8-0 and feature one of eight-man’s biggest names in RB Arthur Mahoney.
It’s interesting what would have happened had Mahoney stayed with Moore. But as is, he’s with DC and has definitely made the most of it.
The Wildcats host Class C power Corn Bible on Friday. The Crusaders have steamrolled opponents this season. In all seven wins, they’ve scored at least 48 points and given up six points or fewer and have six shutouts. Corn Bible lost to Thackerville, 36-30, but there’s not shame in losing to the third-ranked team.
Win or lose, DC still has the Christian school playoffs to look forward to where the Wildcats will enter as the No. 1 seed and the host school.
“Our kids are really excited about Friday,” DC coach Rusty Stone said. “We’ve always seen Community Christian as the barometer of success for Christian teams against OSSAA teams. We beat them this year, so we want to see where we’d be against a great team like Corn Bible.”
He said the Crusaders will give him and the team a good point of reference to seeing where they’re at right now as a program.
You know me, I’ll be your omniscient guide to it all with the Friday Night Roundup. But if I wasn’t, hmm, DC and Corn Bible sure sounds like a fun time.
