With a short week of practice and a “homecoming win high,” the Trojans could only muster seven points on the road as they lost to Itawamba Community College, 41-7 last Thursday night. But with an upcoming homegame Saturday against a tough Holmes Community College team, MDCC Head Coach Jeff Tatum expects better play from his team.
Homecoming was sweet at Mississippi Delta Community College. The Trojans (2-4 overall, 2-2 conference) led the whole way and an exciting finish capped off a 20-13 conference win over Northeast Community College (3-3 overall, 2-2 conference) and gave MDCC a two-game winning streak.
