Not everyone is as built for a matchup with Class 2A, Region 2 powerhouse Calhoun City quite like East Webster this year.
The Wolverines enter this week having played in three-straight brutal battles against Choctaw County, East Union and Union. They went into all three games an underdog and came out with a victory to move to 6-0 through a tough non-conference mark.
For the first time since 2015, East Webster has won the first six, but it’s no coincidence that the Wildcats of Calhoun City were the team that ended that streak four years ago as well. They’ve beaten the Wolverines the last 10 years starting with ending East Webster’s perfect season in the playoffs back in 2010.
