Week 4 preview: Wilmington at Cin. Christian Hill Academy
Wilmington hits the road Friday to take on the small school power of Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy.
The Hurricane and Eagles kick off Friday night at 7 p.m.
Both teams are looking for their first wins of the season.
Wilmington played well with Ross and Miami Trace before faltering late in both games.
The Hurricane didn’t get off to a good start last week against Mt. Healthy, but rallied to make it a game, 26-23.
“Right now we are our own worst enemy,” said WHS head coach Scott Killen.
Wilmington had the opportunity in each game to have a different result, but was unable to overcome the bump.
“We have to stop hurting ourselves with turnovers and interrupted assignments,” Killen said. “We continue to put ourselves in terrible positions.”
The Hurricanes head coach, despite the 0-3 start, does not throw in the towel on the 2021 season.
“There is still a lot of football to play and we must continue to learn and grow as a team,” he said.
While the Eagles are 0-3, they played a solid roster to start the season.
The Division V team lost to Division I Western Hills in the first game, then lost games to Madeira and unbeaten McNicholas.
“They are a young team but they are playing hard,” Killen said.
The Eagles haven’t missed the playoffs since 2009.
