Wildcats shoot for 4-0 start -

While not a regional contest, there's a BIG game looming Friday at Mt. Juliet's Elzie Patton Field as the re-energized Golden Bears entertain undefeated Gallatin.  Live radio coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. on WHIN FM-100.7 with kickoff at 7 p.m.

Mt. Juliet (1-1), fresh from a 24-7 win at Lebanon, took advantage of an open date and re-tooled its offensive attack -- installing a spread offense and ditching the Wing-T.

"Looking at the Stewarts Creek game (a 19-14 loss) we decided we had enough H-backs, tight ends and wide receivers to make the move," said Mt. Juliet head coach Trey Perry.

The Green Wave come to town for their first game away from Calvin Short Field a perfect 3-0 on the season after swamping Hillsboro 49-14
