The Long Beach Bearcats would probably like nothing better than to use Friday's game at A.L. May Memorial Stadium to get themselves into the win column.
It's been a tough road for the 0-5 school from the coast.
Long Beach has been outscored by an average of 47-7 and has not scored more than 14 points in any game.
The team averages just 124 yards of offense per game.
George County, who the Tomcats held to just a field goal last week, put up 43 points against Long Beach two weeks ago.
Not that Coach Adam Stone and his charges will be looking past Friday night's contest.
"That's the last thing we need right now, to take anybody for granted," he said. "We've practiced harder this week than we probably have all year.
"We have to go to work and fix things we haven't done well."
A win would put Stone atop the Region 4-5A standings along with either Pascagoula or Picayune.
They are the only other undefeated teams in the region and they meet one another in Pascagoula Friday.
The Tomcats could find themselves just one win away from a playoff berth with a victory over the Bearcats.
