In a make-or-break two-week stretch of the prep football season, Meridian High School couldn't have asked for better results.
The No. 4 Wildcats bested the only two District 3-5A teams to defeat them in the regular season in 2003, picking up wins over Picayune on Oct. 8 and Oak Grove on Friday.
With the wins over Picayune and Oak Grove, the Wildcats share the league's driver's seat with Northwest Rankin.
Meridian High is 6-0-1 overall and 4-0 in District 3-5A. Northwest Rankin also sports a 4-0 district mark, and the Cougars have a 7-1 overall record.
Before the Wildcats can start thinking about winning their first state title since 1990, Meridian High will need to finish out the season strong.
Though Meridian High's next two opponents, Brandon and Hancock, have a combined record of 4-12, Spencer said the team will have no troubles focusing no the next two games.
This week marks the final time the Wildcats will go on the road to face an opponent during the regular season. Meridian High travels to play Brandon at 7 p.m. Friday.
Meridian High has posted a 3-0-1 record on the road, and the Wildcats have outscored opponents 163-9 when playing away from Ray Stadium.
The Wildcats finish the season at home with games against Hancock on Oct. 29 and Northwest Rankin on Nov. 5.
