Pickering is still winless on the season and with two games left on the schedule, its chances are running out.

The Eagles take on Oakdale Friday night on the road and will have to slow down its playmakers to earn the win.

Oakdale (2-6, 1-2) is coming off a 34-26 loss to Rosepine – the closest game the Eagles have played all season.

Warrior quarterback Evan Rodriguez went 11-for-22 for 163 yards, and running back Javon Hayward ran for 110 yards on 19 carries in the loss.

Oakdale is scoring just 15.6 points a game this year, while the defense gives up 27.1 points per contest through the first eight weeks.

Pickering (0-8, 0-3) leans on its defense, which can shut down the running game of the opposing team with their athletic linebackers and big defensive line.

The offense has struggled to put up points, averaging 6.9 points a game.

Quarterback DeShawn Jackson took over the job after an injury to Braden Lebato and has 228 passing yards in his first year on the football field.
