Woodward Academy is 0-5 on the season and has not been very close in any games. The Saints are just coming off a 44-6 win over rival Twin Cedars last week and look to cash in on a program that seems to always be in flux with its roster due to players coming in and leaving the program. Coach Pat Ferguson says that makes it more difficult to prepare for.
