The Rangers look to win back-to-back games for the first time this season, as they take on Southeast Prep out of Houston in the Hall of Fame game 3 p.m. Saturday at R.E. St. John Memorial Stadium.

While Head Coach J.J. Eckert said it was a great win he still believes his team needs to be a lot more disciplined if they hope to keep winning.

“I think there was a lot of positives that came out of the game,” Eckert said. “But one thing that I thought was a glaring problem we’ve got to get fixed were the penalties”

KC and NEO combined for 27 penalties including 10 unsportsmanlike conduct penalties between the two teams.

While this week’s game against the Spartans does not count toward their conference record or playoff hopes, Eckert has his team treating it like it is.

“We have not had back-to-back wins in the 2013 season yet,” Eckert said. “ That’s the focal point. Let’s do whatever we have to do to get back-to-back wins so we have something to continue to build upon.”

The Rangers are 3-4 with a 3-2 conference record and are in third place in the Southwest Junior College Conference standings. The Spartans come into this game with a 0-7 record and are coming off an 80-0 loss to No. 14 Navarro College.

KC will play Tyler Junior College in the last game of the season at 3 p.m. Oct. 26 at Tyler Rose Stadium.
