Athens — The No. 10-ranked Trinity Valley Community College Cardinals wrapped up regular season play with a dominating win over Southeast Prep, 86-7, in the regular season finale at Bruce Field.

“I told our kids that it is your responsibility to go out there and execute the plays that we call,” TVCC coach Brad Smiley said. “It is my job to mange the clock and I think we did a good job of that. I was happy that the kids went out there and did what we asked them to do and executed and played well.”

With the win, the Cardinals finished at 7-2 overall and will host the Blinn Buccaneers in the opening round of the playoffs this week. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
