The Carolina Stallions return to the Rocky Mount Sports Complex on Saturday for the fourth game of their season.

The Stallions, playing in the Mason-Dixon Football League, will host the Norfolk Trojans (Va.) at 7 p.m. Carolina lost its first three games by a combined score of 18-136, though coach Michael Wright expects the young team to rebound.

“Although we are young and inexperienced, our guys are fierce competitors and have shown great integrity and character,” Wright said. “We must emphasize core basic fundamental skills over the next few games to turn the season around. It's time to get back to the basics and start having some fun out there. The rest will take care of itself."

The Stallions (0-3) are home each of the next two upcoming weekends, with an Aug. 18 game against visiting Arbutus Big Red.
