   Two programs that have fallen on hard times in recent years meet in Greenwood tonight.
   The Pillow Academy Mustangs were 10-2 in 2010. Since that point, they have won just four games including a 1-3 start this season.
   On the other side, the Kirk Raiders are also 1-3 on the season. Kirk finished 3-8 last season. Dating back to 2009 and including this season, the Raiders are 14-34.
   So, in a game like this, something has got to give.
   “Both programs have struggled in the past several seasons,” KA Coach John McCrory said. “We both are having problems with numbers and that is never good for a program.”
