Athens lost 46-20 at Logan last week. Prior to its Week 6 game, the Bulldogs were on a two-game win streak, and the season seemed to be turning around at a pivotal point.
The Bulldogs, once again, will attempt to regather and get back on the winning side, as they host Meigs in a critical Tri-Valley Conference game.
Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. this Friday at R Basil Rutter Field.
