Athens’ 69-26 blowout victory against River Valley last week was the epitome of the Bulldogs’ performances against Tri-Valley Conference opponents, as they clinched a share of the TVC-Ohio crown. 

This week, they look to clinch the TVC-Ohio title outright with a win against one its biggest rivals in Nelsonville-York. 

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. on Friday at R. Basil Rutter Field.
