The Spartans will travel to Chillicothe on Friday in search of their second win.
Alexander (1-6, 1-4 Tri-Valley Conference-Ohio) takes on Southeastern in what could be the final game of its season.
During its 19-14 loss to Belpre last week, Alexander got another strong performance from its defense, keeping the scoring to a minimum and forcing turnovers to give the Spartans a chance to win the game.
As the story has been for most of the season, the Spartan offense was unable to match the energy of the defense. And despite a late comeback attempt, they were unable to secure a win.
Heading into the Southeastern game, Alexander’s focus will continue to be on cleaning up the sloppy mistakes that put the team into improbable situations on second and third down. If the Spartans do that, they may snap their three-game losing streak.
