Athens Football: Athens travels to Marietta in search of first win

After its 34-0 loss to Gallia Academy last Friday, Athens’ losing streak has increased to two games. It now sits at the bottom of the standings in the TVC-Ohio, and both losses have come without so much as a touchdown from Athens. 

Despite both of its losses being shutouts, Athens might be able to claim its first win of the season against Marietta.

The Tigers, like the Bulldogs, have lost their first two games of the season. If the Bulldogs can pull out a win Friday, they will have a bit of momentum before it faces Alexander on Sept. 10.
