Athens Football: Athens travels to River Valley for penultimate game of regular season

Athens struggled to prevent scoring drives and gave up multiple turnovers in its game against Wellston last week. The two issues compounded and handed Athens its sixth loss of the season.

After six disappointing losses, Athens will attempt to earn its third win Friday when it travels to play River Valley.

The Bulldogs have to get their offense moving early to stand a chance. In all six of their losses, the Bulldogs have been outscored 106-76 before halftime. If the Bulldogs secure the ball and get moving downfield, they might be able to clinch a third win.

Opponent: River Valley
