Athens Football: Athens looks for second straight win in matchup against Wellston on Friday

Athens’ strong offense and key forced turnovers led it to a 49–35 win last week against Meigs. The Bulldogs moved to 2–5 on the season with two of their three remaining games being on the road.

On Friday, Athens will travel for a key matchup against Wellston. The game provides an opportunity for Athens to make some noise and potentially move up in the standings in the Tri-Valley Conference-Ohio.

This is an important game for Athens as it looks to finish the regular season strong. It is key for the Bulldogs to keep playing complementary football with their offense passing the ball down the field and their defense forcing key turnovers.
