After a 20-12 beating by Lincoln County last Friday, the Commerce Tigers will open region play this Friday when the Athens Academy Spartans visit Tiger Stadium. Kickoff is at 8 p.m.
Coach Steve Savage’s Tigers could not protect a third-quarter lead last week as the Red Devils put the game away with a fourth-quarter touchdown.
“I thought we fought them pretty hard,“ said Savage.
Athens Academy will offer a challenge of its own, according to Savage, who noted that the Spartans have a talented quarterback who can put the ball on target down field.
