Commerce dropped another game in the 2008 season, this time to Lincoln County, 35-6, leaving the Tigers with a 1-3 record going into this Friday’s region game against undefeated Athens Academy.
Athens Academy has defeated Commerce in five of the last seven match-ups. The last time the Tigers defeated the Spartans was in 2005, 14-6. That is not to say Commerce has rolled over just yet. In the 2006 game, Commerce fell by one point 10-9 and by three points in 2007, 27-24.
Friday night offers Commerce a chance to jump back into the fire as the Tigers travel to Athens to face the Spartans at 7:30 p.m.
