All four Weakley County high school football teams have a shot at revenge and a chance to get ahead in their district races when Week 2 of the football season gets under way on Friday night.
The Westview Chargers (1-1) will tangle with the rival Milan Bulldogs (2-0) at Graham Stadium. Milan gave Westview its only District 13-2A loss in 2009 in what has been a very close series. Eight of the last 12 meetings were decided by a touchdown or less. Milan, coming off an easy win over Huntingdon, hasn’t lost a regular-season game since the current seniors were freshmen, a string of 31 consecutive victories.
The Dresden Lions (2-0) will travel to McKenzie to take on the Rebels (1-1) in District 13-A play. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. Both teams are coming off thrilling wins. The Lions held off Peabody for a 13-7 win, while McKenzie upset Westview, 15-13. The Rebs won their 2009 meeting, 43-26.
Also in District 13-A, the host  Gleason Bulldogs (1-0) will try to avenge last season’s 24-22 loss to West Carroll. Gleason dominated after halftime to top Fulton City, 42-7, in their season debut last week, while the War Eagles (0-1) fell to South Fulton, 25-8.
The Greenfield Yellowjackets (0-1) will visit South Fulton to take on the Red Devils (1-0) in District 14-A play. With an open date, G’field has had an extra week to work out the kinks after a 34-7 loss to Dresden in Week 0. The Jackets want revenge for a 12-6 loss to SF in 2009.
