It is Week 3 of the 2014 season and the Williamstown Yellow Jackets are looking to keep their undefeated season alive. Williamstown (2-0) travels to Marietta (1-1) Friday night to take on the Tigers, one of the Yellow Jackets’ oldest rivals, as the matchup dates back to the 1930s.

Over the last few years, the Athens Bulldogs and Warren Warriors have become familiar foes on the hardwood, meeting in the playoffs in the last two seasons. Both playoff contests resulted in an onslaught of offense by Warren to lift the Warriors in both matchups.
