East Ridge rolls over Whitwell to open 2019
East Ridge scored twice on defense, enough to outscore Whitwell to open the 2019 high school football season on Wednesday, but they added a few on offense as well. The Pioneers beat the Tigers 38-8.
Because of a scheduling mix up, Whitwell will also have to play at Bledsoe County on Saturday. The Tigers booked two opening weekend games and their options were to forfeit or find a way to play both games.
