The Lions welcomed the Red Raiders of Marion County to Wiley Hollingsworth Stadium seeking revenge from last year’s overtime loss along with hopes of forging ahead of the Raiders in the Region 6 standings. Hubbertville won the coin toss, electing to receive the opening kick with Gage Key advancing the ball from the 18-yard line to the Lions' 26-yard line. Ethan Nichols led the offense to the field, choosing to utilize the ground game to slowly advance the ball downfield. Runs by G. Key, Zach Hubbert and Tanner Upton pounded the ball deep into the Raiders’ red zone, leaving the Lions facing third down and goal from the two-yard line.
