2016 District Opponent Review

- Russellville (6-1) – Russellville moved easily past Fulton County, 66-8.  The Panthers only had 296 total yards for the game.  No individual rusher for RHS had more than 67 yards or 3 rushing attempts.  As a team, Russellville averaged 16.7 yards per carry on their 14 rushing attempts and put 7 rushing TDs on the board.  The Panthers’ defense forced 5 turnovers (3 fumbles, 2 INTs) and scored 1 TD on a 60-yard fumble return.  They take on Fulton City next on October 16th after a bye-week this week.  

- Fulton City (1-6) – The Bulldogs head to Halls (TN) this week.  Halls has a record of 4-2 and they are in class AA.  Fulton City’s chances for another win are looking even slimmer with only 14 players dressing against the Rockets last week.

- Fulton County (0-6) – Beaten easily by Russellville, 66-8.
