County gridiron squads looking to bounce back (10/07/11)
Week 6 was not a good one for the three Marshall County gridiron squads as they all suffered disappointing region losses last Friday night, but Week 7 brings hope of a big bounce back opportunity for at least two of them. The Forrest Rockets (4-2, 1-1) lost a 16-14 heartbreaker to Eagleville in Chapel Hill, knocking them into second place in District 9A, but head coach Kyle Stacey's crew is still in contention in the 2A playoff format and can make amends this week with a very winnable road game at winless Middle Tennessee Christian School (0-6, 0-3).

Morton was informed on a phone call from Spring that his team would have to take a loss for a canceled game at Whitthorne earlier in the season when in fact, his squad was told to go home because of a scheduling conflict on that afternoon by the home team.
