Alexander’s defense was suffocating and the offense was led by Jordan Moseley with 16 points and Mason Chapman with 15. Alexander is now 2-0 on the season and the Spartans will battle Vinton County on Friday. Our next Athens County Game of the week will feature Athens at Meigs on Friday night on Power 105 and 970 WATH.
