The Red Boiling Springs High football team will play its first game since Aug. 4 when the Bulldogs host Pickett County for their homecoming game this Friday.

The Red Boiling Springs High School football squad will have a three-week layoff by the time the Bulldogs face Pickett County on Friday evening.

After forfeiting its Aug. 11 game with Clinton County (Kentucky) due to not having an adequate number of players to field a team, RBS was the victim of a scheduling issue last Friday night when the Bulldogs were slated to play at Hart County (Kentucky).

However, the game wasn't played as Hart County actually played Casey County on Friday night, suffering a 37-21 loss.

Therefore, Red Boiling Springs will carry a 0-7 record into its final two games, a homecoming contest against visiting Pickett County followed by a season-ending contest at Clay County on Nov. 1.

Pickett County enters the game with a 1-7 record. The Bobcats' lone win was 16-8 victory over visiting Oakdale in their season opener.

Pickett County rolled to a 48-19 win over the visiting Bulldogs last season.

Clay County (6-2) sits atop the region standings with a 3-0 mark in Region 4-1A.

Red Boiling Springs is looking to snap a 17-game losing streak. The Bulldogs' last on-field victory was a 14-6 win at RePublic on Oct. 13, 2017. However, RBS received a forfeit victory from Cannon County -- which used an ineligible player -- in last year's season opener.
