Trojan football stays perfect with 49-13 win Friday over Decatur
Undefeated Muscle Shoals looked nearly unstoppable for the first six games of the season. That didn’t change when it traveled to Ogle Stadium to face Decatur on Friday night.
The Trojans (7-0, 3-0), ranked No. 2 in Class 6A, downed Decatur 49-13 to hand the Red Raiders their sixth loss in seven games. All of Muscle Shoals’ wins have been by double digits.
It is Muscle Shoals’ first 7-0 start since 2015. The Trojans have won 14 of their last 15 games, with the one loss coming to Pinson Valley in last year's second round playoff game.
