By GRAHAM BROOKS / Staff Writer

PELL CITY–The Helena varsity football team hit the road on Friday, Nov. 3, and were out played falling 34-7 to Pell City as the Huskies were playing for pride in the final game of the regular season.

In what has ultimately been a disappointing season for the Huskies, Helena took on the playoff bound Pell City Panthers at Pete-Rich Alumni Stadium and came up short after falling behind 14-0 at the end of the first quarter.

The Huskies have attempted to play from behind for most of the season and against a solid team like Pell City, the Panthers took a 10-point lead into halftime and added another 14 points in the second half to cruise to the 34-7 win.

Helena finished the season with a 1-9 overall record and were outscored 294-124 on the year.

The Huskies have had a tough time adjusting at the 6A classification since moving up from 5A at the start of the 2016 football season.

In those two years, Helena has amassed a record of 4-16 and 3-9 in Class 6A Region 3.

The Huskies will attempt to bounce back stronger in 2018, as Helena will enter its fifth year overall as a program.
