George Walton (5-1 overall, 1-1 in 8-A Private) at Banks County (1-7 overall, 0-2 in 8-AA)
The Bulldogs won their first five games of the season. But it took a loss to top-ranked Prince Avenue last Friday to get them into the Class A private school rankings for the first time this year at No. 10.
GWA will have a chance to get back on the winning track and move up in the list with a COVID-19 replacement game.
Having lost a game to Union County in October because of the virus, GWA was able to find an open slot with Banks County. The non-league game will be a final tune-up before the Bulldogs round out their Region 8-A schedule.
With last week’s loss, GWA is left battling for second place in the league. It’ll be heavily favored to beat Loganville Christian in the regular season finale, setting up a showdown with Athens Academy next week for runner-up, which would ensure a first-round home game in the playoffs.
