GWA Football

George Walton looks to rebound from last week’s loss to Prince Avenue on Friday night at Banks County.

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.
