Winder-Barrow got its three-game, nine-day stretch off to a resounding start Thursday, Nov. 5, scoring early and often and dismantling Salem 50-6 in a non-region contest at W. Clair Harris Stadium.

The Bulldoggs will be back in action Monday, Nov. 9, when they visit Central Gwinnett at 7:30 p.m. for a GHSA Region 8-AAAAAA battle. That game is being made up from an Oct. 30 postponement due to COVID-19 issues with Central Gwinnett. The Bulldoggs will then travel to Buford for another region game on Friday, Nov. 13.
