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 (3-4) won their second straight game behind a huge night on both sides of the ball, racing out to a 29-0 lead by halftime and extending it to 43-0 through three quarters. Freshman receiver Tre Gaudlock had three receptions for 95 yards, including touchdown passes of 40 and 35 yards from Conyer Smith, and he scored on an 89-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter of the blowout.

J.C. Green and Caiden Carruth scored on touchdown runs of 8 and 3 yards, respectively, while Andrew Lewis returned a punt 52 yards for a score and Omarious Smith had a 30-yard pick-six.

Conyer Smith finished 6-of-13 for 108 yards and the two touchdowns. Green finished with 89 yards on 16 carries. 

The Seminoles (1-3) had their lone score late in the fourth quarter.

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.
