Original story Sept. 18
With Loganville the lone winner last week, all other local football teams will be looking to improve their scores this week. Hopefully the weather also will be more cooperative.
With a bye week, Monroe Area will get a chance to regroup before taking on Madison County in Danielsville next week. The team is still finding its feet this season and has yet to win a game. Last week, the Hurricanes lost to North Cobb 41-12.
After losing to Spalding High on their turf 29-6 last week, Walnut Grove Warriors come home Friday to face Riverdale.
George Walton Academy travels to Lilburn to take on Providence Christian Academy. Hopefully the weather won’t keep the players off the field for much of the evening like it did last week. After the rain let up enough for the game to begin, GWA went down to Prince Avenue 28-7 in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Social Circle Redskins didn’t manage to log a win last week in their first game in the new Redskins Athletic Center, going down to Temple 21-0. However, they get another shot this week. Putnam County will be in town Friday to take on the Redskins.
After weather forced a cancellation of Loganville Christian’s game against Holy Spirit Prep last week, the Lions are back on the road this week. They travelled to Marietta Thursday to take on Dominion Christian. LCA logged the first win this week – beating Dominion Christian 27 to 20.
And with two wins under their belts in as many weeks, the Loganville Red Devils travel to Winder Friday to take on Winder Barrow High.
With fall just a few days off, more traditional football weather is finally expected to show up. The high is predicted to be the high 70s, dropping to the low 60s as the games finish up. There’s also not much of a chance of rain. After last week’s downpours, players and spectators alike will be glad to see that prediction hold up.
