The Winder-Barrow High School football team had hoped to get into the win column Friday night at Loganville, but the host Red Devils were looking for a first of their own.
LHS took a 28-14 win, the first of 2012 for the Red Devils, who now stands at 2-5 overall and 1-4 in Region 8-AAAAA. For WBHS, the first victory of 2012 will have to wait another week as the Bulldoggs are now 0-7 overall and 0-5 in region play. WBHS has not registered a win since the 2009 season.
“This was a great win for us because we were so close the past two weeks,” said LHS coach Eric Godree. “We’re still turning the ball over too much and that’s frustrating. But our kids handled it well, ran the ball well and threw the ball well. We’ll take a win any day of the week.”
