After two consecutive home games, the Pike County Bulldogs hit the road today to take on the Wicksburg Panthers in Newton.

The Bulldogs are off to a flying start to their 2019 season. After falling in their jamboree to rival Charles Henderson, the Bulldogs have started the season 3-0, picking up wins against Alabama Christian, Houston Academy and Geneva.

Last Friday night, the Bulldogs won a tight 14-7 contest against Geneva. The Bulldogs jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the second half, but needed a late defensive stand to hold on to the win, their 13th straight region win.
