The Pike County Bulldogs step out of region play to take on the 5A Carroll Eagles on Friday night.

The Bulldogs look to shake off their 0-3 start and pick up their first win of the season against the 2-2 Eagles.

The Bulldogs were on the doorstep of a comeback win in their season opener against Beulah two weeks ago. Since then, the Bulldogs have fallen against two of the better teams in Region 4 against Dadeville and Trinity.
