Both teams are at a cross­roads in mid- Septem­ber and look­ing for pos­i­tive gains af­ter go­ing through their own ups and downs thus far.

Just last week, the Lady Bull­dogs picked up a much needed 2-1 win and gained some trac­tion on the road at Cen­tral Car­roll, but were un­able to hold onto that mo­men­tum with a 2-0 loss to Pick­ens County.

De­spite that, it’s the im­prove­ment that coach Elisa Prewett hoped to see out of the team go­ing into last week’s matches.

It’s a start, and one that af­ter Thurs­day’s matchup Prewett and the Lady Bull- dogs hope to hold onto.

They’ve got a chance to pick up a few more wins as the sea­son winds down be­fore Septem­ber hits with trips ahead to Chapel Hill for a round robin with the Lady Pan­thers and Cen­tral again on Sept. 19 fol­low­ing a day host­ing Sandy Creek and LaGrange on Tues­day af­ter press time.

They also play in the Car­rolton tour­na­ment on Sept. 23, and fin­ish off the sea­son later in the month against Troup County and Ar­muchee.

Mean­while, Rock­mart has Pep­perell and Model com­ing up for Se­nior night on Sept. 19, fol­lowed by a trip to Her­itage to play the Lady Gen­er­als and Coahulla Creek on Sept. 21. The Lady Jack­ets fin­ish the reg­u­lar sea­son with matchups on the road against Coosa an d Lake­view- Fort Oglethorpe on Sept. 26.

In re­cent days, Rock­mart dropped games against Ar­muchee and Gor­don Cen­tral, and had also played against Wood­land and North Pauld­ing.

They were ex­pected to travel to play Chat­tooga and Dade County on Tues­day, pend­ing the weather fore­cast.
