Like North and South, Forsyth Central finished the first half of the season with a record of 2-3.
Central will kick off the second half of its season with a tough matchup in north Atlanta tonight, facing off with Marist.
The War Eagles have won four in a row and are undefeated in Region 6-AAAA.
Bulldogs’ coach Chris Bennett said the bye week was a positive for Central, who comes into tonight at 2-2 in region play.
“The week off was good. It allowed us to work on our fundamentals and it allowed a few dings and minor injuries to heal up,” Bennett said.
The Bulldogs will need to be healthy heading into a formidable second half schedule, with Marist, Chamblee and Tucker — all currently Top-10 teams — on deck.
“It is fair to say that our second half schedule is tough, but there aren’t any easy games in this region,” Bennett said.
The War Eagles have the potential to put big numbers on the board, having scored 38 points or more three times this season.
“Marist is Marist,” Bennett said. “They are not as athletic as some of the teams we have played, but they do what they do very well.”
