Another game. Another shutout.

The first time was a 10-0 win on Feb. 6.
On the boys’ side, the tables were turned. The Warhawks beat the Bears for the second time. Feb. 6, Veterans won 6-3. Friday they edged out a 3-1 win. It was Houston County’s fifth out of its last six games. It fell to 5-7-2. Veterans, with its eighth win in its last nine games – the one was a 1-1 tie against Peach County – improved to 13-2-1.
