Union Grove Football against McDonough.jpg

Union Grove High hosts No. 6 Jones County this week.

Union Grove has gotten off to a good start in 2019 with back-to-back victories over McDonough High and Strong Rock Christian School.

Now the attention turns to Jones County High. The Jones County program will be a big test for the program to work with. The running game is always important for the Wolverines and should play a factor once more against Jones County this week.

Jones County made the playoffs last season but were eliminated by Bainbridge early. This season, Jones County comes to visit the Wolverines and is ranked No. 6 in Class AAAAA by the Georgia Sports Writers Association.

Union Grove’s ability to run the ball this season has helped them build big leads and control the clock. It was seen against McDonough High and then again against Strong Rock.

This is the first game of the region slate for both teams.
