The Thomson High School Bulldogs split weekend basketball games, as they lost to the Grovetown Warriors and won a non-region game against Jefferson County at home Saturday night.
The Bulldogs of head coach Michael Thomas have an overall record of 11-6.
Thomson was scheduled to have played host to the Richmond Academy Musketeers on Tuesday. The Bulldogs also will play host to Harlem on Friday night and Salem on Saturday night. A story about those games will be included in next week's edition.
In their 65-61 loss to Grovetown on Friday, the Bulldogs were outscored 23-18 in the third quarter, which spelled the difference in the outcome of the game. It marked another sub-region loss for Thomson.
