Butler of Augusta ended its 41-game losing streak, the seventh- longest skid in state history, while six other schools that were winless in 2009 won last week.
They were Monroe Area, Southeast Bulloch, North Cobb Christian (first victory in school history), Albany, Long County and West Hall.
Butler beat Westside of Augusta 42-0. Asked by the Augusta Chronicle if he expected a blowout, head coach Ashley Harden said, “Honestly? Yes. We don’t feel like there’s a team that outworks us.’’
