MATCHUP: The Wonders’ physicality and size will be a concern for the Bulldogs. Jay M. Robinson will have to be balanced defensively to slow down the Wonders’ offense. The Bulldogs are seeking to end an eight-game losing streak, while an A.L. Brown victory would help the team build momentum before facing its archrival, Concord, in the annual “Battle for the Bell” next week.
