This week doing the countdown we will bring in Wolfman Jack and his brother Wolfman Jock to count them down for the last week of the regular season.
#1)Grimsley(9-1) Last week they got past East Forsyth on the way to Smith this Friday. Last regular-season game for the Whirlies David Moore, Zach Maynard, Jamaral Rease, Jack Shultz, Seth O’Dell, Micah Daub, Kelsey Stevens, Andrew Oakes, Stefan Shepherd, James Hinson Jr. and several others.
#2)TIE Northeast Guilford(8-2) and Ragsdale(8-2) NEG struggled against Rockingham County before scoring 15 points in the 4th quarter to pull it out on the road while Ragsdale had the week off. The Tigers don’t get some of the pub they deserve being way over in Jamestown and this week they get the chance to make this second spot stick closing out with Asheboro at home in Miller Stadium. NEG should have no trouble at home vs. Bartlett Yancey.
#4)Dudley(7-3) The Panthers put together one of the best defensive efforts I have seen in many years before falling in OT to Donald Britt and Western Alamance. This week Dudley visits Western Guilford, a much different Western, to be sure.
#5)Page(6-4) The Pirates are on a roll after the High Point Central victory on Monday and now they prepare to close out the regular hosting Northwest Guilford on Friday night at Marion Kirby Stadium with a chance to finish (5-0) in the Metro. Grimsley and Mount Tabor have held down the top spot in recent years and it’s Page’s time to rule the roost again.
#6)Southern Guilford(7-3) The Storm got blown away up at Reidsville on Monday and now they take to the road for a big Rival-Game at Eastern tomorrow night.
#7)Southeast Guilford(6-4) The Falcons went down in a downpour at SEG when Eastern Randolph took the MudBowl title in OT last week and now the Falcons go flying to Randleman to close out the regular season on Friday.
#8)Western Guilford(6-4) WG got the road work done with a victory up at BY on Monday and now the Hornets have a Dudley Panther team to deal with Friday at what some people are already calling Doug Henderson Stadium.(The Hornets Nest)
#9)Eastern Guilford(5-5) The Wildcats got whipped up at West Stokes 35-20 and now the fun begins when SG comes to Gibsonville on the anniversary of the Big Blaze that sent EG running for cover last November.
#10)High Point Central(4-6) Central lost to Page and now the Black Bison have one more chance at post-season glory when they go over to East Forsyth on Friday.
#11)Northwest Guilford(3-7) NWG leveled Smith which is par for the course but now they set their Viking sails for Page on Friday with one thing in mind, mess up the Pirates perfect Metro 4-A record. Zack Lewis and Will Newman, the respective QB’s, makes for a good matchup.
#12)High Point Andrews(3-6) Everybody else plays 11 games and HPA only gets 10. Linwood Jarrell, the HPA AD, needs to find somebody to follow Parkland the team that Andrews hosts this week. On Monday the Red Raiders topped SWG 18-14, nice work HPA.
#13)Southwest Guilford(3-7) The Cowboys lost to Andrews and now they finish up this week by hosting powerhouse Glenn.
#14)Northern Guilford JV’s(6-2) Still 6-2 by all accounts with last week’s game vs. Morehead, scheduled to be played at Southeast Guilford, rained out and now the Nighthawks are playing somebody this week at Patton High School over in Winston-Salem. Off of I-40 West at Exit 104 turn left and go a mile and the school is on the left. All according to the NGHS web site.
#15)Smith(0-10) Basketball season should have started August 20th. The Golden Eagles are winless and close out at home Friday against Grimsley.
