Head out the back Jack, make a new plan Stan, drop off the key Lee; then get on the bus Gus to East Carolina University to watch the Nighthawks and Panthers in action in the 3-A East Regionals…..

We need to have a battle of the buses, cars, trucks, vans, motorcylces, mopeds, bicycles, covered-wagons, horses and whatever means of transportation you have, to see how many people we can get down to Greenville in support of Dudley and Northern Guilford TONIGHT.

It’s time to step up, step out and get on board the train as it heads into Greenville with the last stop being the Williams Arena inside the Minges Coliseum on the East Carolina University campus.

The Nighthawks and Panthers need your support and it would be great to see 300-500 fans from each school or least 600 to 800-plus fans pulling for our two Guilford County schools.

Let’s get a crowd into that building as you cheer on in hopes of an All-Guilford County final with Northern versus Dudley on Saturday night.

Right now, TONIGHT is the trick. If both teams draw well this evening then with a Dudley-Northern matchup coming on Saturday night, I think the fans will be headed down to Greenville for certain.

But, we have to get Greensboro/Guilford County people into Greenville and into the Minges Coliseum TONIGHT night to combat the crowds that near-by schools Bertie and Kinston will be bringing in.

Our local teams need your support TONIGHT. Northern can’t fill up the Minges Coliseum, or can you??????(You say you can, then let’s do it Northern kids.) Will you be pulling for or against Dudley? I don’t care what you are doing, but I hope you would pull for the Panthers and they same can be said to Dudley, to pull for the Nighthawks. Can we all pull together for one night on this one, and then go back to the fan-wars on Monday?????

The most important thing is that we need Guilford County people and Nighthawk-Panther fans in those seats at ECU TONIGHT. For everybody that shows up and if we recognize them or they come by and let us know they are in the building at ECU, we will give them a FREE MENTION here on the web site and that’s got to be worth about a $1000.00…….

We will be looking for you TONIGHT in Greenville at ECU as you do your part to come out and support the Northern Guilford Nighthawks and the Dudley Panthers in their quest for the State 3-A Championship.

By bus, car, truck, van, train, plane, crane, motorcycle, bicycle, mo-ped, horse, covered wagon, or whatever, head down-east and check out the games TONIGHT. Start times:Northern at 7pm and Dudley at 8:30pm.

    I have to complain about the Kinston Dudley game. I have never saw some of the worst referees. Allowing the momentum to change and slowing down the tempo. I am upset I drove down there to witness Brandon Pennix get mauled out there by a guy he gives 2 inches up to. Brandon Pennix did not get a single call tonight. He out hustled those Kinston big men and the referees did not do him any justice.

    Kinston will not beat Northern Guilford.
