Mundy on East Forsyth crushing Grimsley last night, 35-7 and that East Forsyth defense was nothing short of amazing, especially up front, as the EF Eagles D-line lived in the Grimsley offensive backfield all night long…EF’s defensive front was so athletic they looked/played like DB’s in lineman’s bodies….J.P. Mundy from the News and Record on this one….Bright spot for Grimsley was RB LaQuan Nora with 119 yards on 18 carries and a TD for the Whirlies….

*****14-10 Eastern Alamance topped Northeast Guilford and the Rams’ QB Ta’rique Ridges was on his game…..
Miles Garrett from the Burlington Times-News on this game…..*****

NEG Rams senior quarterback Ta’rique Ridges had a huge game on the ground with 148 rushing yards. Northeast Guilford displayed a potent ground game with more than 15 first downs coming just on rushing attempts.

Ridges scored on a 29-yard run midway through the third quarter right after Eastern Alamance’ Tre Boseman’s early touchdown.

Northeast Guilford coach Earl Bates was disappointed at the game’s result but was proud of his team’s effort.

“My football team played their darn tail off,” he said. “No one gave them a chance down here. We expected to come down here and play this way, but we didn’t expect it to be taken away from us.”

*****Eastern Guilford 41-7 over Burlington Williams and the word on the EG Wildcats from Alex Hager at the Burlington Times-News…..*****
Eastern Guilford’s offense was in top form. The team combined for 280 rushing yards, led by 104 from Christian McMullen and 84 from quarterback Dominique Graves. Graves also threw for 73 yards, completing 10 of his 15 passes. He collected two touchdowns, one in the air and one on the ground.

McMullen scored two touchdowns himself, including an 18-yard carry right before halftime to make the score 31-0.

EG ‘Cat coach Doug Robertson on the win:
“It really starts with our defense,” said Eastern Guilford coach Doug Robertson. “We really controlled the line of scrimmage up front on defense, I think that was the big difference in this game. We played assignment football on defense, and that’s what it takes to stop (Williams running back Shemar) Thompson.”

  • SW Fan said,

    SW QB is Freshman Devin Flowers wearing #85 not Nasir Jordan. Doing a great job moving the chains when called upon. 2TD passes in the Parkland victory.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Good call SW Fan….We were thinking the same thing.

    Must have been a jersey exchange….
    (Usually don’t see a QB wearing #85.)

    We were on Flowers last year here at the site when he was playing for Coach Joey over at SWG Middle…

    He is the up-and-coming Cowboy QB….

  • Andy Durham said,

    Seems like there should be some talk about Coach Tinsley and Coach Boykin over at Ragsdale too…

    Coach Simmons has done a good job training those Whirlie receivers….

  • Mmmmm mmmm mmmm said,

    Jason Simmons, the fo hawk, the khakis, the smile.

  • Just Sayin said,

    The Game of the Week next week is Page at East Forsyth! So many big time players on the field and the big time rivalry between coaching staffs. Should be a battle of defenses.
