News from Jerome Richard, at the Burlington Times-News, on last night’s Eastern Guilford at Grimsley game and EG coach Tony Aguilar will not back away from “manning up” for his role in the game, as the leader of the EG Wildcats/’Cats…

“Their quarterback was reading it, throwing it or keeping it,” Aguilar said. “He’s big and fast and you can’t simulate that in practice. Nora(Grimsley RB) is good.

He’s like a two-star and their nose guard(Travis Shaw) is a four.”

Aguilar, a first-year coach, admitted an early-game decision was impactful.

With the Wildcats (2-1) trailing 7-0 and facing fourth-and-1 at their own 42 on their first offensive series, Aguilar made a fateful call.

He sent EG RB Hezekia Newby up the middle where the junior tailback was stopped by Quentin Williamson. The Whirlies went on to score four consecutive touchdowns for a 34-7 halftime lead.

“Fourth-and-1 on the road, you gamble and go for it,” Aguilar said. “We didn’t make it and that set the tone for the rest of the game. We made a lot of mistakes and I made my share.”

++++++++++Also WFMY News 2 Sports’ Amanda Ferguson did a good job breaking down the SEG-NWG game, last night on the Friday Football Fever Show, but the Fever needs to bring back the scroll or roll of the scores at the bottom of the screen….Some area teams, even teams from the county, got no score or mention, on last night’s show…Just a few thoughts to chew on, along with your toast this morning….++++++++++

Good to see our old friend Steve Huffman still on the high school football trail and his work on Western Guilford at Rockingham County last night, with the Hornets’ Dante Bovian rushing for three TD’s and WG QB Robbie Boyd engineering the Hornet victory and the Hornets’ defense, which we featured on Football in Focus back on Thursday night, well that Hornet defense stepped up again…..Steve Huffman:Western Guilford’s defense forced four turnovers (including an interception and a fumble recovery by Darrien Dalton), then relied on the running of senior Dante Bovian to carry them to the win.

Let’s step outside the County lines for just a minute and see what happened with Matthews Butler at Richmond County last night/Friday night…from Donnell Coley with the Richmond Daily Journal…
ROCKINGHAM —After rolling through teams in the first couple of games of the young season, No. 1 Richmond Senior was locked in a tussle early, but used a second-half rally to run away from No. 8 Butler, 42-14, at home on Friday.

Bulldogs (1-2) quarterback Parish Metzger had the most success of any passer the Raiders (3-0) had faced and finished 17 of 41 for 185 yards. The visitor’s defense also grabbed two interceptions in the first half, but couldn’t withstand the arsenal of weapons the home team presented.

Richmond quarterback Caleb Hood had a game-high 315 total yards, and accounted for five of the team’s six touchdowns. Jakolbe Baldwin ended with a team-high four receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown.

    Voice from the Wilderness here, again. I am sick that North Carolina and Wake Forest are playing football this Friday. It is the fault of ESPN and the NCAA. I’m saddened college coaches don’t have the courage to fight the disrespect of high school football and stop this.
