NWG(2-0)/Mendenhall(0-2)
Northwest Guilford got on the board for the first time today with 2:57 left in the First Quarter, and it would not be the last time the Vikings would find the end zone…NWG QB Tanner Ballou hooked up with Trent Cloud, on a 60-yard pass play and with the Ian Coleman two-point conversion run, NWG leads early, 8-0…

Tanner Ballou and the Vikings were not finished, as Ballou went to Taylor Branch on a 18-yard TD pass play with just 47.7 seconds left in the First Quarter and Northwest gets the two-point conversion run to go with the touchdown, and NWG has extended their lead to 16-0…

That’s how the First Quarter concluded, Northwest Guilford 16, Mendenhall 0

We move ahead to the Second Period/Quarter, as Ballou looks the skies and he finds Trent Cloud again, this time on an 88-yard touchdown pass play and with another two-point run, Northwest in now in total control, NWG Vikings 24, Mendenhall Mustangs 0…There was 5:12 remaining in the Second Quarter when the Vikings put up those points, and a key point to make one more time, NWG was not through yet….

NWG got a 12-yard TD run by their QB Tanner Ballou and then Ballou hit Ian Coleman on the two-point conversion pass, and with just 1:23 on the first half clock, NWG now has a very comfortable 32-0 lead, over Mendenhall…

NWG takes their 32-0 lead into the halftime break/intermission and for the First Half, Ballou with three TD passes, one TD run and 166 passing yards alone, on his TD connections to Cloud and Branch….Trent Cloud is the brother of Cam/Cameron Cloud, who played for the NWG High School Vikings, and now is part of the Richmond Spiders football team….Taylor Branch might be part of the Cliff Branch inner-circle, and that’s Cliff Branch, who used to catch/retrieve passes from Ken Stabler and Jim Plunkett, back in the day….

And now back to the Second Half of our game today…

Most of the NWG offensive starters were done for the game after halftime, and with some reserves/backups in the game, the Vikings still kept their foot on the gas pedal….With 40.2 seconds to play in the Third Quarter, Landon Webb got loose for a one-yard Northwest Guilford touchdown run, and backup QB Alex Waterfield ran the ball in for the two-point conversion and the Vikings now have an edge of 40-0 over Mendenhall….
(Alex Waterfield, reminding us of Bob Waterfield, back in the day.)

One key point in Northwest’ favor is the fact that the NWG Vikings did not miss out on any of their two-point conversions today…Basically, they could not be stopped, going 6-6 on the two-point tries…

Northwest had one more TD left in them, but first let’s update you on that Third Quarter score…..

End of Third Quarter:Northwest Guilford 40, Mendenhall 0

And for that final NWG TD today, they got the touchdown run form Devan Idlebyrd, and that was followed closely by Blaize Johnson’s two-point conversion jaunt into the back of the end zone, and your final score hits the Mendenhall Scoreboard, there at Deebs Young Memorial Field…..

Final today:Northwest Guilford Middle 48, Mendenhall 0…NWG wins today, 48-0 and the Vikes took last week’s game over Western Guilford, 56-0, and now Northwest awaits Southwest Guilford, with the Cowboys coming to Roscoe Billings Stadium next Wednesday, to face off with the NWG Vikings….And for NWG reaching their high octane offensive totals, the Vikings went with reserves, or backup position players, almost the entire Second Half…And the NWG “D” looks to be for real, after the first two weeks of the 2019 season…..NWG Coach Kevin Stewart noted that Ian Coleman and Alex Waterfield were very tough on defense today for the Vikings…

NWG now (2-0) and Mendenhall(0-2)…For the Mendenhall Mustangs, Morehead and Miranda were working hard out there again today for MMS and if they continue on, those kids and their fellow Mustangs will be fighting for that first win, and it is set to come their way soon….

Video interview with Northwest Guilford head coach Kevin Stewart coming up, along with our game footage…..

    You mentioned nothing of Ferndale which can beat over half the middle school football teams in the county.

  • Ferndale Alumni said,

    Ferndale should be mentioned among one of the best middle school football teams. They can beat half the middle schools in the triad.

  • Andy Durham said,

    I may have missed something, but we have Ferndale Middle in our headline and their score up at the top of the page…Coach Shaw sent me the info on Ferndale and it was up here last night….

    Ferndale is doing great and they have had a great two-year run…Coach Shaw and the crew do a super job over there in High Point…
