We went 8-2 on our picks and almost saw one major upset on Monday night when Western Alamance, the #1 ranked 3-A team in the state, had to battle back in the 4th quarter to tie Dudley at 7-7 and then the Warriors went on to win in Overtime 14-7 with one of the state’s top players, WA’s QB Donald Britt, leading the way.
Britt scored both Western TD’s and without this kid the Warriors would be in big trouble. Dudley’s defense played a great game and it’s a darn shame the Panthers had to lose.
Page won to clinch the Metro 4-A Conference title because if they were to lose this Friday to Northwest they would be tied with Grimsley assuming the Whirlies don’t get hijacked on their way over to Smith. If Page lost and Grimsley won they would both be 4-1 Metro and Page beat Grimsley 24-23 in the head-to-head battle to give the title to the Pirates. Page can pull the perfect 5-0 by topping NWG but you have think the Vikings would love to be the spoiler.
Monday night it was Page over High Point Central 35-14(Pirate QB Will Newman 2 TD’s passing/2 TD’s running , Grimsley knocked off East Forsyth 35-21(another big night for Whirlie senior Zach Maynard), Northwest shutout Smith 34-0(for NWG Zack Lewis is back), Western Guilford handled Bartlett Yancey 27-14, High Point Andrews eased past Southwest Guilford 18-14, and Reidsville rolled over Southern Guilford 46-14.
Our man Willliam Graves ran for 177 yards against a very tough Reidsville Ram squad and now the Storm have to re-group and get ready for the trip down to Eastern Guilford on Friday night. I have caught the Storm players’ attention with my predictions and reports and it is good to have all of the SG players coming over to GREENSBOROSports.com.
The last games of the regular season are coming up this Friday and the playoffs are just around the corner.
