How about going out on a limb last night and then seeing that limb break off right in front of your face. With two games this week, on Monday and then Friday and both of the broadcast games being one-point differences, 7-6 Monday, and 50-49 last night, all you can say is CRAZY MAN, and ask the question have you ever seen anything like it in just one week of football?????
Again it was 7-6 on Monday with Ragsdale over SEG in a game that wasn’t decided until the last minute of the game and then last evening with Page up 34-8 at halftime and then they fall in overtime 50-49 to Davie County. The word is, that almost like you see in some of our presidential races, FOX 8 had already declared Page the winner of the game on their football show after seeing the first half results.
The first half blowout, the interception, the safety, the fumble recovery for a War Eagle touchdown, the blocked extra point in overtime, the Davie County fumble on their first play in OT; this game had it all, and there may not be many more like it, ever. Our man Joe Barile will have full details here at the site later today.
Now back to that, “Give me a limb and I’ll break it”, statement. I went for the downs this week and had Page, Grimsley, and even Smith taking victories and none of them made me look like a genius. The record for this week is decent at (7-4) and the season record now stands at (50-16) and with the Pirates, Whirlies, and Golden Eagles falling, we also saw Southest Guilford come home with the empty feeling(losing 14-12) and we had them topping Trinity at Archdale or in that neighborhood.
Joe will get us up to speed on Page-Davie County and we look for Lee or Mark to help us on the Ragsdale-Eastern Randolph contest which the Tigers took from the Wildcats 31-12. Looks like it was a big night for LB Walt Sparks with a fumble return for a TD and DeSean Anderson had 82 yards in receptions on just three catches.
Talking about those Wildcats, Eastern Guilford got the win at Southwest Guilford to go (6-0) for the season and Reidsville is waiting down the road for EG. EG coach Scott Loosemore sat his quarterback Jason Davis out in the first quarter on Friday night after Davis was one minute late for an Algebra class this week. It was 0-0 after one period with EG-SWG but Davis came in and he ran for two Wildcat scores and passed for another and Eastern wins it 33-8.
Western Guilford pounded Morehead 43-0 behind two TD’s each from Brandon Easter and Julius Hooks and the Hornets are now at (3-4) overall. WG had 134 yards rushing and 115 yds. through the air. The Smith Golden Eagles played North Forsyth tight but came up without a “W” for 27th game in a row. Twenty-seven straight games now without a win for Smith and the Golden Eagles lost the first half 14-6 and in half number two they fell 18-6, but at one point Smith was only down 20-12 in the second half. The NF Vikings missed on 4 PAT kicks and this was a perfect chance for the Eagles to get a win, but it won’t come this week. BJ Briley scored both Smith touchdowns.
Doug Cockman has our NEG rewind and it is good to see Coach Tommy Pursley’s men back in the hunt with the big win over Southern Alamance. What is up with Grimsley????? The Whirlies are on a four-game losing streak after winning their first two and now stand at (2-4) after falling at WS Reynolds 25-0 last night. Lately Grimsley can’t even seem to score points.
Northern Guilford led by the man we highlighted here at the site yesterday, Rocco Scarfone, crushed North Raleigh Christian 36-0. Little Rocky had 3 TD passes and ran for another score to send the NG Nighthawks to (5-1). Dudley smacked Bartlett Yancey 41-0 and Reidsville racked High Point Andrews 47-6.
That has us covered for this week’s rewind and if you can help us and pass along other details on the games. please leave them in the comment box.

In one week we go with 7-6 and 50-49 in OT. Wow, that is CRAZY MAN…….
