Dudley stops Northern Guilford 12-7 at Tarpley Stadium and that was the biggest game of the night or was the late win by Northwest at Smith the biggest game of the night or was the victory by Southern Guilford over Southeast at SEG the biggest game of the night or was it the Page Pirates putting up 63 points at home at the Kirb or was it Ragsdale wearing out Western early and then finishing off Western at WG or was it the route and roll on the road by High Point Central at Lexington or was it NEG taking back the McLeansville Strap from EG, on the Rams’ turf at NEG…..
Got any thoughts on last night’s games????? Our picks came out (6-3) and Southeast Guilford is becoming the toughest team to call and Southwest Guilford is making their dreams come true and NWG keeps on winning, even though they lost two of the best backs in the area from last year’s Viking squad in Chris Kennedy and Sean Ples….
Keenan Allen proved why he is the area’s and possibly the state’s top player with his work in the losing effort at Dudley. The kid named Keenan, can line up and play at any position on the field. You have to give Dudley a ton of credit though, for their excellent “Team Effort”, in the Panther’s huge home win in what was a rebound game, after the loss at Ragsdale the week before…..
Not much time at all, to look back at last night, because next week is already upon us and staring us right in the face.
Next Friday will be extra large, and it will even get stated a day earlier than usual, with High Point Central hosting Smith at Simeon Stadium in High Point on Thursday night. Both teams will only have two days(Monday and Tuesday) to get ready with the advantage going to HPC, since they claimed a win at Lex. last night. Both teams will have their light workouts on Wednesday….
The extra large game will be “The Battle of the Unbeatens”, in Jamestown, as the Page Pirates(3-0) travel to face the Ragsdale Tigers(3-0) in a re-match of game played last year at the Kirb, that Ragsdale collected on their way to a (13-0) run before their November loss to Dudley. Page had a late play where QB Will Newman scored, to give the Pirates the lead and what would have given them the win, but the play was called back due to a penelty. Newman later had to leave the game after he suffered a concussion. Page is a much more balanced team this year with Phan, Rogers, Gordon, McCoy, and Summers all contributing to the Pirates’ offensive success.
Ragsdale has also gotten better with Luke Heavner taking over and doing a fine job at quarterback for the Tigers, and DeSean Anderson appears to be healthy, plus Luke Sonrricker returns, and we all remember he had a huge game last year versus Page. The key in this case, will be the Tiger defense with Sparks, Stone, Armwood, Ellison, McNeil, McQueen, Grimes and others…..
Again the key will be the Page offense, which has been on fire, facing the Ragsdale defense, which has only given up 24 points all year long……
Other key games on the upcoming slate will show us Northwest Guilford(3-0) at Northern Guilford(2-1), SWG(3-0) at High Point Andrews(1-2), Northeast Guilford(2-1) at Reidsville(3-0), and WG(0-3) at EG(0-3)…..And don’t forget the Thursday game with Smith(2-1) at High Point Central(2-1) in Simeon Stadium, in High Point……
