The Matthews Butler Bulldogs beat the Charlotte Independence Patriots 31-24 on the Patriots’ home field in Charlotte last night with tickets going on Ebay at $50.00 a pop and does Butler finally have the upper hand on Independence in the 4-AA ranks?????
Will they meet again before the finals?????
In our neck of the woods on the Saturday morning before the playoff brackets come out on a Saturday afternoon, High Point Central tied Ragsdale last night 0-0. But, that was just the first 12 minutes and after the second quarter got rolling, Ragsdale got rolling and they rolled over HPC 34-7. Luke Heavner, D’onovan Smith, DeSean Anderson, Tyquan Roberts, DeShawn Shouse, Barry Brown, Tyler Ritter, Elliot Cobb, McNeil, Jones, Sparks, Stone, Grimes, McQueen, Redfern, Washington, Armwood, Romer, Willard, pick your poison. Nobody goes both ways, they are fresh and they mesh.
Congratulations to the Ragsdale Tigers, back-to-back years, unbeaten in the regular season, a perfect (11-0) this time around……
Grimsley led Dudley early and then it was all Panthers later on as they won over at Jamieson Stadium 48-3 and hopefully Paul Lambeth will have more on this game later on this morning. It looked like a lot of JR Peterson, Alex Moore, David Amerson and Mycah Gaylord from Brian Hall’s world on Friday Football Fever on TV 2.
Northern Guilford(10-1) trailed Western Alamance 2-0, then it was NG 7-2 and then Western went up 9-7 and then it was all Nighthawks all the time as they rolled over the Warriors 48-16. I talked to one of the NG fans after the game and they said Rocco Scarfone had a big night and that he really looked strong in the win along with Keenan Allen and Maurice Harris. Allen is supposed to commit to Alabama at halftime of the Alabama-LSU game today down in Tuscaloosa. I got a call from down there this morning at about 8:30am and that’s the talk there today…..
Eastern Guilford got the much-needed victory they had to have as they whipped McMichael 38-19. We haven’t heard from Coach Loosemore yet, but I’ve got to believe that Josh Morehead was on the money for the Wildcats…..
Here’s hoping that we might get the full word on the Page Pirates’ win over Southeast Guilford from Rick Mosley or from Joe Barile, but we do know that Page closed out with the 35-22 win over Southeast…Page closes regular season at (9-2) and there were a lot of shots of James Summers on the Fever Show last night, so that tells me that James had one of his better games and he has had some good ones, to only be a sophomore…..
Jeffrey Simms had 4TD passes for the Smith Golden Eagles as the Eagles took care of Southern Alamance 53-16 and Smith will enter the playoffs at (5-5) unless lightning strikes on a November day and takes them out of the playoff running…
Northeast Guilford made a statement and we don’t hear much out of the Ram Nation, so I guess they are the silent, but deadly type and with that NEG final of 53-0 over Ledford, you can tell these Dudes are Deadly. Ledford had topped Southern Guilford 14-6 last week and here comes Northeast Guilford and the Rams just leave Ledford laying by the curb…..Rayshawn Trader, Michael Sanders, Trey Ingram and Darius White…..Those 4 are usually good for about 400 yards-plus of rushing yardage per game. I would love to see Northern and Northeast go at it again in the playoffs, maybe at around, round number 3 or 4…..These Rams are for real and nothing is new, with Coach Tommy Pursley they are always in the hunt…….
I hated that Southern Guilford lost to Asheboro. I saw Warren Scott and Josh McDuffie running hard on TV, but the Storm came up a bit short, falling to the Blue Comets, 14-9 and I hope that doesn’t hurt their playoff chances….I have a load of respect for Coach Brown, he is a strong leader in that Southern Guilford/Sumner community……
High Point Andrews over Wheatmore 66-0 and I will take anything you have on that game, because I have nothing and you are getting the honest report from me on this one. The honest report and we should have all the playoff brackets up here for you later on this afternoon….
I am leaving all of last night’s finals up here for you as we roll the tape and close out the regular season on the HS football Saturday morning rewind………
