Friday Night Finish:Big Night for Jaiden Evans and Steven Murray at EG/NWG QB Tanner Ballou with 7 TD passes/Ferere and Boyd with 3 TD passes each and much more

Lots of people still asking that question of who will Finish #2 behind Grimsley in the Metro, and others are wanting to know who’s going to Finish at #2 behind Dudley, in the Mid-State 3-A Conference…Studying the Finish, on the Friday Night Finish…
(Page with the best chance to get Grimsley, as the Pirates will play host to the Whirlies next Friday night…Eastern Guilford with the best chance to get Dudley, with the Wildcats traveling to face the Panthers, at Tarpley Stadium in two weeks….Do you see those upsets happening??? Get ready, the big games are on the way, as we get ready to hit the Finish Line, in 2022.)

Going into Week Ten you have:
Metro
Grimsley(8-0/5-0)
Northwest Guilford(6-2/4-1)
Page(5-3/4-1)
Southeast Guilford(6-2/3-2)
Southwest Guilford(4-4/2-3)
Northern Guilford(3-5/1-4)
Ragsdale(1-7/1-3)
Western Guilford(0-8/0-5)
********Next week:Grimsley at Page, Northwest Guilford at Southeast Guilford, Ragsdale at Southwest Guilford, Northern Guilford at Western Guilford….**********
(Page working to take down Grimsley, NWG and SEG will be in a very Big Battle next Friday night at Bill Slayton Stadium…Both NWG and SEG have lost to Grimsley, SEG also lost to Northern Guilford, SEG at Page in the last game of the regular season, NWG has already beaten Page, and NWG finishes at home vs. SWG…Right now NWG, SEG, and Page are looking over each other’s shoulders, waiting for who’s next. Page wants Grimsley really bad, but the Pirates will have to keep an eye on the full picture…Some crazy things could happen in these last two weeks of the regular season.)

Mid-State 3-A
Dudley(6-2/5-0)
Eastern Guilford(5-3/5-0)
Southern Guilford)5-3/4-1)
Northeast Guilford(5-3/2-3)
Smith(2-6/2-3)
High Point Central(1-7/1-4)
**********Next Week:Southern Guilford at Dudley, Eastern at Smith, Northeast Guilford at Rockingham County, WS Atkins at High Point Central….**********
(The Northeast Guilford Rams could conceivably finish at (7-3) overall…At The ROCK next Friday and close it out at home, vs. Smith….Kind of wild and crazy about how this thing could end up…EG over Dudley, at Dudley is a stretch, but stranger things have happened….EG must get past Smith first, to set up that Magical Matchup with the Dudley Panthers on October 28.)

High Point Andrews(4-5/1-4) Andrews lost 28-27 to Morehead this Friday night….HP Andrews is OFF next week….

Things could be coming into a much clearer picture after next Friday night’s games….A lot could be determined, but there may be many seeds that will still be on the vine…..

From last night, since we are getting deeper into the Saturday morning hours, and do they turn back the clocks this year, so we can get that extra Free Hour of Sleep???

Again, a look back at how things finished on Friday October 14, 2022…..

Eastern Guilford was down 15-7, at halftime and the ‘Cats came back and knocked off the Southern Guilford Storm…That game was going 6-0 SG, 7-6 EG, 8-7 SG, then 15-7 SG at the half…EG got clicking in the second half and we will have more numbers and stats on this game down below, but for numbers sake, EG out-scored SG, 27-6, in the second half of this game to secure the victory…

Steven Murray, a true spark plug for the EG Wildcats…Punt return for a TD, a TD pass reception, he took a kickoff back for a TD, but the kickoff return for the TD, was called back to due an illegal block in the back, by the ‘Cats…Jaiden Evans ran for 198 yards for Eastern Guilford…Evans had a one-yard touchdown burst late in the Fourth Quarter, that locked up the win for EG over SG…Evans and Murray our Steak n Shake Offensive Players of the game…The EG Defense in the Second Half took home the Steak n Shake Defensive Player of the Game honors…Pretty sure Murray had a pick to go along with his two TD’s on offense….

More on SG at EG coming up down below, and Conner Fields of SG had a Field Day for the Storm, with his receptions, his defense, and his punting…EG QB Tyreik Boyd with 3 TD passes, but he threw his first pick of the season tonight/Friday night…Jamias Ferere, of Southern Guilford with 3 TD passes, but he suffered through three interceptions on the evening…Braxton Veiga, Solomon Howell, Tavion Bullock and others very big on defense for Eastern Guilford….

Tanner Ballou threw for Seven(7) touchdown passes on Friday night for the Northwest Guilford Vikings… Ballou with three TD passes to Trent Cloud, and also three TD passes to Bristol Carter, and Ballou had one TD pass to NWG RB Mike Godette….Should put Ballou right at 28 TD passes on the season…Maybe Ballou becoming the Rusty Larue of 2022 for NWG, and when he(Ballou) is through, will he be headed for WFU??? Take Trent Cloud with him, and head on over to Wake, in 2024….Ballou, Cloud and company going to face a very strong SEG club next Friday night, at Forest Oaks….

Grimsley still looking red/white hot on the Friday Football Fever highlights from WFMY TV 2, with Ryan Stephens hooking up with Alex Taylor on a long TD pass…Jamaal Jarrett playing big up front on defense for the Whirlies…Grimsley has been having their way against a lot of teams this season, and will it end up that way next Friday night, at Page???

Page looking very sharp on the Friday Football Frenzy highlights over on WGHP FOX 8 Sports….Paul Thompson and Maurice Andrews running hard, and Jerron Blackwell doing a great job of running the Pirate offense…Page held Northern Guilford to something like 13 points, and that shows the Page “D” is still working for them…

Dudley was destroying Rockingham County, 56-0, and Andrew Attmore II was connecting with Nasir Newkirk, Cordell Bartley, and Jailen Hicks for big gainers…Dudley is hitting their prime at the right time of the season…Dudley has yet to give up a single point this season in five games of Mid-State 3-A Conference play…
(Dudley QB Andrew Attmore II with 5 TD passes for the Dudley Panthers.)
