Who won and who moves on to Round Three of the NCHSAA High School Football Playoffs???
I got the news earlier and you probably did too, that Dudley and Grimsley both won Tonight, and that the Panthers and Whirlies will play again next Friday in the NCHSAA West Regional Semifinals…
The GreensboroSports.com “Whirlie Watcher’ Mike Fanning has the full report on the Grimsley 42-35 victory over the Cornelius Hough Huskies.
As far as Dudley goes, and I was there at The Tarp/Tarpley Stadium for this game, and as far as I can tell, I have never seen a high school quarterback throw for Eight(8) touchdowns before, but the Dudley Panthers’ QB Andrew/Drew Attmore II did just that on Friday night November 17, 2023….I saw TJ Logan, from Northern Guilford HS, run for 8 TDs in a game, a 3-AA State Championship Game at that, and that was back around 2012 vs. the Charlotte Catholic Cougars, at Wake Forest BB&T Field..
Tonight, Drew Attmore threw for Eight(8) touchdowns and the Dudley Panthers were able to fight back and knock off the JM Robinson Bulldogs in Round Three Playoff action…Dudley(13-0) at Boling Springs Crest(13-0) next Friday night, and the Grimsley Whirlies(13-0) will travel to face the Weddington Warriors(11-2)…Dudley and Grimsley both #4 Seeds, while Crest and Weddington both check at the top Seed in the Western Bracket, going to war as the #1 team…
Andrew Attmore II with Eight(8) TD tosses and for the Dudley Panthers, and they needed every one of them…
Dudley 50, JM Robinson 28

6:30 Third Quarter Robinson’s QB Isaac Lee connects with Xavier Burnett on 70-yard pass play, Szabo’s Kick is Good…JM Robinson 21, Dudley 20….The Bulldogs called themselves the Underdogs prior the game, and they taken the lead, here in the early goings of the Second Half…But what does Dudley do??? The Panthers catch a spark when Kordell Bartley hauls in pass from his Dudley QB Drew Attmore, and Bartley runs towards Highway 29 North, on 70-yard TD play…The Two-Point Play attempt is No Good…Dudley 26, Robinson 21…This was the beginning of a 30-0 Dudley run…..Back to the scoring plays now….Dudley is getting ready to roll, with nearly all of their key scoring work, coming through the air…

Steak n Shake Offensive Player of the Game:QB Andrew Attmore II from Dudley High School…Eight(8) TD passes by Attmore II
Steak n Shake Defensive Player of the Game:LB Robert McCollum from Dudley High School…Huge Interception and several key tackles by the sophomore linebacker McCollum…
The 30-0 Dudley scoring run in the second half was the turning point of the game, and the Big-Play on the pass from Attmore to Kordell Bartley was the Game-Changer…Bartley made the catch, hit a middle seam and ran like a deer to the end zone, covering 70 yards on the play…Huge and Dudley was off and running the rest of the way, after that Big Play…Game-Changer, Attmore to Bartley, for sure…
Attmore with 4 TD passes to Nasir Newkirk, 3 TD passes to CJ Neely and 1 TD pass to Bartley, and it was a Big One, to Kordell Bartley….
