Washington falls to Havelock

Washington’s three-game winning streak came to an end on Friday as it lost to No. 3 Havelock 41-7 in a Coastal Conference matchup.
After the loss, Pam Pack (4-2, 2-1) coach Sport Sawyer offered no excuses.
“They’re just a very well-coached team and they just out-played us tonight,” Sawyer said.
The Rams (7-0, 3-0) held Washington scoreless for most of the game, but the Pam Pack managed to get some points late in the fourth quarter when Jimmy Williams connected with D.J. Bell for a 75-yard TD pass.
The Pam Pack had a big scoring output in its last time out, a victory over West Craven, but on Friday it could not get anything going.
“Offensively, on Monday night we got a lot of big plays, but tonight we really didn’t have any,” Sawyer said. “It was very ugly tonight on offense.”
Defensively, Washington wasn’t much better.
“It took about five minutes for (the Rams) to get their first score, then we had turnover and they scored about two or three players later,” Sawyer said.
Sawyer said the Pack have to rebound from this and be more resilient.
“We got to find a way to fight better,” Sawyer said. “Tonight’s game reminded me of the (loss) to Tarboro where we were just out-matched. We have to do a better job and fight harder.”
