Washington High School set a program record for points in a 74-48 victory over South Lenoir, while Northside broke open a close game with Riverside to win 38-20. Southside looks ahead after a tough night in Tarboro. Homecoming Kings are prominently featured in the top three performances.
- Jaden Hambric-Just minutes after the senior was crowned King, the Pam Pack senior sprinted 66 yards for a touchdown on the second half’s second play. Hambric ran for 171 yards on only seven carries and scored three of the Pack’s 10 touchdowns.
- James Gorham-The Northside homecoming King gained 160 yards on 12 carries and scored twice in the Panthers win over Riverside.
- Terry Moore-Not to be overshadowed, the junior ran for 134 yards on just six carries and scored twice in the WHS record-breaking game against the Blue Devils. On a night of big plays, Moore had a 51 yard scoring run.
Honor Roll: The entire Washington High School offensive line, which paved the way for 508 total yards (405 rushing) and 10 touchdowns on just 28 plays.
WHS kicker Ridge Zerniak was 6-6 on extra-points and caught a two point conversion pass. Quarterback Hayes Pippen was 5-7 for 103 yards and two touchdowns. Defensive end Tysheed Dixon blocked two punts.
Northside running back Mitch Godley joined Gorham in the 100-yard club with 112 and scored a touchdown. Tyler Modlin scored a rushing touchdown and caught a scoring pass, while Panthers kicker Chase Tomaini was 5-5 on extra-point kicks and booted an 18-yard field goal. Elijah Holloway had an interception and defensive lineman Fred Taylor recorded a sack.
