Published 6:02 pm Monday, October 25, 2021
All three Beaufort County teams picked up relatively easy victories Friday on Senior Night. WHS senior Terry Moore led a group of impressive performances on both sides of the ball.
- Terry Moore-If Duke University sent a coach to watch the future Blue Devil’s performance against SouthWest Edgecombe, they came away impressed. Moore ran for 146 yards on 14 carries, with totes of 23, 64 and two yards for touchdowns, took a screen pass from Hayes Pippin 40 yards for another score, then threw a 15-yard scoring pass to Pippin on a trick play in the third quarter. He also had a big night on defense from his safety position with six solo tackles and a sack.
- Hayes Pippin-The Washington senior quarterback complemented Moore’s big game with one of his own. He was 12-15 for 105 yards and the touchdown pass to Moore and ran seven times for 104 yards in the 42-22 Senior Night victory.
- Kenjray Coffield-The Southside senior tailback carried seven times for 104 yards and scored two touchdowns on 44 and one yard runs in a weather shortened, 28-0, victory over East Carteret. He also intercepted a pass from his cornerback spot as the Seahawks improved to 7-1.
Best of the Rest: The Northside starters played the first half only against an out-manned LeJeune squad. Seven different Panthers scored touchdowns, including senior fullback Mitch Godley, who gained 77 yards on five carries, including a 37-yard scoring jaunt. Northside (8-1) rolled up 229 yards in the first half before the junior varsity finished the game. Fortino Beltran, Marcus Clayton, Noah Manning, Keifer Boyd, Elijah Holloway and Famous Wilson scored the other touchdowns, Wilson’s on his only carry for 25 yards. Chase Tomani was 7-7 on extra-point kicks, Gus Vansant and Holloway recorded sacks and Carson Clinkscales recorded a safety.
Southside: Rain and lightning halted the contest midway through the third quarter for a 28-0 Seahawks win over East Carteret. Tequon (Tater) Moore returned an interception 35 yards for a touchdown, Manvonte DeLoach did the same from 91 yards and Coffield also added an interception. Moore had eight tackles, including one for loss as the defense recorded its second straight shutout and third this season. Jamie Corprew also had a tackle for loss.
Washington: Freshman linebacker Gabe Davis had 14 solo tackles and one assist, Dawson Mitchell had five solos and four assists, while Austin Waters had three of each. Senior Johnathan Richardson ran for 74 yards on just four carries.
The Pam Pack, Panthers and Seahawks are on the road Friday for their final regular season games.
