Northside is the only Beaufort County team left as the fourth round begins Friday. The Panthers defeated Southside, while Washington lost in Elizabeth City to undefeated Northeastern. These are the top individual performances from those games.


  1. Hayes Pippin-Washington’s senior quarterback ended his high school career with 364 total yards in the Pam Pack’s 57-47 loss to Northeastern. He completed 12-18 passes for 230 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 134 more yards on 15 carries with a pair of TD’s as the Pack finished 10-3. Pippin was named the Eastern Plains Conference player of the year last week.


  1. Mitch Godley-the Northside senior fullback/linebacker put the Panthers ahead of Southside 14-0 with touchdowns on the first two possessions, then helped the defense hang on for a 14-7 home victory to advance to the fourth round of the 1A state playoffs. Godley scored on runs of 10 and five yards and totaled 169 yards on 21 carries as the Panthers raised their record to 11-1. He also made nine tackles, including two for loss.


  1. Terry Moore-the Pam Pack senior running back/defensive back did a little of everything in the season-ending defeat in Elizabeth City. Moore ran 14 times for 80 yards and a touchdown, caught a pair of scoring passes, returned a punt 89 yards to set up another score, intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble.
