Northside was the only county school to win on a rough Friday night for the locals. The Panthers ran for 462 yards and scored all 10 touchdowns on the ground in a blowout win at LeJeune. However, the two backs most responsible didn’t start the season in those spots.

  1. Elijah Holloway-Northside’s burly running back was just warming up when he ran for 170 yards and scored four touchdowns in the win over Jones Sr. two weeks ago. The senior fullback ripped of runs of 55, 39 and two more of 20 plus for 189 yards on 11 carries and a pair of touchdowns in the victory at LeJeune. The senior has started defense all year, but took over in the backfield after junior Jamie Corprew injured his ankle.

  1. Sincere Columbus- The Panthers freshman tailback took advantage of his first extended varsity playing time with 122 yards and four touchdowns on 13 carries against the Devil Pups. His longest runs were 17 and 29 yards.

  1. Walker Hill-Southside took a 52-13 loss at East Carteret, but the senior quarterback produced most of the offense with 233 passing yards. He completed 16-29 passes, including a 27-yard touchdown to Manvonte DeLoach.

Best of the Rest: Northside: Hunter Chrismon intercepted a pass and contributed four tackles, while Landon Buck had a sack. Kicker Chase Tomaini made all nine of his extra point attempts.

Pungo Christian Academy: Freshman quarterback Austin Gibbs was 5-9 for 202 yards and a pair of touchdowns and added 43 rushing yards on six carriers in a 60-12 loss at Lawrence Academy in 8-man action. One of his scoring passes was an 84-yarder to senior Conner Sweet, who had 128 yards receiving and made five tackles on defense. Quay Artis caught the other touchdown pass and had eight tackles. Ethan Mann led the Raiders with nine tackles and Ben Russell contributed two tackles for loss.

Southside: Junior Tequan (Tater) Moore caught six passes for 97 yards, had 4.5 tackles for loss on defense and recorded a sack. Darren Joyner caught five passes for 63 yards and DeLoach had four catches for 55 yards and a touchdown. Freshman Brian Salinas scored the other touchdown.

Washington: Freshman quarterback Cameron Whitley was 10-15 for 213 yards and a pair of touchdown passes to Christian Norman in the Pam Pack’s 42-27 loss at SouthWest Edgecombe. Josh Gordan ran for 50 yards and a touchdown, while defensive back Koby Munday blocked a punt and returned in for a touchdown. Norman totaled 124 receiving yards.

This week: Southside’s home game vs. Jones Sr. has been moved to Thursday at 7 p.m. Northside hosts Pamlico County and Washington entertains Ayden-Grifton Friday. Pungo Christian’s regular season is over.
