BUNN -- David Howle’s early-season assessment that his Bunn Wildcats had the potential to be a contender is looking more spot-on by the day.
Howle and his Wildcats rolled into the Class 2-AA State Playoffs off a strong late finish -- and Bunn continued that momentum by rolling past Greene Central by a 69-20 margin in Friday’s postseason opener at the BHS Football Field.
LOUISBURG -- The fourth-down blues haunted the Louisburg Warriors during their first-round matchup with Lakewood on Friday in the Class 1-AA State Football Playoffs.
On four occasions in the second half, the Warriors went for it on fourth down in their own territory -- and were unsuccessful.
KINSTON -- In the estimation of Coach Jeremy Buck, closing out an opponent has been one of the biggest challenges this season for his Franklinton High School football team.
That bugaboo would strike at the most inopportune time Friday -- and it would close the Red Rams a chance to advance in the Class 2-AA State Playoffs.
