KENLY -- After committing some untimely special teams mistakes early in the game, Louisburg more than made up for them the rest of the way during Friday’s regular season prep football opener at North Johnston. LHS used some special teams heroics to take charge for good, and the Warriors continued to pull away en route to a 49-21 road decision over the Panthers.
GOLDSBORO -- In a game of crazy momentum swings, Franklinton had the final say during a 29-20 road victory over Goldsboro in the prep football season opener for both clubs. The Red Rams appeared well on their way to a convincing victory as they put up 20 uncontested points in the first half.
WILSON -- Wilson Fike has gained a preseason reputation as being one of the top Class 3-A football teams in Eastern North Carolina. The Golden Demons did nothing to dispel that notion during their opener Friday at home against the Bunn Wildcats. Like Fike, Bunn has high hopes for the campaign, but the Wildcats were unable to find the end zone during a 28-0 setback.
