Winning the Indian Classic last weekend at St. Stephens, the Newton-Conover wrestling team kept the ball rolling this past weekend at North Iredell.
The Red Devils went undefeated at 7-0 during the two-day Raider Duals tournament, eventually ousting perennial 4A power Lake Norman, 40-27, to take the team title for the second-straight tournament.
Newton-Conover also defeated Albemarle (81-0), South Rowan (64-15), West Iredell (73-4), Statesville (56-18), Alexander Central (48-16) and North Iredell (42-23) along the way to its championship.
Fred T. Foard continued its impressive run this season on the wrestling mat, sweeping matches wrestled against five teams at the North Lincoln Duals on Saturday.
The Tigers defeated host North Lincoln, 70-3, while also beating West Rowan (65-12), Thomasville (57-16), Forestview (67-12) and East Lincoln (66-5).
Foard's next match on the mat is Tuesday during at tri-match against Mooresville and Mallard Creek at Mooresville.
CHARLOTTE â€” If only the NFL would shorten its games to 45 minutes instead of 60, the Carolina Panthers might just be in playoff contention.
Instead, they're 4-9.
In what has been an all too familiar refrain this season, the Panthers blew yet another fourth quarter lead Sunday in a 31-23 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The Panthers led by 16 at halftime and by 6 entering the final quarter, but their offense bogged down, and they were outscored 24-0 in the second half at home.
It's the sixth time this season the Panthers have led or been tied in the fourth quarter only to lose.
