Hickory Scalps Indians

October 22, 2010

With a 14-14 tie at halftime and a first half when Hickory was its “own worst enemy,” the Red Tornadoes needed a special second half to keep playoff hopes alive.

According Hickory quarterback Kyle Johnson, it was “gut check time.”

“At halftime, we knew it was a close game, so we had to come out here and finish,” Johnson said. “It was something we hadn’t done all year, and we finally did it.”

Hickory scored three second-half touchdowns, including 14 unanswered points in a 77-second span in the fourth quarter to seal a 35-21 win over rival St. Stephens.

Bunker Snaps Skid

October 22, 2010

Reggie Davis knows the stars should shine the brightest on homecoming.
The junior running back provided the excitement in Bunker Hill’s 39-14 win over West Caldwell, finishing with 267 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns. The win snaps a three-game losing streak for the Bears.

“If he’s fired up, we’re fired up,” said Bears quarterback Joe Litton. “Just give him the ball a few times, talk to him a little bit and get him going.”

N-C Starts Slow In Big Win

October 22, 2010

Newton-Conover characteristically got off to a slow start Friday against Draughn.

The Red Devils were called for two penalties on offense on the first series, including a touchdown run by Jervasse Herrin negated by a holding penalty.

They traded touchdowns with the Wildcats, and late in the first half Octavius Harden returned a kickoff 96 yards to break a 14-14 tie.

Sky-High Confidence at N-C

October 22, 2010

Going into this year’s volleyball playoffs, the Newton-Conover Red Devils knew what they could achieve. It started Thursday night with a 3-0 (25-5, 25-16, 25-14) win at home over Wilkes Central in the first round of the 2-A West playoffs.

The level of confidence, however, is higher in 2010 than it was in 2009.
“Last year, we made it to the fourth round, but we had no idea we were going to go that far,” junior Corbin Evans said. “I think we should have gotten past that round, but we just weren’t a team. This year, we are a team, and I think we’ll go very far.”
