Turnovers Key In Red Devils Win

September 24, 2010

Newton-Conover converted four Maiden turnovers into touchdowns as the Red Devils defeated the Blue Devils 48-26 in both teams’ conference opener.

“That was the difference in the game, I think,” said Newton-Conover’s Jake Cansler, who intercepted Maiden quarterback Matt Johnson’s first pass of the game and later recovered two fumbles. “We got the ball back to the offense plenty of times.”

Maiden coach Brian Brown, too, said turnovers were the difference in the contest.

With the score tied at 14 at halftime, Bunker Hill needed to make something happen against East Burke.

It did exactly that.

The Bears scored on the opening drive of the second half Friday and forced a fumble on the ensuing kickoff to seize control of their conference opener. The Bears scored five touchdowns in the second half en route to a 47-14 win at home Friday over the Cavaliers. Its the first time since 1980 the Bears started a season 5-0.

Conference play begins this week in the Catawba Valley 2-A, with two of the leagues’ biggest rivals set to square off Friday. Newton-Conover (4-0) travels to Maiden (3-1), and both teams look to start league play on stable ground.

“It starts this week for everybody, so if you win, you’re tied for first place, which is how you want to start,” Red Devils head coach Nick Bazzle said. “We’re getting one of the big guns first this year.”

But fans of both teams know this matchup is more than just the kickoff of this year’s conference schedule; it’s also about bragging rights.

Red Devils Take Control

September 24, 2010

The first game Thursday at Bandys between the Trojans and the Newton-Conover Red Devils turned into a battle of will. The teams were tied at 25 and neither budged until the Red Devils scored three straight points — on a kill from Isabella Zaliagiris and back-to-back Bandys errors — to earn the 30-28 win.

The Red Devils rode that momentum winning the next two games 25-15 and 25-22 to get the 3-0 sweep at Bandys, and they took control of the Catawba Valley 2-A conference.
