This Week's Heavy Hitter: Sanford

September 13, 2010

Lenoir-Rhyne University's Ryan Sanford has been selected as this week's Ronnie Lott Heavy Hitter Award winner.

Sanford, a redshirt freshman free safety, made a key hit on a pass break-up late in Saturday’s night game that prevented a touchdown and preserved Lenoir-Rhyne’s 41-13 win over Davidson.

Sanford, who was credited with a tackle against the Wildcats and has three takedowns for the season, wins the award for the first time in his Bear career.

GoldToeMoretz will donate $1,000 in the names of each week’s winner of the Heavy Hitter Award to Habitat For Humanity of Catawba County.

Lakewood wins pivotal Game 3

September 11, 2010

The Lakewood BlueClaws scored three runs in the first inning Saturday, and they never looked back. The BlueClaws defeated the Hickory Crawdads 6-0 in the third game of the Divisional Round of the South Atlantic League playoffs.

The BlueClaws won the series 2-1.

Lakewood catcher Sebastian Valle dealt the first blow with a two run homer in the bottom of the first inning and was followed later by an RBI single from third baseman Jeremy Barnes to make it 3-0.

Lakewood added a run in the fourth, before two unearned runs in the 8th
came in to account for the 6-0 final.

Bunker Gets Win No. 4

September 11, 2010

It’s been 11 years since Bunker Hill started a regular season 4-0. The Bears broke that streak Friday against the Fred T. Foard Tigers doing what they do best — running the ball and eating the clock. The Bears defeated the Tigers 34-13 at Foard and improved to 4-0 for the first time since in 12 seasons.

Bunker Hill (4-0) gained 254 yards of total offense, and 164 of those yards came from junior running back Reggie Davis, who had 19 carries.

N-C Overcomes Turnovers

September 11, 2010

It seemed like an undefeated Newton-Conover on Friday wanted to give the game to the St. Stephens and deny coach Nick Bazzle a 100th career win. The Red Devils committed four turnovers in the first half — three lost fumbles and an interception, but they rebounded in the second half en route to a 28-14 win at St. Stephens.

“There could have been a little more shine on it,” Bazzle said. “It’s not that big of a deal to me. I have coaches that prepare just as hard as I do. I’m in a football place, and they love football in this community, and you’re supposed to win at Newton-Conover.”

Bandys Battles To Tie

September 10, 2010

The Bandys Trojans battled the North Lincoln Knights to a 0-0 ties Thursday at Bandys. North Lincoln is the No. 16 2-A team in the state. Bandys coach Cliff Mayer said he was proud of his team because the Trojans were without three starters.

The Trojans are 2-3-1 overall and 0-1-0 in conference play.

R-S CENTRAL 1, FRED T. FOARD 1
Fred T. Foard and R-S Central were tied at halftime Thursday, and that’s how they ended the match.

Both teams scored a goal in the second half to earn the draw. Nick Bolick scored the lone goal for Foard.

Bunker Hill Goes For Fourth Straight Win

September 10, 2010

The Bunker Hill Bears are looking for something they haven’t found in 11 years — a 4-0 start to a football season. The last time the Bears went 4-0 to start a season, Bill Clinton was the president.

That thought, however, is not even in the players’ heads.

“I don’t think that is registering with any of the kids, and we are just preparing for our next opponent,” Bunker Hill coach Travis Conner said. “We are just going to keep plowing forward.”

The Bears go for their fourth straight win Friday at Fred T. Foard.

BlueClaws beat Crawdads in opener

September 8, 2010

Hickory and Lakewood were locked in a battle Wednesday during the first two innings of the playoff opener at L.P. Frans Stadium. Hickory starter Neil Ramirez held the Northern Division’s top team scoreless through two innings, but things quickly unraveled in the third.

“Momentum is a funny thing,” said Bill Richardson, Crawdads manager. 

N-C soccer gets first win

September 8, 2010

The Newton-Conover Red Devils earned their first soccer win of the season Wednesday. The Red Devils won 1-0 at Maiden. Chandler Johnson scored the match's lone goal in the 26th minute, and Eli Cordes earned the assist.

Newton-Conover is 1-0 against the Catawba Valley 2A and 1-7 overall. Maiden dropped to 1-5 overall on 0-1 in conference play.

BUNKER HILL 4, EAST BURKE 3
Terry Aviles led the Bears in a conference win Wednesday at home against the Cavaliers. Aviles scored one of the Bears’ four goals and assisted on two more.

Lenoir-Rhyne suffered its first loss of the season Saturday, and it wants to bounce back this week with a win at home.

The Bears play the Davidson Wildcats at 7 p.m. Saturday in Hickory. Lenoir-Rhyne is 1-1 this season, and Davidson is 0-1 after a 20-10 season-opening loss to Georgetown. The Bears lost 20-17 on Saturday to Concord.
