Trailing Bandys 14-10 at halftime, Maiden wasted no time taking control of the game in the second half.

“We were getting the ball in the second half, and we just had to make some plays,” said Maiden coach Brian Brown.

Maiden’s Will Jenkins was the first Blue Devil to answer his coach’s challenge to “make some plays.” He returned the second half kick-off 53 yards. Four plays later, Jenkins raced 36 yards into the end zone to score his second touchdown of the night and give the Blue Devils the lead for good.

St. Stephens used a 56-yard touchdown run by Matt Williams and a momentum swing going into half-time to collect a 56-36 win over North Buncombe on Friday.

The win marks the Indians’ third in as many weeks and sets up St. Stephens (3-5, 1-2) to take on 3a rival Fred T. Foard next week.
Trailing 20-14 in the second quarter, Williams touchdown run lifted the Indians to a 21-20 lead to end the opening half.

After Jon Sweet gave St. Stephens a 28-20 lead, the Indians put together back-to-back scoring drives that both ended with Williams crossing the goal line.
