August 26, 2011

In a match-up of two rookie quarterbacks likely to start for their respective teams this season, Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton stole the show.

Dalton completed 11-of-17 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown, leading the Bengals to their first victory of the preseason.

Panthers’ rookie Cam Newton played through the third quarter of Thursday’s game, completing 6-of-19 passes for 75 yards. He also rushed for a team-high 49 yards on four carries.

Newton opened the game’s scoring at the 6:27 mark in the first quarter with a 16-yard run. The score gave the Panthers a 7-0 lead.

After dropping a season-opener against Forbush, the Fred T. Foard volleyball team is on a roll.

The Lady Tigers (4-1, 1-0) won their fourth straight volleyball match Thursday with a 25-14, 25-16, 25-13 win against the visiting Lincolnton Lady Wolves.

“This was the best we’ve played this season,” said Foard coach Alison Yount. “They played like a real volleyball team. I was proud of them. They did a really great job.”

Leading the way for the Lady Tigers were Olivia Purvis and Madison Hayes, who had seven kills each.
