It was an ugly game by both teams. While Foard committed five turnovers, West Lincoln also struggled, throwing an interception and fumbling the ball three times, losing two of them.
The Rebels (2-1) took a 6-0 lead in the first half behind an 8-yard run from Evan Lopes. It was Lopesâ€™ lone rush of the game.
Rain in the Catawba County area forced several postponements of Friday night high school football games.
The first cancelled contest was a match-up of unbeaten teams between the Bandys Trojans (2-0) and East Lincoln Mustangs (2-0), which also features coach Randy Lowmanâ€™s 300th game as head coach. The game was postponed to Saturday at 7 p.m. due to power issues at the field.
