Panthers weather the storm

September 26, 2011

After a torrential downpour drowned Carolina on Sunday, the sun broke through the clouds just in time for the Panthers.

With 6:44 left in the Panthers’ final quarter against Jacksonville, quarterback Cam Newton engineered a five-play, 55-yard scoring drive to help give Carolina a 16-10 lead. Newton connected with tight end Greg Olsen for a 16-yard touchdown play, and the rookie quarterback found his favorite target again for the ensuing two-point conversion.

Trojans score late, beat Red Devils

September 24, 2011

With the game tied 13-13 and 8:30 left to play, the Bandys Trojans began to march. And march. And march.

Nineteen plays, 80 yards and 6:21 later, Bandys’ Dominque Young rushed five yards into the end zone to help give the Trojans a 20-13 lead, and a victory over the visiting Newton-Conover Red Devils.

“That is what we have to do,” Bandys coach Randy Lowman said of the long late-game drive. “Our guys have figured that out. They know we can’t rush. We can’t hurry. We have to try to methodically, move the chains, move the chains, move the chains.”

Ruffner's goal, defense give Tigers shutout

September 23, 2011

A goal by Kenan Ruffner and strong defensive play allowed the Fred T. Foard soccer team to pick up its eight win of the season and sixth shutout.

“Coming into tonight’s game we knew Hibriten was coming off of a draw with St. Stephens on Monday,” said Tigers coach Scottie Goforth. “We wanted to make sure we took advantage of our possession and take care of the ball. I feel like the boys did that really well.”

Ruffner’s goal came at the 24th minute on a corner kick by Khong Lo. The kick went in front of the net and was driven in on a header by Ruffner.

Taylor Sigmon, Jesse Story and Chelsey Queen combined for 45 kills, leading Bandys to a five-game road win of their own, 25-22, 22-25, 25-17, 13-25, 15-10.

September 21, 2011

When two of the best volleyball teams in the Northwestern Conference took center stage Tuesday, it was anyone’s guess at what would happen.

After four thrilling games played until the very last points, it was Fred T. Foard getting the better of St. Stephens. The Lady Tigers handed the Lady Indians their first conference loss, 26-24, 25-20, 20-25, 26-24.

“Holy cow,” said Foard coach Alison Yount. “There are no words. Cardiac arrest. I think I had a heart attack about 17 times on the bench, at least.”
