FOOTBALL ROUND-UP: Maiden edges East Burke

The Maiden football team continue to stay near the top of the Catawba Valley 2A standings with a 14-0 victory against East Burke.

The Cavaliers were without running back Larry Clark, who ruptured his spleen in the week prior against West Caldwell.

South Iredell 24, Bandys 13

The Vikings continued to remain on top of the Catawba Valley 2A standings with a victory Friday in Catawba against the Trojans.

South Iredell (8-1, 5-0) took a 16-6 halftime lead behind a 39-yard touchdown run by LaChaston Smith and a one-yard plunge from Eythan Kramm.

Bandys lone score of the first half came on some trickery when Keaton Allen threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to tight end Zach Huffstetler.

A 74-yard interception by Jacolby Everhart in the second half, though, helped the Vikings gain some distance and put the game away.

Trojan quarterback Anthony Toscano threw a 15-yard strike to Colton Medlin for the final score of the contest late in the fourth quarter.

On the ground, Devan Davis had 97 yards on 30 carries for Bandys (5-4, 2-3).

Bunker Hill 35, West Caldwell 7

Justin Lynch ran for 126 yards and four touchdowns to help the Bears pick up their first CVAC victory of the season Friday in Claremont.

Lynch had scores of one, four, 19 and 13 yards in the contest. Fellow Bunker Hill running back Jon Sweet added 146 rushing yards.

The only other score for the Bears (5-4, 1-4) came from the arm of Colton Chapman, who threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Casey King.

The lone score by the Warriors (0-9, 0-5) came on a 57-yard run from Robert Caldwell.

Hickory 21, Hibriten 13

Matt Williams threw three touchdown passes, helping the Red Tornadoes (5-4, 2-2) move into third place in the Northwestern 3A/4A conference.

After falling behind 7-0 on a 14-yard touchdown run from Hibriten's Devell Maxwell, Williams connected with Ta'Shawn Byrd to make it a 7-7 tie.

Williams would connect on two more touchdown passes on the next two Red Tornado possessions — both to Time Abernathy from 10 and 22 yards, respectively.

The Panthers (5-4, 2-2) closed the deficit to eight points with a five-yard run from Zac Walker, but could get no closer.
