Surry BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY THE CHRONICLE The Carver Yellow Jackets will face off against the North Surry Greyhounds this afternoon. The Yellow Jackets are seeking back-to-back victories after defeating Surry Central 30-8. North Surry is coming off of a bye week. The Greyhounds want to shake off their last game, which was a loss against West Stokes with a victory against Carver. The Yellow Jackets are coming off of a decisive victory last week against Surry Central, which was their first win of the year. Carver JV head coach Walter Black says he was most impressed with the teamwork his guys 1 displayed. He says their offensive con I cepts are very simple and his guys exe I ciited very well. While talking about last week's game, Black said, "D'Angelo McMillan played well, and he is the guy most peo ple will remember, but I love the way the team contributed to his success. They did a great job as a team last night." Black continued by saying, 'Tm happy we came away with the win, but at the same time I feel like we have to improve defensively. I think defense usually comes quickly but every week people will try new things to defeat your defense. North Surry is going to be very good, so our defense is going to have to be very disciplined, and we have to fig- ? ure out what we are going to take from them. We can't take away everything, so we have to figure out what they do well and try to take that away from them." The Greyhounds' last game against West Stokes was a hard-fought defeat. ^ See Carver on B2 ^ !>??>% hii imi mm Members of the Carver receiving corps practice their formation in prepara tion of tonight's game against North Surry. f ??'
