Walkertown wide receiver Andre Walker prepares to hbul in the game's first
BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY
The high school football season is
quickly coming to a close. All teams want
to end the year on a high note and carry
that momentum into the offseason. When
the Walkertown Wolfpack faced off
against Mt. Airy last week, they did just
that with a 20-8 victory.
The Granite Bears started the game off
very strong with an opening drive that
focused on the run game and resulted in a
juggling catch in the end zone. After the
conversion, Mt. Airy led 8-0 midway
through the first quarter.
Walkertown looked to answer immedi
ately on their first'drive. They drove the
ball all the way inside of the 10 yard line
of Mt. Airy but a brought it back.
Taking a calculated risk, Walkertown head
coach, Chris Cannon went for it on fourth
down later in the drive. The move paid off
as quarterback Owen Renslow threw a
touchdown pass to Andre Walker, who ran
a beautiful stutter and go route. The deficit
was trimmed to two after the failed conver
Later in the quarter, Mt. Airy was on
the attack again when their quarterback
fumbled while scrambling, giving posses
sion back to the Wolfpack. Unfortunately
for the Granite Bears, their starting quar
terback was injured on the play and was
unable to return. That play swung the
momentum in favor of the Wolfpack for
the remainder of the game.

trend continued against Reagan last week. On a chilly /m
Thursday evening, the Titans turned up the heat in the second
half and won going away 43-20.
After stopping Reagan on their opening possession, the
Titans took the ball right down the field. Following a fake punt
that propelled the drive down inside the five yard line, the Titans came away with a field
goal on the drive to take the early lead.
The Raiders answered with a touchdown of their own later in the quarter when fresh
man running back DJ. Moyer punched it in from six yards out to put Reagan up 7-3.
Reagan attempted to catch the Titans off guard by kicking an onside kick but the ball
bounced out of bounds setting them up with great field position
to start the drive.

went on the attack but penalties seemed to stall the drive. They
overcame their mental mistakes when quarterback Denaje

season strong against
BY TIMOTHY RAMSEY
The Parkland Mustangs are sitting on a
record of 4-5 so far this season. They will
face off against the War Eagles of Davie
County tonight in an attempt to end the
season with a .500 record. Davie County
holds a record of 2-6 and look to salvage
their season with a win.
The Mustangs are hoping to bounce
back from a devastating defeat last week
against North Davidson by the score of 42

said North Davidson came out and played
sound football against his team. He said
the North Davidson running backs ran
hard and his linebackers were not prepared
Davie County took on area juggernaut
Mt. Tabor last week. They were soundly
defeated 52-7 in the contest. Besides last
week's loss to the Spartans and a loss ear
lier this season to Dudley of Greensboro,
the War Eagles have been competitive in
their games. They have just not had
enough in the end to get over the hump.
