With the season coming

high note. Mineral Springs

second-half goal and held
on late to win the game 1-0.
The Bulldogs started
off the game aggressively
getting off multiple shots
on goal but the Hanes
goalie was up to the task
and stopped them all. With

in overtime
The Vikings of North Forsyth seemed
to have a victory in hand during the final
minutes of their game against Asheboro.
With a six point lead with under three
minutes on the clock they only had to stop
the Blue Comets offense one last time to
achieve victory. Asheboro not only tied
the game with seconds left on the clock
they won the game outright after going
into overtime.
Asheboro received the opening kickoff
and initially was driving deep into Viking
territory until quarterback Jamel Carl was
intercepted by comerback Semaj Transou.
North Forsyth puts together a productive
drive of their own all the way into the Blue
Comet redzone. Viking quarterback
Richard Ryce connected with Brandon
Davis put North Forsyth up 6-0.
The Blue Comets came right back on
their next possession and scored a touch
down of their own. Carl atoned for his
earlier interception and hit his receiver
down the sideline for the tying score.
North Forsyth looked to go back on
top later in the quarter as they drove deep
into Blue Comet territory once again but
this time failed to convert. With their
offense still clicking, Asheboro attempted
to put points on the board before the half
but was intercepted once again.
As the end of the Brst half neared the
Vikings had a golden opportunity to take
the lead back. An intentional grounding
call pulled them out of the red zone and

The Bobcats are looking to approve on their 2-6
I record. They were defeated by Northwest Guilford
last week by the score of 20-8.
Glenn head coach Stephen Herring says they
have been getting better offensively even though
their record may not reflect as such.
"We have gotten little bit better every game but
we just need to make sure we stop shooting our
selves in the foot offensively," Herring said. "We
have to put some points up on the board to help our
defense out because our defense has been pretty con
sistent and steady throughout."
