Burns 13-12
Kings Mountain's Mountaineers
kept their state playoff goal in sight
Friday night by defeating defend-
ing state 3A champion Burns 13-
12 in a muddy Southwestern 3-A
Conference encounter at KM's
John Gamble Stadium.
The victory, KM's first over
Burns since 1989, gives the
Mountaineers a 3-0 SWC record
and 6-1 overall mark heading into
a first place battle Friday night at
Shelby. Burns dropped to 2-2 in the
SWC and 4-4 overall.
For the second straight week, the
Mountaineers came from behind in
the fourth quarter. Chris Wallace's
second field goal of the night - a
19-yarder - gave the Mountaineers
their 13-12 advantage with 3:20 re-
maining, and then Coach Ron
Massey's defense rose to the occa-
sion to stop a Bulldog fourth and
one attempt at the KM 32 with 32
seconds remaining.
"This was a big win for our
kids," said Massey. "I was happy
for our kids to win this football
game. When you beat a team the
calibre of Burns and the tradition
of Burns it has to be good for your
program, and having to come back
to beat them was even better."
Both teams played well even
though the muddy field hampered
their offensive efforts. The
Mountaineers rushed for 187 yards
and hit 4 of 10 passes for 60 more,

Shelby's line averages well over

have a couple of linemen in the
