Two days, two weather delays and two round-trip bus trips didn’t turn out well for Chapel Hill last week at Southeast Raleigh, where the home-standing Bulldogs gained their first win with a 66-20 victory over the Tigers.
Multiple lightning strikes Thursday at Baker Stadium forced a postponement until Friday, with the Bulldogs leading 13-6 and 9:40 remaining in the second quarter. After play resumed Friday, Southeast Raleigh (1-3) led at halftime only 25-13 over the Tigers (2-2) before erupting for 41 second-half points.
The Bulldogs finished with 695 total yards as seven players combined for 10 touchdowns. Southeast Raleigh quarterback Dylan Parham, an N.C. State recruit, finished 17 of 25 for 272 yards and four touchdowns.
Orange 35, Cummings 19: Bryse Wilson, an all-conference linebacker (and baseball player) filling in for injured Orange quarterback Jackson Schmid, threw for 314 yards and three touchdowns, rushed for another, blocked a punt and recorded an interception as the Panthers defeated Burlington’s Cummings High 35-19 Friday night at Auman Stadium. Wilson threw to Eryk Brandon-Dean for touchdown plays of 66 and 64 yards, and he hit Drew Lemaster for a 66-yard catch-and-run for another touchdown. Lemaster also ran in a TD from 1 yard out.
Northwood 63, Carrboro 0: The Chargers’ Montel Goods ran for seven touchdowns on plays of 23, 6, 36, 2, 5, 5 and 12 yards in the shutout.
Riverside 19, Cedar Ridge 13: Down 13-0 early, the Red Wolves tied the game at 13-all with less than 5 minutes to play on a Dahnte Scott 2-yard plunge. The Pirates got back in front 51 seconds later on Kaligah Murrell’s 47-yard touchdown run with 4:04 left. Cedar Ridge had a chance to tie or go ahead, but their final drive stalled with 30 seconds remaining.
Bartlett Yancey 41, East Chapel Hill 7: East scored first on an 11-yard run by Amier Alston but it was all downhill from there for the Wildcats (1-3), who lost seven turnovers. The Buccaneers rolled up 457 yards of total offense and are now 2-0 for the second time this century.
Three who mattered
Baxter Sobolewski, Chapel Hill: The junior broke off a 33-yard touchdown run to tie the game at SE Raleigh 6-6.
Peyton Pappas, Cedar Ridge: Despite going 0-6 in his first six passing attempts, and only one completion in the first half, Pappas kept his composure to go 13 of 15 for 154 yards and a TD in the second half.
Dylan Mazurek, Northwood: He completed 9 of 15 passes for 174 yards without an interception, preventing Carrboro from zeroing in on Northwood’s running game.
Cody Evans, Orange: With three receptions for 92 yards, he gave Orange a badly needed vertical threat.
