High School Football

Wayne Howard

This is week 3 of high school football, and there are several players who have had star performances in the first two weeks.  

Tyler Mizell of East Lincoln has thrown seven touchdown passes in the Mustangs' first two games. Against Hibriten, he tossed three TD passes to his favorite target from last year, Markell Clark. A fourth was caught by Jackson Beam. Mizell completed 15 of his 21 passes for 196 yds and had no interceptions. Last week against Forestview, he completed 17 of 22 for 241 yards and three touchdowns. Riley Shropshire, Jackson Beam and Keandre Walker caught those. Mizell also ran for two TDs.

West Lincoln's Mason Avery is far and away tops in rushing in the area. He tacked on another 101 yards rushing last week against Cherryville and ran for three touchdowns. The first week against North Lincoln, he ran for 217 yards and four touchdowns, and returned a fumble 26 yards for another.

Ben Mauney from Burns has tossed six touchdown passes in the Bulldogs' two wins. He has completed 33 of his 41 throws.

Wesley Thompson from Maiden has completed five touchdown passes, including two last week in the defensive struggle that saw the Blue Devils lose to Watauga 23-19 after leading 23-8 going into the fourth quarter.

This week's schedule has East Lincoln at Lincolnton.  The Mustangs are expected gy most to dominate, but the Wolves, who came from a 10-point deficit last week to score on their last two possessions and beat North Lincoln 20-17 will play hard against what for some is their most hated rival.  

West Lincoln will be heavily favored to take a third victory over Fred T. Ford in what is called 'the Battle of Hog Hill.'  Ford is 0-2.  

North Lincoln will try to get its first victory at Central Cabarrus.

Burns will visit Kings Mountain in one of two big games in Cleveland County.  Both the Bulldogs and Mountaineers are 2-0.  The other big game there has Shelby visiting Crest.  

Cherryville, after a thumping by West Lincoln last week, will travel to Blacksburg, SC.

Another 49-yard TD run by Blackburn and another two-point EP try by Bostic made it 16-0 Then Bostic ran 58 yards for a TD and also scored the 2-pt extra points and West led 24-0 at the end of the first quarter. Another TD run by Bostic, this time for 80 yards and a Lucas Blackburn EP kick made it 31-0 at the half. Grae Ponder had a 53-yd TD run in the third period and Gus Avery scored on an 18-yd run in the fourth; when Blackburn kicked the EP after that one, the final score became West Lincoln 44, Foard 0.
