Football got an early start this week thanks to the hurricane. Several games were played Wednesday night; others were moved up to Thursday night while a few will still be played Friday as originally scheduled.

The West Lincoln JVs improved to 3-0 with an easy win over the East Burke JVs 33-0.

The East Lincoln JVs lost to the East Gaston JVs 27-7 Wednesday.

In varsity games Wednesday, the Fred T. Foard Tigers got their first win of the season after three losses as they bet St. Stephens 38-22. The Tigers built an 11-0 first quarter lead and led 11-8 at halftime before the Indians cut the lead to 18-14 after three quarters. Foard scored 20 more points in the final period for the victory. Foard will host Patton next Friday while St. Stephens will host Freedom.

1 - Carolina Trust Bank

In a see-saw battle of unbeaten teams, Weddington topped Crest 31-21. The Chargers will host Forestview next Friday.

Highland Tech improved to 3-0 for the first time in school history with a 50-6 win over Christ the King. The Rams will host Community School of Davidson next Friday.

In Thursday night games, all three Lincoln County teams who played were winners. 

Nakathon Phansook ran for 172 yards and three touchdowns as the West Lincoln Rebels improved to 4-0 with a 42-6 win over East Burke. Brendon Ikard picked off three East Burke passes returning one of them 34 yards for a touchdown. Quarterback Seth Willis had a 78-complete a 23-yard scoring pass to Jessie Hatcher. The Rebels will open South Fork 2A conference play next Friday at North Lincoln.

Running back Clayton Cribb rushed for 101 yards on 21 carries and scored two touchdowns as North Lincoln scored 20 unanswered points in the fourth quarter after spotting Bessemer City a 6-0 lead early in the second half. Jake Soorus scored on a 43-yard run with 1:27 left in the game to seal the victory. North Lincoln plays at home against West Lincoln Friday while Bessemer City plays at Mountain Island Charter.

Sidney Dollar caught three passes for 104 yards and scored on an 84-yard run while filling in at quarterback as the East Lincoln Mustangs trounced East Gaston 49-9. Cole Barber scored on a 12-yd TD pass and ran 11 yards for another score. Chase Jones ran for two scores and had over 160 yards passing including two touchdown passes. The Mustangs will play their first conference game next Friday at Lake Norman Charter.

Burns played another come-from-behind game, but this one ended with the Bulldogs winning a thriller, a 56-55 track meet at Hendersonville.  The Bulldogs play at Ashbrook next Friday.

South Point beat Stuart Cramer 33-7.  The Red Raiders take next week off before playing Ashbrook the following week.

Newton-Conover took a whooping from undefeated Hibriten 63-19.  The Red Devils will play at Lincolnton next Friday.

When you score six touchdowns in a game, there's little way anyone else can compete for the honor of Player of the Week.  Jamal Littlejohn carried the ball only seven times in the first half of last week's first win for the Lincolnton Wolves and scored on five of those carries.  He was an easy choice for the First Federal Savings Bank Player of the Week, an honor presented each week by the team of Tim Johnson and Ken Link, who do the Lincoln County games on WLON Radio.

The Wolves have this week off before hosting Newton-Conover in their first South Fork Conference game next Friday.
