East Lincoln 35, Tuscola 7 There was no problem hearing this game on the radio or online. WLON had told us they'd carry the Lincolnton game (and never told us they'd changed) but they were at East Lincoln. As we had previously reported, you could also hear the game on YouTube.
The kickoff was delayed a half hour until after 6:30. East Lincoln kicked off to Tuscola. The Mountaineers went three and out. A short punt gave East the ball in good field position. Two first down runs by Christopher Daley II moved the ball inside the 20; then Tyler Mizell ran 10 yards for a TD and Christopher Mileta's kick made it 7-0 with 7:52 left in the first period.
On their second possession, Tuscola crossed midfield into East Lincoln territory. They made it to the East 22 but on a 4th & 7, they tried a double reverse and Marcel Johnson made the tackle in the backfield. With three minutes left in the first quarter, East took over on downs.
On first down, Daley ran deep into Mountaineers territory, but a penalty took away a part of the yardage. East ended up with the ball at the Tuscola 30, but on first down, a loss moved it back the 37. A pass to Jackson Beam got it to the 30. Daley then ran to the 10-yard line and on first and goal he made it inside the five. Mizell then ran four yards for another Mustangs TD with 11 seconds left in the first quarter. Mileta kicked another EP and it was East Lincoln 14, Tuscola 0.
In the second quarter, when Tuscola had to punt, East started at their own 41. It took just one play, a 59-yd pass to Keandre Walker, to make it 20-0. Mileta's EP kick made it 21-0.
Tuscola drove inside the East Lincoln five-yard line, but on four plays, they only got to the one. Parker Davis made a tackle for loss on the third down play. East took over with just over a minute left in the first half and ran out the clock. East led 21-0 at halftime.
Tuscola kicked off to East to start the second half. They didn't waste any time. Markell Clark ran 37 yds for another TD and the EP kick made it 28-0. Tuscola scored late in the third period to make it 28-7.
In the fourth quarter Mizell passed 11 yds to Markell Clark for another TD and Mileta's kick made it 35-7.
The Mustangs, still unbeaten, will host Ledford, 28-7 winners Thursday night over Northwest Cabarrus next Friday at East Lincoln.
Monroe 55, Lincolnton 7 nfhsnetwork.com carried the LHS game last week--but the camera at Randleman wasn't working, they had no announcers, and they didn't update the score; so if you, like I, paid to watch it, you didn't get anything for your money. NFHS coverage of the West Lincoln @ Hendersonville game was crystal clear...no announcers, but you could see the game. Theyshowed the LHS @ Monroe game Thursday night--and it was clear if not enjoyable. The game was not on the radio. Lincolnton kicked off to Monroe. They drove for a TD and led 7-0. When the Wolves couldn't move the ball, the Redhawks passed for another TD and led 14-0.
Early in the second period, Treylen Bost ran 65 yards for the Wolves and Peyton Rangel's EP kick cut the lead to 14-7. With 10:19 left in the first half, Monroe ran for what would have been another TD, but it was called back on a holding penalty. But they scored on the next play and with 9:46 left until halftime, they led 21-7.. Another Redhawks TD with just one minute left until halftime made it 28-7.
Things didn't improve early in the second half--in the third period, Monroe scored twice to lead 41-7, then added another TD and two EPs early in the 4th for a 49-7 lead, then one more late in the fourth for a 55-7 final score.
LHS ends the season with a 6-6 record.
Burns 42, Shelby 0 This game will be on YouTube (ktcbroadcasting.com/Shelby@Burns). It starts at 7 PM. We were told there'd be video of the game, too. Shelby took the opening kickoff but had to punt. On their first possession, the Bulldogs scored on a 28-yd run by Ryan Thompson. Ansley Camacho's EP kick made it 7-0. Then Burns recovered a Shelby fumble and Thompson ran for another TD and the kick made it 14-0. Shelby drove to the Burns 11 but turned the ball over on downs, and the Bulldogs drove for another score. Thompson ran 8 yds for this one. Camacho's kick made it 21-0. Then Kamari Surratt recovered another Lions fumble and Jeremiah Norris ran 13 yds for another score and the EP kick made it 28-0 at the half.
IN the third quarter, Thompson had a long run that set up a 2-yd TD run by Cahari Haynes and the EP kick made it 35-0.
In the fourth quarter, Lamont Wilson's 60-yd TD run and the EP kick made it 42-0.
The Bulldogs will host Salisbury, 48-13 winners over Pine Lake Prep, in the third round next Friday.
Crest 42, Oak Grove 15 You can hear it on WOHS (1390AM, 101.5FM) if you live close to Shelby. It will also be online at http://www.ktcbroadcasting.com/. Crest took the opening kickoff and drove for a score and a 7-0 lead. Crest drove deep into Oak Grove territory twice, the second time inside the 20, but didn't score. Then Cameron Littlejohn intercepted an Oak Grove pass and gave the Chargers the ball at the Oak Grove 28; and Ny'tavious Huskey threw a 28 yd pass to Javarius Green for a TD with less than a minute left in the first half. Derek Mitchell rushed for a 2-pt conversion and the Chargers led 15-0.
Aiden Carson with a 50-yd TD run in the third period and the EP kick by Nick Sanchez made it 22-0, but Oak Grove scored and made a two-point EP try to cut it to 22-8. Then Huskey threw a pass to Aj Adams for another Crest TD and Sanchez kicked the EP to make it 29-8. Oak Grove scored again to cut the lead to 29-15. Another touchdown pass by the Chargers made it 35-15. With six minutes left in the game, Anton Lewis ran for a TD and the EP kick made it 42-15 and that was the final score.
Crest will play at South Point game next Friday.
Bunker Hill 41, Community School of Davidson 40 Game started at 7 PM. It's was supposed to be on nfhs.com but they had camera trouble (again???).

With three minutes left in the first period, Cole Lineberger ran 7 yds for a TD and the EP kick made it 14-0.

Jason Willis, Jr. ran for a Bears TD, but CSD scored again before halftime and it was 26-21, CSD leading, at the half.
Five minutes into the second half, the Spartans scored again and led 32-21. Willis then ran for a Bears TD and cut the lead to 32-27. Another TD late in the third period and a two-point EP try gave CSD a 40-27 lead. Willis ran for another TD and the EP kick cut that to 40-34, then another, and this time the EP kick gave the Bears the lead again 41-40.
Both teams' defenses had trouble stopping the other all night, but the Bears got the stop they needed with one minute to go when CSD failed to make a first down on a 4th and 3 and Bunker Hill got the ball back near midfield. They didn't quite run out the clock (CSD called timeouts) and had to punt, but they got the win 41-40. Bunker Hill will play the winner of Friday's Maiden vs Mt. Pleasant game next Friday night.
South Point @ Greensboro Dudley South Point kicked off to Dudley, but the Panthers passed and Aiden Ramirez scored on a 29-yard pick-six and the Raiders led 6-0. The EP try was no good.

Cam Medlock ran for a TD and Patrick Blee threw a 22-yd pass to Dawson Tobin to cut the lead to 21-20, but Ducley scored again and with a two-point conversion led 29-20.

[We apologize for an occasional error in our reports. Readers can only imagine the difficulty trying to keep up with six footbll games and two soccer matches all happening at once. Friday night will be easier: just two games.]
Two soccer games involving local teams were scheduled for Thursday.
Asheoro 1, East Lincoln 0 We were told Thursday afternoon, it will be played even though it's raining. Hickory moved their playoff game up to Wednesday and beat Hibriten 4-0. Nobody scored in the first half, but the Blue Comets scoree early in the second for a 1-0 lead. [Some posted wrong information saying East scored twice; they did not.] The final score was Asheboro 1, East Lincoln 0. The Mustangs' season ends with a record of 18-5-3.
Lincoln Charter 3, Newton-Conover 1 Two Eagles goals early gave them a 2-0 lead 14 minutes into the first half. The Red Devils scored to cut the lead to 2-1; then another Eagles goal at the 31st minute made it 3-1. That lead held up as nobody scored in the second half. The Eagles win moves them into the West Region championship game at Owen High School in Black Mountain on Tuesday (Nov. 15th).
