West Lincoln - Fred T. Foard
September 12, 2014
First Half Before
Weather Postponement

Wayne Howard

Charles Mack George, the leading rusher in the Southern District 7 Conference, ran for 215 yards and two touchdowns, but it wasn't enough as West Lincoln failed to catch up to Fred T. Foard in the second half of a game stopped at halftime Friday because of lightning.  The two teams began the second half at 6 PM Saturday at West Lincoln and West Lincoln, trailing 28-14 at halftime, could get no closer than a touchdown deficit.  

Daniel Schezny ran 50 yards for a TD and the extra point kick by Ivan Cavillo made it 28-21, but Jacob Schmidt, who rushed for 147 yards and three touchdowns, scored on a one-yard run on Foard's next possession to establish a 35-21 lead and it never got any closer.  Foard scored on a 12-yard run by Matt Williams with 6:58 left in the game and the lead stretched to 42-21.  West Lincoln scored another TD when Hunter Turner scored on a 58-yard pass play from George and that made the final score 42-28.  

Schezny also rushed for over a hundred yards in the game (105) and the Rebels had a total of 337 yards rushing, but Foard, which had slightly less rushing yards, completed 11 of 17 passes while West only had 3 completions on 11 throws.  

West Lincoln will open conference play at Lincolnton on Friday, while Fred T. Foard will put its 2-2 record up against the still undefeated Freedom Patriots from Morganton on September 26th.  The game will be played at Fred T. Foard.  The Tigers have next Friday off.  

Freedom and Newton-Conover decided not to continue their game from Friday night, also stopped at halftime because of lightning so that one goes in the record books as a 13-13 tie.  The Red Devils are also undefeated this year.  They have next Friday off.  

For anyone who doesn't already know, the Lincolnton at East Gaston game was suspended just four minutes into the first quarter Friday night.  They'll resume play at 5 o'clock Monday afternoon.  East Lincoln was leading Forestview 26-20 when their game was stopped with 2:56 remaining in the 3rd quarter.  They'll pick up from there Monday night at 7 at David Clark Stadium.  If the weather is bad Monday, the game could be rescheduled for Tuesday night.  Both the Mustangs and the Jaguars have open dates on their schedule for next Friday.

Cherryville's game at North Gaston was also stopped at halftime because of lightning with the Wildcats leading the Ironmen 7-6.  They'll resume play Monday night at 7:30 at Dallas.  

North Lincoln was not scheduled to play Friday night, but the Knights will host Bessemer City in another non-conference game this coming Friday.

Maiden held on for a 52-48 win over St. Stephens on Friday.  The Blue Devils will host South Caldwell this coming Friday.
