JV Beats Tabor
The Davie JV football team blazed out of the starting blocks and beat visiting Mt. Tabor 36-24 on Oct. 7, an awesome bounce back from a seven-point loss to Reagan the week before.
The War Eagles body-slammed Tabor 22-0 in the first quarter. “We played well,” coach Perry Long said. “We weren’t intimidated.”
Davie will enter Thursday’s game at West Forsyth with records of 3-2 overall and 2-1 in the conference.
2 Games In 5 Days For Davie
The varsity football game Friday at Tabor was postponed until Oct. 11, so the War Eagles will play two games in five days. Friday is Davie’s homecoming against West Forsyth. Kickoff at War Eagle Stadium will be at 7 p.m.
44 For McDaniel
Annika McDaniel shot an 8-over 44 and finished ninth overall in Davie’s golf match at Maple Chase on Oct. 4. Emerson Vanzant was second for Davie at 45. The CPC meet saw Reagan take first, followed by West Forsyth and Davie. The trio has finished in that order in each CPC meet.
3-Way Tie For 1st
The regular season ended in a three-way tie for first after the varsity Pinebrook Trojans ripped through Mocksville 42-6 on Oct. 9. The Trojans, Bulldogs and Raiders finished in a tie.
Brandon Forrest scored three of the four times he carried the ball while rushing for 138 yards. Reynolds Tomlinson and Carson Nicholls also scored for Pinebrook.
Camden Gioeli had five carries for 50 yards, four tackles and recovered a fumble. Carter Cornett, Jason Riddle and Henry Hines had four tackles each, and Cornett recovered a fumble. Pinebrook got solid blocking from Parker Johnson, Easton Baune and Glen Green.
