All the Rowan County High School Football teams played Friday night, with a few surprises. Salisbury got its first win of the year, downing South Iredell 41-31. The Hornets started rough, spotting the Vikings with a 13-0 lead, one on a fumbled punt return that set up the second TD for South Iredell. But Salisbury rebounded with a long drive and turned the game their way with a go ahead touchdown that followed an interception by Salisbury’s Keyaun Rice. Antwond Glenn rushed for 135 yards and two touchdowns and Quarterback Riley Myers passed for a touchdown, going 3 for 4 with 113 yards, and ran for 72 yards and couple of TD’s.
North Rowan snapped a two game losing streak with authority, blasting visiting Providence Grovss 29-3. Once again Jareke Chambers provided most of the offense, scoring on three long runs, and ended up with 174 rushing yards. The Cavaliers upped their record to 3-2
Carson ran all over East Rowan for a 48-21 win. Darren Isom rushed for four touchdowns and Brandon Sloop added three. The two Seniors combined for 284 yards. East’s Sam Wyrick passed for 239 yards and a touchdown to twin brother Seth but it wasn’t nearly enough for East to offset the Carson onslaught.
South Rowan was stubborn before falling to unbeaten Concord 35-21 at Landis. Concord Running back, Rocky Reid, led the Spider offense with 215 yards rushing and four touchdowns. South was able to score 21 fourth quarter points and were only down 14-0 at halftime. The Raiders at now 2-2 for the season, 1-1 in the SPC.
West Rowan struggled offensively at times, but still was able to defeat Northwest Cabarrus on the road 13-0. Running back Harrison Baucom scored both Falcon touchdowns. Penalties and interceptions inside the red zone squandered additional West opportunities. West still improved its recond to 3-1.
And Davie County pulled away from Thomasville for a 31-13 win. Cameron Coleman, again at running back for the injured Cade Carney, had a season high 112 yards and a touchdown. Davie won its third in a row, moving its record to 4-1.
