Gaston, Lincoln and Cleveland Week 5 Recap

 South Point 45 – Kings Mountain 9: South Point got off to a slow start only leading Kings Mountain 17-9 at the beginning of the third quarter. But once the Raiders got rolling, Kings Mountain had no answers. South Point rolled up 28 straight points to blow the Mountaineers out. Troy Leeper, in just week five, now has over 1,000 yards rushing. At this rate, he will hit 2,000 before week 11.

Lincolnton 50 – Forestview 18: Lincolnton continues to show why they are #1 in 2A in the state. Forestview, on the other hand, continues to struggle. The Wolves jumped out to a 28-0 on the Jaguars and led 36-6 at half-time. Forestview did cut the lead to 36-12 at the start of the third quarter, but would get no closer. Forestview starts conference this week as they host Crest.

Hunter Huss 36 – North Gaston 28: Up 30-0 in the third quarter, the Huskies looked like they would cruise to an easy victory. However, the Wildcats stormed back outscoring the Huskies 28-6 the rest of the way. Huss is 5-0 to start the season, but will more than likely see that streak come to a screeching halt as they take on South Point.

Crest 24 – Ashbrook 13: Crest has won two straight games. Ashbrook has lost two. After struggling offensively their first  two out of three games, it looks like the Chargers have put it together. The 2010 3AA Runner-ups look to build on their offense as they travel to Forestview. Ashbrook will be striving to get back on track as they host North Gaston for Homecoming.

East Lincoln 56 – Bessemer City 13: The Mustangs got back on track after losing two straight heart-breakers. After putting up 42 points last week, the Yellow Jackets did not score their first points until the fourth quarter after East Lincoln did all their damage.

Berry Academy 45 – East Gaston 38: For the second straight week, the Warriors found themselves behind 20+ points in the first half. This time they were down 25-0 in the second quarter before they started storming back. Unfortunately, they were not able to complete the comeback like they did against East Lincoln.

Cherryville 43 – North Lincoln 14: The Ironmen opened up conference play with a win after suffering two straight blowout losses. If there are any silver linings for the Knights, it’s the fact they reached double-digit scoring for the first time this year. However, it does not get any better from there. The Knights travel to county rival, East Lincoln, this Friday.

Burns 38 – Q Foundation 12: Nothing surprising about this score. The Bulldogs continue to roll and will take their 4-1 start to unbeaten Freedom as they begin conference play. This will, no doubt, be for the conference title. It’s highly unlikely anyone else in the conference will challenge either one of these two teams.

Freedom 35 – Shelby 21: This is probably the worst start a Shelby team has ever seen. Last year, they were 2-4 before winning four of their last five regular season games en route to a fourth round playoff appearance. They lost that game 21-14 to Salisbury. Now the Golden Lions are hoping to at least make the playoffs. They host Kings Mountain Friday night and both are looking to rebound from both of their losses last Friday. It will get a little easier for the Lions as they have winless teams, Patton and R-S Central, coming up.  But they also have unbeaten Chase and 4-1 teams, Burns and East Rutherford.
