RALEIGH — Leesville Road scored 29 points in the third period to rally from a nine-point deficit and win the non-conference football game on Thursday night.
“Our first half was atrocious,” said Leesville coach David Green. “We had a nice 90-yard drive, but didn’t do much offensively or defensively in the first two periods.
Leesville trailed 15-7 at the half, before Leesville scored on three short runs, on Zach Greene’s 85-yard kickoff return and Zach Gentry’s seven-yard run.
GREENSBORO — Greensboro Grimsley rushed for 391 yards in the non-conference football win over Northern Durham on Thursday night.
Northern’s Andrew Peacock passed 5 and 34 yards to Cliff Edwards for the Knights’ two fourth quarter scores.
But the Knights couldn’t handle Grimsley's running game.
"Quite simply, we learned that we are not as good as we thought we were after beating Middle Creek last week," said Northern coach Anthony Sullivan. "Grimsley has a very good team and I expect them to do well."
