Four days after a stinging loss to rival Bunn, Franklinton High School senior signal caller Daquan Neal paced the Red Rams to a 37-22 senior night victory against visiting Southern Vance with a five touchdown outing.
In an evening that featured recognition for more than 20 FHS senior players, the home crowd was treated to an offensive explosion in the first half by the Red Rams.
The Bunn Wildcats entered Friday night’s home contest against the Warren County Eagles with a share of the Northern Carolina Conference Championship on the line.
