Louisburg Pastes Panthers

KENLY -- After committing some untimely special teams mistakes early in the game, Louisburg more than made up for them the rest of the way during last Friday’s regular season prep football opener at North Johnston.
LHS used some special teams heroics to take charge for good, and the Warriors continued to pull away en route to a 49-21 road decision over the Panthers.

Wildcats blitzed by Fike

WILSON -- Wilson Fike has gained a preseason reputation as being one of the top Class 3-A football teams in Eastern North Carolina.
The Golden Demons did nothing to dispel that notion during their opener last Friday at home against the Bunn Wildcats.
Like Fike, Bunn has high hopes for the campaign, but the Wildcats were unable to find the end zone during a 28-0 setback.

BHS’ NEW FACES

BUNN -- Duane Gatson built the Bunn High School boys and girls tennis programs into a respectable force in the Northern Carolina Conference during his extended tenure.
But that stint ended in May with his resignation to devote more time to family and other pursuits.
That left BHS scrambling to find a coach on staff -- basically anyone willing to put in the time and effort to work with players.

HOLD HIM OFF. Louisburg College’s Nigel Robinson holds off a Wake Tech player during Tuesday afternoon’s Region X men’s soccer matchup at Ronald May Field.
Martin’s Song At LC

LOUISBURG -- When Louisburg College filled its men’s soccer coaching vacancy two seasons ago, the Hurricanes opted for youth and potential in the form of the unproven Cristian Neagu.
All Neagu did was take the Hurricanes to the national finals in his first season. LC lost in overtime in that match, but Neagu had made an instant impact.
