ROCKY MOUNT -- Judging by the final score, it was hard to believe that, midway through the second stanza, Bunn and Nash Central were tied during Monday's non-league gridiron tussle at The Dawg Pound on the NCHS campus.
However, Bunn was just getting started en route to delivering a 77-37 decision over the homestanding Bulldogs.
The score was tied at 23-23 before the Wildcats took the lead for good courtesy of a 2-yard plunge from Davante Caldwell at the 4:48 mark of the second quarter.
FRANKLINTON -- Few fans in attendance -- if any -- figured that Granville Central and Franklinton would combine to register just one touchdown during Monday's non-conference football showdown. The clubs have a history of playing high-scoring games in the past, and both squads once again boast a variety of skill-position options this fall. But defense would rule the proceedings on a rainy night at FHS, with the visiting Panthers needed just a single tally to slip past the Red Rams by a 7-6 margin.
