FRANKLINTON -- A pre-game banner, which was soon burst through by Franklinton's players, spoke to a new era in FHS football history in JeVar Bransome's initial season in charge of the program. But while this is indeed a new chapter in the Franklinton football legacy, one area of status quo remained in force Friday -- the Red Rams' recent dominance over backyard rival Louisburg.
BUNN -- By halftime, Bunn had already piled up 56 points during the Wildcats' regular season home football opener on Friday against the Northwest Halifax Vikings. The Wildcats were dominant literally from the opening kickoff en route to delivering a 70-6 triumph over the Vikings in a non-conference football showdown. Just four days after its clutch decision at Wilson Fike, Bunn upped its mark to 2-0 overall. The Vikings slipped to 0-2 -- and have given up 70 points in each of the setbacks.
