RM Gryphons shut out FHS

ROCKY MOUNT -- The Rocky Mount Gryphons, with some help from the Franklinton Red Rams, tallied 42 unanswered points last Friday as part of a 42-0 victory over FHS during the Big East Conference football opener for both clubs at Gryphon Stadium.

With the loss, the Red Rams fell for the fifth time in a row and are now 2-5 overall to go with a 1-0 mark in Big East Conference play.

Rocky Mount, considered to be one of the top clubs in the league this season, upped its mark to 5-2 and 1-0.

The Red Rams received the opening kickoff and gained a total of two yards with the runback. Things went downhill after that.

Two fumbles and an interception on the Red Rams' first three possessions led to Rocky Mount touchdowns.

Franklinton's misery continued as the fumbles and interceptions piled up with each turnover leading to a Rocky Mount touchdown.

The Red Rams' defense was under pressure all night as the Gryphon's offense produced a balanced attack with 202 yards passing and 213 rushing.

RM quarterback Jaquan Lynch threw with ease as he completed 7 of 10 passes with three touchdowns.

Anterious Williams was a workhorse for the Rams as he carried the ball 10 times and caught three passes from quarterback Lye'shon Parker.

The Red Rams look to bounce back as Fike High makes the trip to Franklinton this Friday night, while Rocky Mount will entertain Wilson Hunt.
