Friday's Rewind

Davidson Day 61, Metrolina Christian 21:
Davidson Day ran its record to 8-0 with an easy win at Bailey Road Middle. The Patriots led 40-8 at halftime. QB Will Grier was 21-of-30 for 329 yards and six touchdowns. He ran 41 yards and two touchdowns. Jordan Brown had five catches for 65 yards and three touchdowns. Davidson Day plays at Charlotte Latin. Davidson Day coach Chad Grier graduated from Charlotte Latin in 1986. He was current Hawks coach Larry McNulty’s first QB.

West Mecklenburg 41, Olympic 8: Hawks senior running back Shaun Wilson ran 21 times for 265 yards and three touchdows in the easy win. West Meck scored 14 points in the first quarter and led 35-0 at halftime. The Hawks were up 41-0 before Olympic’s Trey Gowen scored from 7 yards out in the fourth quarter. Brandon Dixon scored twice for the Hawks (7-1, 3-1 SoMeck 8). West Meck plays conference unbeaten Charlotte Catholic next week.

Charlotte Christian 45, Country Day 21: On homecoming, Charlotte Christian jumped all over its CISAA conference rival. The unbeaten Knights (8-0, 2-0) stormed out to a 35-7 hafltime lead. In the second quarter, Christian scored three touchdowns in less than six minutes. Knights QB Bo Hines threw for 271 yards and two touchdowns, completing 10-of-15 passes. Tailback Elijah Deveaux ran 22 times for 177 yards and threee scores. Two Knights -- Garrett Bradbury and Adam Durden -- had 100-yard receiving nights. Country Day’s Cole Bloomer completed 20-of-28 passes for 219 yards and a score. Country Day ran the ball 22 times for 22 yards.

Independence 69, Garinger 0: The Patriots ended a tough run of games with the easy win at home. It was the most points Independence has scored since beating West Charlotte 76-27 in September, 2012. The Patriots came into the game having lost three of four games. Independence improved to 5-3 overall, 2-1 in conference play. The Patriots can still potentially get in a line for a conference title by beating Myers Park, Rocky River and Butler in its final three games.

Charlotte Latin 58, Cannon 14: The Hawks (7-1) scored 51 points in the first half of an easy win. David Pearson had seven carries for 107 yards. He scored three touchdowns for the Hawks.

Providence Day 30, Rabun Gap 20: The Chargers grabbed a 14-0 first quarter lead and led 24-14 at halftime. Providence Day improved to 6-3, 0-1 in the CISAA. The Chargers have two tough CISAA league games next: against Country Day on the road next week and defending state champ Charlotte Christian after that. If the Chargers win both, they’ll grab a share of the league title.

Berry 49, Harding 14: Berry ended a three-game losing streak with an easy win in the “Battle of Alleghany.” The two schools sit about a mile apart from each on Allgehany Road near uptown Charlotte. Berry (2-6) won its first SoMeck 8 game in school history. Harding, which began the season 3-0, dropped its fourth straight game. The Rams are 3-4 overall, 0-4 in conference play.

By The Numbers
102: Career rushing touchdowns for Charlotte Catholic’s Elijah Hood after Friday’s four touchdown, 21-carry, 261-yard performance in a 42-6 win over South Meck. Unofficially, Hood has 7,060 career yards.

4: Only four N.C. players, before Friday, had 100 career touchdowns: Albemarle’s T.A. McLendon (170), West Rowan’s Kevin Parks (158), Maiden’s Tommy Henry (125) and Western Guilford/Asheboro’s Anthony Saunders (100).

250: Forest Hills coach John Lowery won his 250th career game in a 56-25 win over Parkwood Friday.

39-1: South Point's record in its last 40 conference games. South Point hasn't lost a conference game since losing to Forestview in 2009. It was South Point's first league loss in three years.

Hough is the old North Meck less Mallard Creek who would be in the mix although came from Vance who also lost a lot. With West Charlotte a goner the Vikings should have won at least a couple 4AA titles by now having quality coaches who didn't choke.
