Saturday's prep roundup
After bumbling and stumbling in practice for most of the week, High Point Central’s offense clicked on all cylinders on Friday night.
For decades, Southwest Guilford has had the reputation of having a mediocre football program. Some years, it was deserved; other years, it wasn’t. But without a win against the city’s football powers, it was hard to argue otherwise.
Bishop McGuinness spent most of the first quarter Friday night playing keep-away from Trinity.
Southwest Guilford will remember this game for a long time.
