Bison stay atop shifting High Five
An impressive 35-17 romp past Asheboro helped High Point Central maintain its firm grip atop The High Point Enterprise High Five.
An eventful second week of the prep football season created seismic shifts in the rest of the poll.
The Bison, 2-0 after solid wins over T.W. Andrews and the Blue Comets, earned all three first-place votes and 15 points in balloting by the Enterprise sports staff.
Positions 2-5 changed dramatically from the first rankings.
T.W. Andrews jumped from fifth to second after a 66-0 win over Southwest Guilford on Friday. The Red Raiders (1-1) took all three second-place votes for 12 points.
East Davidson joins the survey in third place. The Golden Eagles, 2-0 following Friday’s 36-3 rout of Providence Grove, collected seven points.
Trinity (2-0) stands fourth with six points. The Bulldogs rallied past Bishop McGuinness for a 12-7 road win on Friday.
Thomasville completes the High Five in fifth place. The Bulldogs (1-1) received five points after a 14-7 victory over traditional state power Mount Airy.
Southwest, Ledford and Glenn fell from the ratings after losses in week two.
All five ranked teams are in action Friday night.
Central plays host to Thomasville, while Andrews visits Grimsley, Trinity heads to East Montgomery and East Davidson travels to Central Davidson.
Also Friday, it’s Wake Christian at High Point Christian; Bishop at Alleghany; Reagan at Glenn; Ragsdale at Northeast Guilford; Southeast Guilford at Southern Guilford; and Southwestern Randolph at Wheatmore.
