GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — There were close games, blowouts and a milestone to celebrate during Week 7 of the high school football season.

Tarboro football coach Jeff Craddock picked up his 200th career win as the Vikings won at Gates County, 42-8, on Friday. According to Van Holland, who owns the Tar River Times newspaper, Craddock has only had one losing season since taking over the program in 2004.

Kinston rallied to beat Southwest Onslow, 28-21, in the first visit by the Vikings to Southwest Onslow. Kinston was up 20-7 in the third quarter then lost the lead before rallying.

Other winners from Friday included Riverside over Perquimans and North Pitt beating SouthWest Edgecombe, both league games.

New Bern, J.H. Rose, Wallace-Rose Hill, Havelock and Southside each put up 50 or more points in their wins on Friday.

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Week 7 of the high school football season started a few days early … with a bang.

J.H. Rose won at home Tuesday over previously unbeaten Jacksonville, 28-21. Both teams played Tuesday after COVID-19 protocols at Rose forced the game to be postponed from earlier this season. Rose (3-3, 2-0 Big Carolina Conference) is the only unbeaten team in league play outside of D.H. Conley, which opened up league play with a win at Northside-Jacksonville last Friday.

Conley plays Havelock this Friday. Rose hosts Northside-Jacksonville on Friday. Jacksonville is off.

That trend will continue into Week 8, with several schools playing Tuesday games then, too.

For now, here is the full schedule from information gathered at MaxPreps. Games are subject to change without notice due to COVID-19 and the weather. Be sure to check ahead with your favorite school to make sure they will still be playing the scheduled games below.
