More Touchdown Friday

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — What was billed as maybe the top high school football game of the season ended up being all New Bern on Friday.

The Bears, the No. 1-ranked team in the Touchdown Friday Top 9 poll, rolled to a convincing 42-7 victory over a tough Havelock team, which came in as the No. 2 team in our poll. The win was a huge way to kick off the Big Carolina Conference play.

New Bern got the ball on offense first but eventually turned it over. That was about the only blemish as the Bears got a touchdown run from Malachi Docket. Dimtrell Tucker later had an interception return for a touchdown.

Add two rushing touchdowns by Aronne Herring near the end of the half and it was all New Bern. Herring finished with three touchdowns on the night.

New Bern improves to 5-0. Havelock dropped to 2-1.

There were also some big wins on Friday by Kinston, North Pitt, Wallace-Rose Hill and others. Tune in for Touchdown Friday at 11:05 p.m. We’ll also post the show here after it airs.

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — It’s Week 5 of the high school football season and COVID-19 along with the weather is already shaking things up.

What else is new.

COVID-19 has, so far, impacted these games:

  • Jacksonville-J.H. Rose football will not play Friday. The two teams will try to play again in two weeks, on Sept. 28.
  • Bear Grass Charter is in quarantine for two weeks. So Friday’s Jones Senior game won’t be played.
  • Beddingfield has canceled its game with Croatan due to COVID-19. Northside-Pinetown’s game with Rosewood was canceled due to COVID-19 with the Eagles. See where we’re going? Croatan is at Northside-Pinetown Friday at 7.
  • Swansboro’s game at Jordan-Matthews has been canceled.
  • West Craven at Ayden-Grifton was postponed Friday afternoon due to COVID-19. It’s a conference game so it will be rescheduled.

Northeastern and First Flight played Wednesday. Currituck and Hertford County played Thursday, both due to the chance for rain on Friday.
