It may have been a little wet in some spots but high school football was back in force all over North Carolina on Friday. Some games on the Week 1 schedule were moved to Thursday due to the weather.

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Maybe those schools that started their high school football season on Thursday were on to something.
Friday’s official start to the high school football season looks cloudy with a better-than-average chance of rain at some point. Because of that, several area schools decided to play their games on Thursday (see scores below).
WNCT’s Kelci O’Donnell reports as of noon, all of Friday’s games were still confirmed. Check below for the full schedule.
Be sure to tune in to the premiere of another season of “Touchdown Friday.” You can see it today during our 9 On Your Side News at 11. We’ll have highlights from a number of games in the area.
In addition, Nolan Knight will be live at D.H. Conley during today’s newscast starting at 5, with a preview of that and the other games.
