GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — The regular season for high school football is now complete.

Except for one game.

High school football teams around the state played their final regular-season game on Friday. However, one game will need to be finished Saturday morning.

James Kenan led Wallace-Rose Hill 31-28 with 25 seconds left going into Saturday’s finish. The game was halted Friday with Wallace-Rose Hill lining up for a tying field goal when shots were fired from the area of the Wallace-Rose Hill stands.

The two teams picked things up with Wallace-Rose Hill hitting its field goal to take the game to overtime. The Bulldogs got a touchdown from Irving Brown then an interception by Xzavier Pearsall to seal a 38-31 win. WRH clinches second place in the conference with the win.

WNCT’s Erin Jenkins reports that fans and players began running from the area. Legion Stadium, where Wallace-Rose Hill plays, was cleared and the game was halted. After well over 30 minutes, the two schools agreed to return to finish the game Saturday morning at 9 a.m. since Class 2-A state playoff seeding is riding on the outcome.

Friday night, the Duplin County Sheriff’s Office confirmed shots were fired. One person was arrested “for the affray” but “the shooter is not in custody at this time.” Officials said they were confident “that the responsible person or persons will be appropriately identified and charged.”

Officials said everyone was safe and there were no injuries.

Our Game of the Week was a big NCISAA 8-man clash between undefeated John Paul II and Arendell Parrott Academy. It lived up to the billing as Parrott Academy won, 66-60, on a touchdown with no time left.
