GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Week 3 of the high school football season is in the books. Both days.

Daughter, Farmville Central grad in military surprises father with return home

Games were played on Thursday and Friday around Eastern North Carolina. Many teams chose to play Thursday to get a jump on the Labor Day weekend. Our Game of the Week turned out to be a good one as Cleveland rallied for a 34-23 win over D.H. Conley. East Duplin made the Backyard Brawl a no-contest affair with a 55-0 win. Meanwhile, New Bern tossed a shutout, beating West Craven 53-0.
