GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Week 6 of the high school football season had two epic games, some high-scoring affairs and much more.

Unbeaten Jacksonville, the No. 2 team in the Touchdown Friday Top 9 poll, knocked off previously unbeaten New Bern, the No. 1 team in our poll — 29-28. The Cardinals won the game after making a two-point conversion late in the contest. Jacksonville is now the only unbeaten team overall in the Big Carolina Conference.

East Duplin also pulled out a dramatic victory over previously unbeaten Kinston, the No. 3 team in our poll.

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — We’re into the second half of the high school football season. The first half was filled with games rescheduled, primarily due to COVID-19. Let’s see how Week 6 goes.

Already, there have been some changes to the overall schedule:

  • Bear Grass Charter is still in quarantine and won’t play again until Oct. 1 at home against Chatham County. No make-up date has been announced for the Jones Senior game postponed due to COVID-19.
  • Farmville Central’s game at Ayden-Grifton has been moved to Oct. 5 at 6:30 p.m. due to COVID-19 with the Chargers. Riverside’s game with Washington County was also postponed due to COVID-19. So Farmville will travel to Riverside this Friday for a 7 p.m. game.
  • Monday night, Ayden-Grifton tweeted out its West Craven home game, which was postponed last Friday due to COVID-19, will be played Sept. 28 at 6:30 p.m.
  • With Rosewood still under coronavirus protocols, Southside will now host Swansboro on Friday.
  • Bethel Academy has received a forfeit from Northeast Academy, meaning Bethel gets the win without playing.

Below is the latest schedule. It is subject to change due to COVID-19 and the chance for rainy weather later this week. Be sure to call ahead to your school to make sure they are playing.
