Overhills 47, Southern Lee 15

SANFORD — Through one quarter, the Southern Lee Cavaliers had run 23 plays from scrimmage and had five first downs.

Overhills, on the other hand, had just eight plays from scrimmage, barely a drop in time of possession, two first downs and three penalties for 35 yards.

Oh, and the Jaguars had a 20-0 lead.

Tyree Massey led a quick-strike Overhills offense on Friday night, rushing for three touchdowns and 184 yards as the Jaguars cruised to a 47-15 victory over winless Southern Lee.

Christian Moultrie added 74 yards of rushing and a score while quarterback Tirrell Ray was 1-for-2 passing, hitting C.C. Williams for a 79-yard, one-play scoring drive as Overhills (2-6, 2-1) remained in fourth place in the Cape Fear Valley Conference standings despite still being two victories shy of qualifying for the state playoffs.

Ace Chalmers led Southern Lee (0-9, 0-4) with 52 yards rushing while Jaymes Farrow had a 43-yard fumble return for a touchdown. Quarterback Ashton Gaines, who did well to rush for nine yards after being thrown for a loss three times in the first half, had a 1-yard scoring plunge midway through the third quarter and threw for 95 yards. Gaines, though, was 11 of 32 with three interceptions, one of which was returned 98 yards for a touchdown by Overhills’ Chris Theus.

After their 20-0 lead after the first quarter — the Jaguars had 188 yards of total offense on those eight plays in the period — the Jaguars led 34-0 at the half. Overhills scored on its first drive of the second half to go ahead 40-0 before Gaines marched the Cavaliers down the field, getting a big 34-yard catch from Quentin Ingram down to the 1-yard line to set up Gaines’ scoring rush.

After the touchdown, holder Colby Thornton scooped up a low snap on the point-after try, rolled to his right and tossed a nifty underhanded pass to Jordan Cox for the 2-point conversion to make it 40-8 midway through the third quarter.

Southern Lee recovered the ensuing onside kick — Jake Brower both kicked the ball and recovered it — but Overhills was never truly threatened.

The Cavaliers travel to Union Pines next week still in search of the first victory on the season.

Northwood 62, Carrboro 34

CARRBORO — Shane Peppers rushed for a season high 414 yards and six touchdowns as the Northwood Chargers remained unbeaten this football season after defeating Carrboro 62-34 on Friday night at Carrboro High School.

The fifth-ranked Chargers improve to 9-0 overall and 2-0 in the 1A/2A Carolina-9 Conference.

In the fourth quarter, quarterback Sam Griffin found Ridge Smith for a 60-yard touchdown completion. The score put the Chargers ahead by 14 and they never looked back from there.

Douglas Byrd 14, Western Harnett 7

FAYETTEVILLE — Douglas Byrd held off Western Harnett 14-7 in football on Friday night.

The Eagles, who came into the game tied for first place in the Cape Fear Valley Conference standings and riding a two-game winning streak, fell to 3-5 overall and 2-1 in the league.

Douglas Byrd moved to 5-4 overall and remained in fifth place behind Overhills at 2-2 in the conference.

South Davidson 12, Chatham Central 7

BEAR CREEK — A recovered fumble on its own 13-yard line helped the South Davidson football team escape with a 12-7 win over Chatham Central on Friday night.

Despite the loss, there were still some positives for the Bears. On the ground, they accumulated more than 240 yards. Quarterback Josh Edwards had 10 carries for 143 yards. Wesley Degraffenreidt had 22 carries for 106 yards and a 1-yard touchdown run for the only score of the game for the Bears. The touchdown put the Bears ahead briefly at 7-6. Edwards was also 8-of-16 passing for 111 yards.

With 2:41 remaining in the game, South Davidson’s Josh McLure scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 14-yard run. The point after failed and the Wildcats led 12-6.

The Bears fall to 1-7 overall and 0-4 in the Yadkin Valley 1A/2A Conference.
