Hertford County blanks NHC
AHOSKIE — Senior quarterback Tye Saxby and Hertford County staged an offensive exhibition on Thursday evening, spilling non-conference foe Northampton County by a 41-0 margin.
The Bears, now 4-1 this season, travel to Riverside on Monday, while Northampton County (1-3) entertains Northeastern on Friday.
RRHS has league match nixed
Northern Carolina 1A/2A leader Roanoke Rapids must wait a few days to continue its march through league play, as inclement weather in the Valley this week forced the cancellation of Thursday’s conference tilt at Chockoyotte Country Club.
The Jackets, 3-0 this season, return to the links on April 13 at The River Golf and Country Club in Bunn.
Scheduling news and notes
The show goes on.
Such is the case for Roanoke Rapids, which will have three athletic teams participate in contests over next week’s spring break.
On Monday, the 3-0 women’s soccer team — which hasn’t allowed a goal this season — travels to Rocky Mount for a 1 p.m. showdown with Big East Conference 3A foe Northern Nash (2-3), while Tuesday showcases rivalry softball in the form of RRHS (3-1) at Bunn (2-1).
The busy-bee schedule concludes on Friday, when the Jackets take to the gridiron for their regular-season finale, also against Bunn.
