Alexander Central 55 North Iredell 8
The Alexander Central offense should have included a warning label Friday night in their homecoming win over North Iredell. That warning might read “ Beware, Explosive, Handle with Care !
Junior Jacob Parson scored on the 1st play from scrimmage as he out raced the Raiders to the end zone from 61 yards. The play was a sweep that officially goes as a pass from quarterback Gunnar Anderson. Any thoughts that the Cougars would be overlooking North Iredell were dispelled and the rout was on.
The Cougar would add two more touchdowns in the opening quarter on a 16 yard run from Devon Weiss and a 25 yard toss from Anderson to Bryson Godfrey, Godfrey would add another score before half a 14 yard run and then essentially take the rest of the night off.
Kendell Flowers would score two touchdowns on a 21 yard pass and a 40 yard run. Gunnar Anderson on the night was 9 of 11 for 235 yards and 4 td passes. Tejuen Calhoun had 10 tackles to lead the defense which allowed only a late 4th quarter touchdown by North. The Cougars out gained North Iredell 558 to 124.
Alexander Central is now 5-1 on the season and 1-1 in the North Piemont Conference. Next Friday the Blue and Gold head to Pumpkin Center to battle North Lincoln.
