Football: Nrth Meck v. Hopewell Home-Shield Trophy Game

7 PM @ Hopewell Home. Hopewell won 28-21 last season. North Mecklenburg (3-3, 1-1) at Hopewell (1-5, 0-2). Players to watch: North Mecklenburg–QB Nolan Beasley, RB William Santiago, LB Jaylan Bridges; Hopewell–WR/RB Dominique Heath, QB Jerry Chadwick, WR Logan Chester. THE SKINNY: This is the “Shield of Victory” game in which the winning school keeps the Shield Trophy for a year. North Meck needs to win to keep playoff hopes alive. Hopewell needs to win for an emotional boost after a 69-pt loss to Mallard Creek last week. The Titans have won this rivalry the past six years. North Meck had an effective mix of running and passing in a victory against West Charlotte last week, but was nearly doomed by a late fumble and errant punt snap. The Vikings defense isn't huge, but compensates with speed and aggressiveness.
