Football: Hopewell vs. Lake Norman Away
Kickoff: 7:30 p.m. Aug. 29 at Lake Norman. Hopewell (1-0) at Lake Norman (1-0). Last meeting: Lake Norman won 41-33 last year. Players to watch: Hopewell – RB Dimitris Camp, WR Kenyon Taylor, WR Tre Exume; LN – QB Josh Ladowski, LB Eric Warren, DB Trey Read. THE SKINNY: Neither team had trouble scoring in opening games last week. Hopewell scored 40 against hapless Garinger. Camp rushed for 106 yards and three touchdowns. Exume caught two scoring passes and Taylor had one. Lake Norman rallied in the fourth quarter to beat North Meck 35-28. Ladowski ran for four touchdowns and threw for a fifth. He’s got a deep pool of receivers to target. This should be a high-scoring affair that tests both defenses from start to finish.
