Football: Lake Norman vs. Hough Home
Kickoff: 7 p.m. Lake Norman (2-0) at Hough (1-1). Last meeting: Hough won 51-29 last year. Players to watch: LN–QB Josh Ladowski, LB Eric Warren, WR Corey Joyner; Hough–WR Caleb White, QB Will Coleman, DB Mark Fields II.THE SKINNY: LN’s Ladowski ran for 4 touchdowns in Week 1 and passed for 4 touchdowns in Week 2. He’ll present problems for a Hough defense that was riddled for 38 points last week against Mooresville. Joyner caught 2 touchdown passes last week (among 6 receptions for 150 yards) and will go against a top-notch Hough secondary. But Hough needs to rebound mentally and physically from a 31-point loss to Mooresville. Lake Norman has scored 38 and 35 points in its 2 games, and has one of the area’s most explosive offenses. This could be a close, high-scoring game.
