Football: Pine Lake vs. Atkins Away
Kickoff: 7:30 p.m. Aug. 29. Pine Lake Prep (1-0) at Atkins (1-0). Last meeting: Atkins won 27-20 last year. Players to watch: PLP – DB Joe Berg, DB Zack Gallant, RB Tysheem Kerns; Atkins – LB Jason Mack, RB James Etter. THE SKINNY: Pine Lake snapped a 10-game losing streak with the first victory in the program’s history last week (6-0 against Vance’s junior varsity). The milestone came in coach Brett Hayford’s debut, and hopefully will be a springboard for the Pride. Pine Lake scored on its first play from scrimmage (Tysheem Kerns’ 45-yard run). Berg and Gallant made interceptions to help preserve the shutout. Atkins, a Winston-Salem school, rolled up 44 points in its opener behind Etter’s three touchdown runs.
