LNP’s Great Eight Poll

 

1. DAVIDSON DAY (7-0)

The Patriots scored 42 points last week to remain unbeaten. It was a season-low in points. That folks, is a potent offense.

This week: Metrolina Christian

 

2. HOUGH (6-1)

Seven turnovers, including two on their first two possessions, doomed the Huskies in a first-place showdown against Mallard Creek last week.

This week: at Kannapolis Brown

 

3. EAST LINCOLN (6-1)

Ugly victories count, too. The Mustangs weren’t sharp in a 14-10 win against Bunker Hill, but it kept them in the conference lead.

This week: at Newton-Conover

 

4. MOORESVILLE (6-1)

The Blue Devils’ fine season rolls on. They’re locked in a first-place conference tie with rival Lake Norman, which is what both fan bases crave.

This week: at North Lincoln

 

5. LAKE NORMAN (5-2)

High-scoring, wild-ending games seem to be the norm for the Wildcats. Last week, quarterback Josh Ladowski accounted for 596 yards.

This week: West Iredell

 

6. WEST MECKLENBURG (6-1)

The Hawks got back on track with a 35-10 victory against South Mecklenburg last week. It’ll be a tough test this week.

This week: Olympic

 

7. SOUTHLAKE CHRISTIAN (6-1)

The Eagles hopefully used the bye week to rebound physically and emotionally from their first loss.

This week: at Trinity Christian

 

8. NORTH MECKLENBURG (3-4)

The Vikings are battling some injuries to key players. They allowed too many long, time-consuming drives against Hopewell last week.

This week: Concord Robinson
