LNP’s Great Eight Poll

 

1. HOUGH (5-0)

The flexible Huskies can gain yards running and passing. Pick your poison, defenses. These guys are difficult to contain.

This week: Concord Robinson

 

2. DAVIDSON DAY (6-0)

The Patriots rolled into Marvin Ridge and crushed the hosts 45-0. Just like they rolled into Albemarle and every other field they’ve played on.

This week: Bye

 

3. WEST MECKLENBURG (5-0)

The offense gets a lot of attention, but the Hawks have three shutouts this season. They’re far from being a one-trick pony.

This week: at Providence

 

4. EAST LINCOLN (4-1)

Chazz Surratt continues to improve as a quarterback and last week had a hand in seven touchdowns. Keep him healthy, Mustangs.

This week: at Lincolnton

 

5. SOUTHLAKE CHRISTIAN (6-0)

It’s a step up in class this week for the Eagles, who’ve adopted a run-first strategy. Control the line and you often control the game.

This week: Providence Day

 

6. MOORESVILLE (4-1)

The never-say-die Blue Devils looked cooked last week, but scored in the final minute to beat Statesville. A huge emotional springboard.

This week: at North Iredell

 

7. LAKE NORMAN (3-2)

The Wildcats’ pitch-and-catch combination of Josh Ladowski and Corey Joyner hasn’t been slowed much at all this season.

This week: Statesville

 

8. LAKE NORMAN CHARTER (5-1)

The Knights need to erase memories of last week’s 56-point loss. There’s still time to get back into the conference race.

This week: East Gaston
