LNP’s Great Eight Poll

 

 

1. HOUGH (3-0)

The Huskies can beat teams in many different ways. Quarterback Josh Stilley threw four touchdown passes and ran for another score last week.

This week: Bye

 

 

2. DAVIDSON DAY (3-0)

Patriots were impressive in a 46-20 win at Providence Day in the afternoon heat last Saturday. Will Grier has 20 touchdown passes.

This week: at Harrells Christian

 

 

3. EAST LINCOLN (3-0)

The Mustangs have won 19 straight games, including rival North Lincoln last week. Average margin of victory this season: 37-12.

This week: at Gastonia Forestview

 

 

4. WEST MECKLENBURG (3-0)

The Hawks have topped 60 points against all three opponents, who each are 0-3. Big step up in class this week against Independence (3-0).

This week: at Independence

 

 

5. SOUTHLAKE CHRISTIAN (3-0)

Luke Lancaster threw two scoring passes and ran for a touchdown last week. The Eagles’ versatility is tough to defend.

This week: High Point Christian

 

 

6. MOORESVILLE (2-1)

The Blue Devils piled up 51 points last week, but allowed 41. Still, a win is a win, although the defense needs to sharpen up.

This week: at Hickory

 

 

7. LAKE NORMAN CHARTER (3-0)

Scoring 42 points is pretty good. The Knights did it in the first quarter last week in a lopsided win against Pine Lake Prep.

This week: at Gastonia Highland

 

 

8. NORTH MECKLENBURG (2-1)

The Vikings flashed some ferocious defense in crushing East Mecklenburg, with five sacks and three interceptions.

This week: Bye
