North Pitt and Greene Central expected to play a full game Friday night, but instead, they failed to finish the first half.

Officials saw lightning in the distance and delayed the game with Greene Central leading 14-8 with 5:39 to go in the second quarter, and both teams’ head coaches agreed to leave the game where it was for numerous reasons. 

“The reality is, its a holiday weekend,” NP head coach Greg Watford said. “Most of these kids have plans that they have had for months. It’s just unfortunate we wont have another time to play it.”

Watford added the expense of travel for his team from Bethel to Snow Hill was also a factor in choosing not to finish.

Watford’s counterpart, Rams head coach Allen Wooten, agreed the game did not need to continue.

“Monday would have been the only time we could reschedule,” Wooten said. “They are going through some injures, we are going through some injuries, and we’re friends. I played and coached there, so we decided this is a non-conference game so we’ll call it and prepare for our next games.”

Thirty minutes after the delay began, fans were told the game was finished, and there would be no make-up date.

In the just over 19 minutes of game play, the Rams showed off their strong rushing offense. AJ Dupree led the Rams’ rush, totaling 58 yards on 7 attempts, scoring both of Greene Central’s touchdowns. Quarterback BJ Corbitt did not complete a pass but did throw an interception. 

For the Panthers, back-up quarterback Izarion Blango went 2-for-6 for 21 yards with one interception. Naz Staton led NP in rushing, racking up 23 yards on eight attempts. 

Greene Central’s offense struck first. After stalling the NP offense, Corbitt, Dupree and the rest of the Rams offense took over on the 48-yard line. Dupree pushed ahead for a five-yard gain, then took another run off the right side 43 yards for a touchdown. 

NP struck back on its next drive, putting together a 16-play, 78-yard drive capped off by a Blango rushing touchdown from one yard out. The Rams prepared for a point-after kick from the Panthers’ Chris Hardee, but instead gave up a two-point conversion pass when Blango completed a throw to Steve Carroll to tie the game.

Later in the second quarter, Greene Central, with good field position, needed just four plays to move down the field and score thanks to a second rushing touchdown from Dupree. The two-point conversion attempted was stuffed, and the score read 14-8.

Due to North Carolina Athletic Association rules, the game will not count for or against either team since the game failed to reach halftime and will not be made up this season.

NP will travel to South Central for its next game, while Greene Central will also be on the road, travelling to face Eastern Wayne.
