WILSON -- Ap­par­ently lightning does strike twice.

Two tries and two storms later, the weather had the ul­ti­mate say in the out­come of a J.H. Rose win over Hunt in a game orig­i­nally sched­uled for Fri­day, but de­layed and again forced into a pre­ma­ture end Mon­day evening.

After light­ning forced the teams off the field Fri­day in­side War­rior Sta­dium, the de­ci­sion was made to re­sume the con­test Mon­day with the Ram­pants own­ing a 14-6 lead at the end of one quarter.

As Hunt trailed 21-14 with 9:49 re­main­ing Mon­day, light­ning was again spot­ted in the area. Ap­prox­i­mately 70 min­utes later, of­fi­cials made the de­ci­sion to halt the game with the War­riors own­ing pos­ses­sion on a second-and-12 from their own 39-yard line.

Since the game had pro­gressed be­yond half­time and per North Carolina High School Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion rules, the Ram­pants were awarded the light­ning-short­ened vic­tory to re­main un­beaten through three games. Hunt fell to 2-1.

“I feel like that’s a very winnable game,” Hunt coach Keith Byrum said. “We didn’t get an op­por­tu­nity to fin­ish it. I’m frus­trated for the kids. ... We had been mov­ing the ball well. I wanted them to get an op­por­tu­nity to see if we could move the ball down the field and stick it in.”

Penal­ties hurt the War­riors in the sec­ond half, including being flagged for a pair of un­sports­man­like con­duct fouls and a de­fen­sive pass in­ter­fer­ence during one drive. Rose se­nior quar­ter­back Grant Jar­man ended the drive when he faked a hand­off and rolled to his left, find­ing re­ceiver Jake Rogers for a 3-yard touch­down.

The Jar­man-to-Rogers con­nec­tion was re­spon­si­ble for all three TDs for the Rampants over the span of four days, in­clud­ing a pair of 18-yard scores on Fri­day night prior to the de­lay.

“You never want it to end kind of like it has,” Rose coach Dave Wo­jtecki said. “It has been a long few days. Both of us have teams to pre­pare for on Fri­day as well. You don’t want it to end that way, but you just want it to be over. Happy that our guys came out of half­time and kind of got a lit­tle en­ergy out of half and played a lit­tle bit bet­ter.

“But it’s tough to start a game, stop and come back, start an­other one and stop. It’s tough on the kids that way.”

Jar­man fin­ished 10-of-20 for 96 yards and his three TDs to Rogers, who had five grabs for 41 yards.

D.H. Conley 56, Washington 45

WASHINGTON — In what was an action-packed, high-scoring football game complete with slick plays, long touchdown runs and a lengthy lightning delay at halftime, D.H. Conley ultimately outlasted the Washington Pam Pack during Week 2 action last Friday night.

Although the score makes it look like the two teams battled it out from start to finish, that wasn’t the case in the second half. The last 24 minutes of the game belonged to Conley (1-2), which outscored Washington 28-12 to seal the win.

“I think our kids are hard-working, dedicated and focused,” Conley coach Nate Conner said. “We came out and did a great job adjusting and talking about some things at halftime and using that time as a bonus. Not wasting time, not complaining about the time but using it as a positive for us and it helped us a lot.”

Conley star receiver C.J. Johnson scored the first three touchdowns for the Vikings, but Washington’s Michael Clark and Montrice Selby joined in on the action. The duo had four combined rushing touchdowns during the first half, including a 46-yarder from Selby for the Pam Pack (1-2) to take a 33-28 halftime lead.

Then it was the Johnson show, and he started the third quarter by outracing the Pam Pack defenders in the open field for another touchdown to regain the lead for the Vikings with a 35-33 advantage. It turned out to be the game-winning score for the Vikes, who never looked back and took a 48-33 advantage behind more big plays from Johnson and Isaiah Gamble.

Washington cut the lead to nine point in the fourth period, but the Viking defense also forced a pair of key turnovers during the quarter.
