South Central took care of business Friday night, becoming Pitt County’s last unbeaten team with a 40-0 win over North Pitt. 

Justin Humphries had a spectacular game throught the air, finishing 7 of 14 and throwing for 178 yards and two touchdowns. Jemere Artis had an exceptional night as well, rushing for 261 yards on 19 attempts and scoring three touchdowns. Nazir Monroe-Smith also contributed in the ground game, gaining 53 yards on 10 attempts and scoring one touchdown. Jeremy Lewis was Humphries top target, going for 105 yards and one touchdown on four receptions. 

North Pitt struggled to gain a foothold all night, dealing with a myriad of injuries over the course of the game. Quarterback Izarion Blango went 0-8 with one interception. Chrishawn Ward led Panther rushers, finishing with 38 yards on eight attempts. 

The Falcons kicked the game off with a bang. The first offensive snap got the ball to Jeremy Lewis, who went 56 yards for a score, stunning the Panthers defense from the beginning. 

“We did some good things on the offensive and defensive side of the ball; we put points on the board and we shut them out,” head coach Andy Tew said. “Now we need to go back and look at the film and see what we can improve.”

Post-game Tew told his Falcons it was time to begin asking themselves if they are a championship team. He added they need to not only play like a championship team on the field but practice like one as well. 

Early in the second quarter, leading 8-0, Monroe-Smith took advantage of a short field and used his power to score on the ground from six yards out. Following a failed two-point conversion, the Falcons recovered a muffed kickoff return, which led to a three-and-out series. In that series Humphries was benched by Tew, allowing Caleb Woodley to see action for the first time since week two due to medical issues. Woodley failed to complete his lone pass attempt.

With the stellar play of Humphries over the past two weeks, many believed that he would stay the No. 1 quarterback. 

“That is a decsion we make Monday through Thursday. We just go with who we think gives us the best chance to win on Friday,” Tew said. 

In the third quarter, Humphries completed a pass to Cydney Williams, who juked and avoided defenders on his way to a 74-yard touchdown, it would be the lone score of the third quarter.

In the fourth, Artis would score his final touchdown, rushing from four yards out to make the score 40-0.

The Falcons (4-0) will travel to Hertford County in Week 5. The Panthers (0-3) will host Ayden-Grifton. 

D.H. Conley 46, East Wake 7 

The Vikings leveled their record at 2-2 following a big win over East Wake, 46-7. Conley quarterback Nick Hamilton shined, going 11-26, throwing for 262 yards and six touchdowns.

The Vikings receivers had a field day, with CJ Johnson leading the charge. He finished with four receptions for 162 yards and four touchdowns. Mark Warren, who finished with two receptions and 41 yards, and Zy Edwards, who finished with one reception for 23 yards, each scored one touchdown through the air. Jazion Daniels led the offense on the ground, gaining 48 yards on two rushes. 

Muck Brown intercepted an East Wake pass and took it 37 yards for the score to help the Vikings keep their momemtum while on defense. 

Conley will travel to West Craven in Week Five.
