Hickory Ridge now on a 3 game loosing streak and looking for answers as they go into the last week of the regular season. Concord scored on its first possession of the game and never looked back. The Bulls never got started on offense. A pass interception set the Spiders up on the Ragin' Bulls 15 yard line. One play and Concord QB hit the wide out for 15 yard TD strike. Next Bulls series ended with another interception, this time a pick 6 making the Concord lead 21-0 with 3 minutes to go in the 1st quarter.
The Bulls really settled down on defense and held the spiders in check over the second 12 minute period, but the lack of offense made for a cold long night for the Hickory Ridge fans.
The Spiders took the second half kickoff and again scored on their opening drive. Another TD later on made the score 35-0. It was midway through the 4th quarter before your Ragin' Bulls found the end zone. Brian Baltimore scored after several hard runs by Cody Cothern set the bulls deep into Spider territory.
Next up for HRHS is a visit to JM Robinson Bull Dogs. The final regular season game is a must win for a chance to make it into the playoffs.
Around the league, AL Brown stays perfect at (6-0) after winning against North West (3-3). Concord (5-1) is firmly in second place after tonight's game. This effectively sets up a SPC championship game next week against AL Brown.
The next tier is Cox Mill (4-2) after beating JM Robinson (2-4). Hickory Ridge (3-3) is tied with North West, although NW owns the tie breaker.
So with 1 week left the standing in SPC:
AL Brown 6-0
Cox Mill 4-2
NW Cabarrus 3-3
Mt Pleasant 1-4
