West Stanly shut out by Eastern Randolph

Stanly County’s three other teams had bye weeks

After a 3-0 start to the season, the West Stanly Colts varsity football team lost its third straight game Friday, dropping a 42-0 decision to visiting Eastern Randolph. 

The Wildcats (4-1) built a 20-0 lead by halftime and piled on 22 more points in the second half on the Colts (3-3), combining five rushing touchdowns with a passing touchdown. 

Colts quarterback Carson Morton completed 2 of 7 passes, and running backs Shane Mecimore and Rene Salazar combined for 83 rushing yards on 25 carries. 

West will have a bye week before gearing up to start Rocky River Conference play with a home game against Parkwood (3-3) on Oct. 7. 

Albemarle (Bye) 

The Bulldogs (1-4) were off last week, giving them extra time to prepare for this Friday’s Yadkin Valley Conference opener against visiting Robinson (4-1) at 7:30 p.m. 

North Stanly (Bye) 

The Comets (3-2), coming off a pair of wins over West Stanly and Randleman (3-2), also had their bye week and will now start YVC play when Union Academy (1-5) travels to New London on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. 

South Stanly (Bye) 

The winless Bulls (0-5) got a much-needed week off as they look to flip the script with a home game versus YVC opponent Mount Pleasant (4-2) on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. So far this season, South has been outscored 250-23.
