North Stanly overtaken by Mount Pleasant in 28-10 home loss

Two other Stanly teams were involved in shutouts

Visiting Mount Pleasant handed North Stanly a 28-10 defeat Friday in a key Yadkin Valley Conference matchup. 

The Tigers (7-2, 4-0) remained undefeated in conference play after beating the Comets (5-4, 2-2) at R.N. Jeffery Stadium. North proved unable to slow Mount Pleasant running back Keegan Moose, who torched the Comets for more than 200 yards of offense. 

North running back Cam Smith picked up 76 rushing yards along with 107 receiving yards, and quarterback Chance Blake threw for 258 yards but had a few turnovers. 

The Comets will stay in the county and travel to Albemarle (3-6, 1-2) for their regular season finale on Friday night. 

Monroe 61, West Stanly 0 

West Stanly’s losing streak hit six games following its biggest loss of the season, a 61-0 shutout on the road against Monroe. 

The Colts (3-6, 0-3) struggled across the board on Friday against their Rocky River Conference opponent as the Redhawks (8-1, 3-0) scored 42 first-half points to cruise to victory. Monroe currently stands as one of the top 2A teams in the state. 

West will close out its season at Anson (3-6, 0-3) on Friday. 

Albemarle 34, Union Academy 0 

Albemarle put together one of its best performances of the season Friday, shutting out Union Academy 34-0 on the road. 

Now sitting at .500 against Yadkin Valley Conference opponents, the Bulldogs (3-6, 2-2) were more than the Cardinals (1-8, 0-4) could handle, building on a quick 13-0 lead and eventually running away with the game. 

Albemarle and North Stanly will play this week in a showdown of teams tied for third place overall in the conference. 

South Stanly (forfeit) 

South Stanly announced on Oct. 21 that it would forfeit the remaining two games on its schedule due to injuries. The Bulls will finish the season winless in 10 games.
