East-West All-Star football game
Jamieson Stadium, Greensboro
Why the West won
Page coach Doug Robertson's squad played mistake-free football and won the field-position battle, thanks to the punting of North Davidson's Jake Marion. The game's only points came on a 1-yard touchdown run by Hezekia Newby (Eastern Guilford) and an extra-point kick by Jake Marion (North Davidson). The TD was set up by a 38-yard pass from Brody Whitson (Asheville T.C. Roberson) to Caleb Borders (Boiling Springs Crest).
