Wallace-Rose Hill Wins 1A State Title

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- Omar Carr's two-point conversion run in overtime Saturday lifted Wallace-Rose Hill to a 38-to-37 win over Mt. Airy in the Class 1-A North Carolina High School Athletic Association championship.

Carr finished with 117 yards rushing for the Bulldogs (14-2), who won their first title in Class 1-A. Wallace-Rose Hill won the 2-A title in 1994.
Luke Wheeler and Andy Temoney each ran for two touchdowns and Tyler Hull hit a 33-yard field goal for the Granite Bears (15-1), who rallied from an 11-point deficit early in the third quarter to lead 30-to-27 with 11 minutes left in the fourth quarter.

But the Bulldogs forced overtime on Jose Flores' 38-yard field goal with 2:08 left.

    Congratulations to WRH. Let's not forget that it was a great game, and could have gone either way. We are proud of our Mt. Airy Bears for their quality of play, sportsmanship, and, mostly, the maturity and dignity they showed in this great competition.
