GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Hurricane Ian weather caused postponements to scheduled high school football games on Thursday night. There were four games made up in our are this evening and a number of others played around the state.

Andrew Frazier connects with Zack Sharpe the first of two touchdowns for him the rams were down 21-8 at the half.

Conley had the ball at the end but on 4th down Vereen knocks it down. Havelock battles back to get a 34-28 win to snap a 2-game losing streak.

“We came out really slow you know what I’m saying. The team did a really good job of staying together and just keep on pushing you know,” says Havelock senior quarterback Andrew Frazier, “Forgetting about the last play and moving on and keep making plays that’s all that got us through this game.”

“It’s very big. We needed a bounce back, bounce back win,” says Havelock senior Javonte Vereen, “We lost two weeks in a row so I stuck in it with the team. We stuck together, we fought and we got the dub.”

“Teams without senior leadership would have quit there. 12,11, 4, and 60 have been a big part of this program. They kind of willed us to a win there. They did everything they could to will us to a win,” says Havelock head coach Allen Wooten, “We got the adjustments too late in my opinion we let them get too many touchdowns after that first one so we live and learn. We got the win and on to Jacksonville.”
