No. 2 Reidsville 75, Graham 0
Why the Rams won
Too many weapons on offense, and a defense that smelled blood from the opening gun, gave a Graham team that didn’t even belong on the field, yet another wake up call.
Why the Red Devils lost
Graham is winless for a reason, and after the Rams put up three scores in the opening period, everyone knew the running clock was coming.
Reidsville — Wide receiver Breon Pass had three touchdowns and running back Lionel Long added two more rushing.
The big play
Pick your poison on a night where nine different people put scores on the board including the point after touchdowns.
Three things we learned
1. Reidsville quarterback Kyle Pinnix is like a fine wine. He gets better with age. He rarely makes mistakes, which was evident on a night where he connected on 6 of 7 passing attempts for 118 yards and three touchdowns to teammate Breon Pass.
2. When the Rams have both the run and the passing game going, it’s usually a long night for the opposition. Running back Lionel Long is a punishing back as was clear after amassing 134 yards on the ground and scoring three touchdowns.
3. Reidsville’s defense often gets overlooked due to the lofty stats the offense puts on the board, but the D’s fourth shutout of the season is what makes the engine go, so says Rams head coach Jimmy Teague. Reidsville held the Red Devils to just 61 total yards of offense.
