...PATCHY DENSE FOG ACROSS THE WESTERN PIEDMONT...
OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF HOURS, PATCHY DENSE FOG HAS DEVELOPED
ACROSS THE WESTERN PIEDMONT. REDUCED VISIBILITY OF ONE-QUARTER OF
A MILE OR LESS CAN RESULT IN HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS.
DRIVERS ARE URGED TO SLOW DOWN, USE LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS, AND
LEAVE PLENTY OF DISTANCE BETWEEN OTHER VEHICLES. IF THE DENSE FOG
PERSISTS, A DENSE FOG ADVISORY MAY BE NEEDED.
Dudley running back Marlon Darby looks for a hole in the line during the game against Western Guilford in Greensboro, N.C., on Friday, November 8, 2019.
Why the Panthers won: They pounced on Western Guilford and scored with the ground game early and often. When the Hornets were knocking on the door for their first score, a fumble turned into a 99-yard defensive touchdown by Dudley linebacker Jaylan Richardson.
Why the Hornets lost: Besides two impressive kickoff returns for touchdowns and a trick play that went deep to senior Dante Bovian, the Hornets really struggled on offense and defense.
The big play: After an interception by Dudley's Branson Adams, he took a carry on the following drive and found the end zone to make the score 14-0.
Western Guilford — Dante Bovian – 204 all-purpose yds. 2 Total TD.
Three things we learned:
1. In the cold November weather, it is very difficult to bring down a Dudley ball carrier.
2. The Panthers ended the regular season on an extremely strong note with a three-game winning streak and clinched a share of the Conference title.
3. Dudley seems to trust all of their ball carriers, and the Dudley coaching staff seems to rotate them in and out to keep them fresh.
Records: Dudley 9-2 (4-1); Western Guilford 5-6 (1-4)
What They’re Saying:
“We played really hard, but we made some mistakes on special teams. We have to clean that up before the playoffs… Around noon sometime tomorrow, we will figure out who we play next, and we will go from there.”
