Bradley Stewart, Sports Writer

With the State Playoffs approaching for nearly every fall sport, the intensity has been turned up.  Green Hope responded to the pressure with another dominating week in athletics.  Here is a weekly wrap-up of last week’s athletic performances:   



The Green Hope football team demolished Riverside, 31-14, on Senior Night. Senior Paul Robinson ran for two early touchdowns to essentially put the game away.  Dylon Washington also scored for Green Hope.   Willie Taylor threw a 60 yard touchdown pass to Jordyn Adams to extend the Falcons’ lead.  The defense also came up big with Ethan Melton and Devon Mickens’ interceptions and an Andrew Becvar blocked punt.  Green Hope is now 7-2 and is ranked 10th in the News & Observer Top 25.


The Week Ahead:

Friday @ 7:00 at Jordan


Cross Country:

Green Hope men’s and women’s cross country won the Tri-6 Conference Championship last Wednesday.  Peyton Barish and Finn McBride finished first and second in the race, both finishing in just under 15:40.  In the girl’s race, Kelsey Vogel, Tess Davila, and Zoey Davila, finished second, third, and fourth, respectively.
