Mount Pleasant wins at Carson behind Reece, defense

The Mount Pleasant Tigers won 31-15 at Jesse Carson behind a strong defense and another big performance from running back Cody Reece. He carried the ball 28 times for 280 yards and two touchdowns. It was the Tigers’ third straight win. Here is the Charlotte Observer’s top performers list along with other regional highlights: Charlotte area round-up

Reid, Black help Spiders remain unbeaten

The Concord Spiders’ star running back Rocky Reid carried the ball 34 times for 209 yards as the Spiders beat East Rowan 29-12. Quarterback Keenan Black was nine of 15 passing for 164 yards and two touchdowns.

Black left the game in the second half with an injury. Right now his status for next week is in doubt.

The Spiders (5-0, 3-0) travel to Central Cabarrus for a big South Piedmont Conference next Friday.

Reid, who is now the all-time leading rusherfor Concord, is about 520 yards behind Nick Maddox of the A.L. Brown for the Cabarrus County record. Right now we don’t have the official rushing total for Reid and there have been different reported rushing totals in recent weeks.

Perry comes up big Wonders’ win

Daveon Perry scored the A.L. Brown Wonders’ first two touchdowns in a 33-12 win over North Mecklenburg to open MeCKa Conference play. Perry returned a fumble 42 yards for a TD and later returned a kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown. He later picked off a Viking pass.

Mullen and Bulls’ D key win over Central Cabarrus

Nate Mullen scored two fourth quarter touchdowns to help the Hickory Ridge Ragin’ Bulls rally from a 17-7 deficit to defeat Central Cabarrus 21-17. Jaylen Rudisell also had a 59-yard TD run for the Bulls. Rudisell had 20 carries for 130 yards. Hickory Ridge, known for its explosive offense, held the Vikings to just 12 first downs. Kyle Tyson had 18 tackles to lead the defensive effort.

Daiyann Fuller led the Vikings with 148 yards rushing on 12 carries, including a 51-yard TD run. Xavier Harris had 22 carries for 121 yards and a touchdown.

Cox Mill wins the Coddle Creek Cup

The Cox Mill Chargers rolled up big numbers and held the Northwest Cabarrus offense in check for a 56-0 win. The win gives the Chargers the Coddle Creek Cup.

Charlotte 49ers go to 3-0, Davidson falls at VMI, EZ Smith honored

Phillips big again in 40-28 win over N.C. Central

Former A.L. Brown Wonder Kalif Phillips rushed for 102 yards and two TDs in the Charlotte 49ers win in Durham. He did not play the fourth quarter after suffering  a bruised shoulder.  Charlotte built a 40-0 lead before the Eagles came back in the second half.

Charlotte (3-0) travels to Elon Saturday at 7 p.m.

VMI drops Wildcats despite offensive explosion

Davidson junior wide receiver William Morris caught a career-high 16 passes for 208 yards, but miscues proved costly as VMI defeated the Wildcats, 52-24.

Morris’ 16 catches were one shy of the single-game Davidson (1-2) record of 17, shared by Mike Mikolayunas ’70 and Lanny Funsten ’13, and his 208 yards ranked as the fifth-most in a single game in Davidson history. Likewise, senior quarterback J.P. Douglas also enjoyed a career day, as he completed 28 of 41 passing attempts for 317 yards – all career highs – and threw one touchdown to Morris along with one interception when he was hit as he threw.

Junior running back David Rogers gained 103 yards on 10 rushes with two touchdowns, helping Davidson rack up 531 yards of offense, it’s most since racking up 566 against Johnson C. Smith in 2011.

However, VMI (1-2) started fast and made big plays to maintain the lead throughout the contest, gaining 597 yards of offense. Davidson was only able to come away with one field goal in three red zone trips in the first half, and surrendered a pair of turnovers in the second half to nullify promising drives.

Davidson opens PFL play Saturday, hosting Morehead State at 1 p.m.
