The Sauras didn’t fare well in Friday’s 34-0 season opener against East Wilkes at Edd Tharpe Field in Ronda.
“I thought we had a lot of first game jitters,” said coach Jonathan Frasher. “We had too many mistakes in the first half and shot ourselves in the foot. There were too many turnovers and penalties.”
In spite of the shutout, Frasher praised senior Robbie Hennelly for 10 tackles, six assists, a sack, and causing two fumbles.
“He played a heck of a game on both sides of the football,” he said. “Keelan (Goodwin) also had a really good opening kick.”
South hosts North Wilkes Friday beginning at 7:30.
South recognizes Gore on Friday
South Stokes will honor Keith Gore this Friday at halftime by naming their athletic complex after the former coach.
“Our football stadium is now known as the Keith Gore Athletic Complex. Coach Gore spent 30 years coaching, teaching, and mentoring the students of this community,” said principal Wayne Duggins.
