Tarboro High Vikings Defeats SouthWest Edgecombe In The Edgecombe County Game Of The Season With A 32-16 Victory

Congratulations to the Tarboro High Vikings.

I do believe the Cougars could have beat you all if we had not had a bad game. But sometimes this happens. The mistakes that the Cougars had I believe was the deciding factor. I would say Tarboro had a bad night if they had not capitalized on the Cougars mistakes. Not so, they did what they needed to do and therefore they have bragging rights and I ain’t mad with them.

Football Saturday: SouthWest Edgecombe Football Team Made History When They Defeated Jacksonville Northside on Saturday Night In Playoff Game 2

The SouthWest Cougars football team made history on Saturday night when they defeated Jacksonville Northside 28 – 0. Jacksonville Northside is now (9 – 4) and SWE is (13 – 0) with the longest winning season in the school’s history.

SWE defense was on the money. The score shows what the offense did. Someone sitting behind me said they thought this was the best defensive game SWE had however someone said other than when they played Hunt. I didn’t attend that game so I don’t have an opinion.

SWE will host the Reidsville Rams on Friday night after Thanksgiving November 27, 2009. Reidsville have won 45 consecutive games, the fourth longest streak in high school football.

Video of the record setting game should be up within the next 24 – 48 hours.
