LNP’s Great Eight Poll
1. DAVIDSON DAY (7-0)
The Patriots scored 42 points last week to remain unbeaten. It was a season-low in points. That folks, is a potent offense.
This week: Metrolina Christian
2. HOUGH (6-1)
Seven turnovers, including two on their first two possessions, doomed the Huskies in a first-place showdown against Mallard Creek last week.
This week: at Kannapolis Brown
3. EAST LINCOLN (6-1)
Ugly victories count, too. The Mustangs weren’t sharp in a 14-10 win against Bunker Hill, but it kept them in the conference lead.
This week: at Newton-Conover
4. MOORESVILLE (6-1)
The Blue Devils’ fine season rolls on. They’re locked in a first-place conference tie with rival Lake Norman, which is what both fan bases crave.
This week: at North Lincoln
5. LAKE NORMAN (5-2)
High-scoring, wild-ending games seem to be the norm for the Wildcats. Last week, quarterback Josh Ladowski accounted for 596 yards.
This week: West Iredell
6. WEST MECKLENBURG (6-1)
The Hawks got back on track with a 35-10 victory against South Mecklenburg last week. It’ll be a tough test this week.
This week: Olympic
7. SOUTHLAKE CHRISTIAN (6-1)
The Eagles hopefully used the bye week to rebound physically and emotionally from their first loss.
This week: at Trinity Christian
8. NORTH MECKLENBURG (3-4)
The Vikings are battling some injuries to key players. They allowed too many long, time-consuming drives against Hopewell last week.
This week: Concord Robinson
