NC jumps on Panthers quickly en route to third straight win
TRISTAN MCCATHERN SCORED FOUR first half touchdowns in helping lead North Central to a 52-32 win over McBee on Friday night.
File this in the “Looks can be deceiving” file.Upon first glance, it may appear as if North Central was given a bit of a run for its money in Friday’s 52-32 victory over host McBee. Upon closer inspection, however, that argument does not hold water.The Knights cruised to a 40-12 halftime lead and then, stepped off the proverbial gas in the second half as Louis Clyburn’s troops went to their bench in holding out several starters who sustained what the fourth-year NC head coach termed “some bumps and bruises” earlier in the non-region contest.Regardless of who was or was not on the field at the end, what cannot be disputed is the fact that the Knights have now won three straight games, something which they have not accomplished in since 2007, while improving to 3-1 heading into this Friday’s rivalry game at Andrew Jackson.For the third time in as many weeks, the NC offense exploded for big numbers. The 52 points represents the most points scored in the Clyburn era in Boonetown and gives the Knights 149 points scored in their past three contests.“Our offense is hitting on all cylinders,” Clyburn said.
