Thursday’s 3-A/4-A Eastern Carolina Conference football championship game ended in an all-out brawl, as South Central (10-0, 6-0) defeated D.H. Conley (7-3, 5-1), 28-27.

Following the end of the heated contest, South Central fans stormed the field, where a flag was planted in the Vikings’ turf. The incident sparked a large fight between Conley players and South Central students and players. 

When asked about the incident, Falcons head coach Andy Tew said he knew nothing of the flag being planted. Conley head coach Nate Conner said the fight “took away from what was an awesome game.”

Turnovers were the key, as Conley quarterback Nick Hamilton finished 15-for-25, throwing for 202 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions. The Vikings had five total turnovers. Running back Jemere Artis was the Falcons’ leading rusher with 12 rushes for 176 yards.

SC defensive end Jeremy Lewis proved to have the biggest play of the game, blocking a Caleb Escamilla kick in the third quarter to keep the surging Vikings down by just one point.

A ruling on the fight has not been received by either school yet from the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, but both were expecting a decision either later Monday or Tuesday.

The Falcons travel to Hertford County to end their regular season on Friday.

AYDEN-GRIFTON 25, GREENE CENTRAL 6 

The Chargers jumped on the Rams to move to third in the 2-A Eastern Carolina Conference following their win Thursday. A-G took advantage of a sluggish GC offense, providing momentum ending third-down stops. 

The Chargers (6-4, 3-2) will hit the road Friday to take on South Lenoir, while the Rams (6-4, 3-2) will head to Kinston to take on the conference-leading Vikings.

FARMVILLE CENTRAL 49, NORTH PITT 28

The Jaguars ended a season they would rather forget with a win over North Pitt in Bethel. FC running back Rahshae Owens had a big night, rushing for 135 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries.  Panthers quarterback Alex Espinosa-Johnson also had his best outing of the season, going 8-for-17 for 134 passing yards and four total touchdowns.

J.H. ROSE 49, NEW BERN 14 

The Rampants took care of business and padded their record at 7-3, 4-2 with a 49-14 win over New Bern Friday night. Quarterback Grant Jarman tossed four touchdown passes, two of which went to wide receiver Ben Harris, who finished with eight receptions for 97 yards and two scores. Playoff-bound Rose looks prepared to enter postseason play as it awaits its seeding.
