Rustburg - Friday was the first day a lot of area teams could scrimmage outside competition.
The Rustburg Red Devils hosted Northside. The Red Devils are working on their passing game, Anthony Lovelace finds Brent Thacker and number 10 fighting for the yards, carrying Vikings with him, good effort by Thacker. Northside, though, got the better of Rustburg in this one, Jaylen Hill picks off Lovelace and number 5 is taking it the other way to the house for a Vikings touchdown. Vikings quarterback Dominic Dunnaville looked sharp, escaping trouble with his legs then making the Red Devils pay with a TD pass. Northside will be a tough out for anybody this season. Season openers are in two weeks, August 30.
Jack Baker, RUSTBURG HEAD COACH, said "We gave up three big plays that they were able to capitalize and score on so that's a little disappointing. But play in and play out, we didn't play poorly on defense, we just gave up some big ones."
