Ronnie’s roaming the county: Tonight should be Tasker’s time
Roaming the county getting ready for tonight …
One thing you gotta like about Tasker Fleming. He hasn’t made excuses during North Rowan’s first three losses.
He won’t make any tonight, either, as the the Cavaliers take on Forbush in East Bend.
He won’t have to. He is going to win his first game as North’s head coach.
It’s very unlikely Forbush can win this game.
Jason Rollins of South doesn’t want to be 0-3, and the challenge for his South Rowan Raiders is beating 2-0 Northwest Cabarrus. South is chock full of talented juniors. They need to learn how to win, and getting one tonight would do wonders for the pysche of that program.
There are six more games on a crowded Friday night, and all are at home.
It will be interesting to see how East Rowan does against West Iredell. The Mustangs upset the Warriors last year, and you know West Iredell will come into Granite Quarry with a big chip on its shoulder.
Brian Hinson led East to a seven-win season in 2007. He said earlier in the week that he thinks this year’s Carson team mirrors that one. Players have gotten their brains beaten out for two seasons and are now focused on winning. It will be tough, with Mooresville coming into China Grove tonight.
But Carson is confident. It outgained ó and some say outplayed ó Salisbury last week.
Speaking of Salisbury, the Hornets are the county’s only undefeated team. But they have the county’s worst defense, giving up 237 yards per game on the ground.
They’re still favored tonight, of course.
The only thing for sure tonight is that West Rowan will defeat North Iredell in a laugher.
On the air tonight …
At Ludwig Stadium, you can hear WSTP 1280 AM’s dynamic duo of Howard Platt and Wilson Cherry broadcasting the Salisbury game. That is, if you can hear them over P.A. man Windsor Eagle’s booming voice.
WSAT 1280 AM will be bringing live reports from several locations.
Carl Ford will be at South Rowan on WRNA 1140 AM.
Go to a game tonight folks. And enjoy it.
