Carson-North Iredell preview

nTime: 7:30 p.m.
nRecords: North Iredell 1-6, 0-2 NPC; Carson 4-4, 1-2 NPC
nSeries: North Iredell leads 3-0
nLast meeting: The Raiders won 10-6 in 2008 for maybe the Cougars’ most frustrating loss of the season
nLast week: North Iredell lost to West Iredell 33-13; Carson fell to West Rowan 69-14
nNext week: North Iredell is at Statesville; Carson is at rival South Rowan
nGame notes: Carson goes from facing the NPC’s best team to facing what certainly appears to be its weakest and has every opportunity to get back on the winning path. The Cougars still have a good shot at the program’s first winning season, but they have to get this one against a school they’ve never beaten.Shaun “Bush” Warren’s amazing season continued last week with 111 rushing yards against West Rowan. That’s like 311 against most teams.
Warren has scored 17 TDs and is rushing for 172.5 yards per game. He’s No. 2 in the county rushing behind West’s K.P. Parks.
Cody Clanton is the No. 2 receiver in the county with 25 catches for 579 yards and six TDs, while Zach Smith is a solid No. 2 receiver.
Zack Gragg ranks second in the county passing stats with 743 yards.
Carson’s defensive numbers took a major hit last week, sending the Cougars to the bottom of the stats. West put up the most points Carson has ever allowed in a game. It is now giving up 25 points per night, but it’s still capable of putting up a shutout against North Iredell. Ryan Shoaf and Garrett Smith will be among the leaders for the Cougars.
North Iredell’s win was 14-0 against West Lincoln. QB Chris Van Hoose has thrown for 380 yards but been picked off 11 times. Josh Rodriguez (230 rushing yards) paces the ground attack. ó Mike London
