High school football: East Rowan battered by West Stanly
OAKBORO — East Rowan played without several standouts on Friday, but even at full strength, the Mustangs would have had their hands full against unbeaten West Stanly.
The 2A Colts flatted the 3A Mustangs 47-6 in a storm-shortened, non-conference contest.
West Stanly (5-0) rushed for 368 yards, passed for 108 and put up 23 first downs to East’s seven.
Junior Jordan Poole, who already has offers from N.C. State, South Carolina, East Carolina and Virginia Tech, rushed for 256 yards on 14 carries and had scoring runs of 85, 56, 45 and 2 yards. He also caught a 35-yard TD pass from quarterback Jordan Manshack.
Poole’s first TD, two minutes into the game, put the Colts ahead to stay.
The only resistance offered by East (2-3) was Sammy Pinckney’s 75-yard scoring run late in the first quarter that cut West Stanly’s lead to 18-6.
Pinckney carried 21 times for 164 yards.
East had zero passing yards.
East is home against Mount Pleasant (2-4) on Oct. 4.
