Vikes Topple Mustangs
Mitchell McNeill put on a show in Robbins Friday in leading Union Pines to a 48-12 win over North Moore in an inter-county non-conference football game.
McNeill, a running back, put up 342 all-purpose yards, scoring on a 55-yard run, a 90-yard kickoff return and hooking up with Dakota Gallant on a 36-yard touchdown pass for the Vikings. McNeill finished with 201 yards on 10 rushes, while Gallant posted three touchdown receptions. Two of Gallant's touchdowns came on passes from quarterback Taylor O'Neil.
Both Mustang scores came on Xavier Scotten tosses to Kenyon Smith, one covering 66 yards and the other 14 yards.
Graham Haulsee provided a one-yard plunge for a score in the third quarter, while Chris Rubinowski provided the final Viking score on a seven-yard run late in the fourth quarter.
Union Pines is now 3-1 on the season, while North Moore fell to 3-0.
