Sports Briefs: S.P. Resident Wins Weekly Football Contest
John Weaver of Southern Pines grabbed the first-place money in this week’s football contest.
Weaver went 15-1 to grab the check for $50.
Now, the battle for second and third was a bit more interesting.
Brian Norris of Aberdeen, Jamie Tindall of Wagram, Bo McEachern of Southern Pines, Zane Grey of Biscoe, Jessika Harmon of Biscoe, Craig Reaser of Pinehurst, and Johnny Ward of Pinehurst all finished 14-2, causing the tiebreaker game to come into play.
That game was Minnesota at Seattle, a game that ended with the Seahawks winning 30-20 for a total of 50 points being scored.
So using that number, the second place winner is Norris, who had 47 for his tiebreaking number. He gets the $30 second-place check.
Third place came down to Ward and Reaser, with both of them having 42 for their tiebreaker number. So, it was necessary to go to the next step in tiebreakers, the ol’ pull ’em out of the hat trick.
Ward’s name was drawn out of the hat, so he ends up with the $20 third-place check.
In the overall battle, Stephanie Flores and David Weaver (good week for the Weavers) are leading the season-long standings, both with a 97-47 record. Jody Britt is close behind, sporting a 96-48 overall mark, while Jamie Tindall is next in line with a 95-49 mark.

Mustangs Fall in Second Round
East Surry ended North Moore’s season in the second round of the 1-A boys’ soccer playoffs.
Playing in Pilot Mountain, the two teams battled to a 0-0 tie at halftime, but East Surry scored three goals in the second half to take the 3-0 win.
The game featured an extremely uptempo and aggressive style of play, according to Mustang coach Michael Shamberger. He also said that both teams had scoring opportunities in the first half, but neither team was able to cash in.
East Surry was able to cash in during the second half, scoring the match’s first goal about three minutes into the second half, on a play that the Mustangs defenders and keeper thought was offsides, according to Shamberger.
After that play, East Surry broke through the Mustangs for two more goals, earning the right to advance to the third round of the playoffs.
North Moore ended its season with a final record of 11-5-1 overall and 8-1-1 in Yadkin Valley Conference play.
