Patriot Freshmen Top Hoke County 33-0
The Pinecrest freshmen football team (4-1) scored early and often in Thursday’s 33-0 victory over Hoke County in Raeford.
The Patriots turned two long first-quarter drives into a 14-0 lead. Quarterback Christian Ledbetter scored the first touchdown on a 20-yard run. Running back Crash Burns took it in from the six for the other and kicker Kyle Corbett converted both times.
About a 40-yard pass from Ledbetter to Mishak McCrae in the second period set up another touchdown run by the Patriot quarterback. Corbett again kicked the extra point. A scoring run of 10 yards by Maleek Stanford before the intermission made it 27-0.
The final points of the game came on about a 30-yard interception return by Ayinde McKnight. It was his second interception of the game. Brandon Reeves also picked off a Buck pass for the Patriots.
This coming Thursday the Patriots will entertain Scotland High for the second time this season. The Pats were 27-2 victors in the first meeting.
