For many of the team's members that played at Albemarle, it was another chance to earn a football victory against familiar opponents in the long-standing rivalry between the two high schools.
This round in the semi-pro ranks went to the Stanly County Panthers convincingly with a 56-12 win over Thomasville.
The game featured the return to the football field of former Albemarle and N.C. State standout T.A. McLendon, who rushed for three touchdowns Saturday.
