AND HERE'S THE PITCH. Nash Central Middle School quarterback Matthew Johnson tosses the ball to a running back during last Thursday's home football showdown against the Phillips Bulldogs.
NASHVILLE -- Nash Central Middle School beat the weather last Thursday, but couldn't get past the Phillips Bulldogs.
The Trojans' Tri-County Conference showdown against the Bulldogs was played as schedule, despite the looming threat of heavy rainfall.
The rain came not long after the conclusion of the contest, which was claimed by visiting Phillips at the NCMS Football Field.
NC head coach Matt Lancaster knew his club had to play in mistake-free fashion to have a chance against the talented Bulldogs, but that would not be the case as Phillips controlled the proceedings by a 26-0 margin.
