(10-14-17) In North Carolina, many Northwest Guilford football fans were surprised last spring when Head Coach Jared Rolfes resigned and took the head job at conference rival Page. Last night the Pirates came away with a 57-14 win over the Vikings and are now 7-1 on the season and 1-0 in the Metro 4-A.
The Pirates would have a big 2nd quarter scoring 23 points and would cruise the rest of the way in an emotional win for Rolfes. For Page after numerous close calls this season, the Pirates did their thing with no last second heroics needed.
Probably helping Rolfes sleep well at night is his Sophomore QB Javondre Paige, who had 49 yards on 9 carries and 2 TDs and was 10-of-18 passing for 115 yards and 4 TD.
Rolfes told greensboro.com:
“He did a good job tonight. He made some good throws. We didn’t ask him to do a ton beyond the first drive of the third quarter, but he still did everything we asked him to do.”
Next up for the Pirates is High Point Central
