VIPERS FOOTBALL PREVIEW
Warren County at Vance County
Saturday, November 3rd, 2018
Can Vance County High School end its first regular football season with back to back wins? The Vipers have their chance on Saturday when they host the Eagles of Warren County.
The Vipers, now 3-7 (2-3 Northern Carolina Conference) narrowly escaped winless J. F. Webb 14-13 at Vance County’s first Homecoming game last Thursday night, and are fortunate to have the home field again for Saturday’s match-up, which was postponed from September 14. The Eagles, 2-7 (1-4 NCC) will meet a more experienced and confident nest of Vipers on Saturday than the winless VC team they would have encountered 6 weeks ago, and Warren County has struggled since September 14, losing 5 in a row.
A win on Saturday might give the Vipers an outside chance at a playoff birth, and Warren’s defense is weak. However, the two offenses are very similar, scoring an average of three touchdowns per game. Crisp passing from Viper QB Samien Burwell, more catches from his receivers, and far fewer penalties should give Vance County that win, and a repeat of last week’s great running game from Devonte Evans wouldn’t hurt, either.
