VIPERS FOOTBALL PREVIEW
7:00 PM at Beddingfield in Wilson on Thursday, August 30
In observance of the upcoming Labor Day weekend, the VCHS Vipers will take another lengthy road trip (but not as long as last week) to Wilson this Thursday night to tangle with the Bruins of Beddingfield. The Bruins, a traditional 2A powerhouse with playoff appearances in 4 of the last 5 years, have been successfully raiding the Northern Carolina 2A conference the past two years. Northern Vance scored their first 12 points of the season against Beddingfield this time last year, but still lost 38-12; and J. F. Webb suffered a similar fate, losing to the Bruins last year 30-0 and last week 43-6. Under new head coach James Ward last year, the Bruins had their best season since 2013, finishing 8-5 overall and 4-1 in their conference. They were tripped up in the second round of the playoffs, though. To make a good showing on Thursday, the Vipers will need to continue the improvements they made in last week’s match up with Red Springs, and keep showing the stubborn spirit that resulted in late scores in each of their first two games this year.
