Cavaliers Upended On the Road at Harnett Central 52-7

Former Southern Lee Quarterback De’Andre McCallister celebrated Senior Night at Harnett Central by leading the Trojans to a 52-7 victory over the Cavaliers at Harnett Central. For the second straight game the Cavalier offense found trouble moving the ball down the field consistently in managing just 7 points for the third straight week.  Sophomore running back Kendall Morris’ 22-yard 3rd quarter touchdown run gave the Southern Lee it’s only score on the night. 

Harnett Central (2-2, 2-4) outrushed the Cavaliers 416 to 49 to keep control of the game throughout. Southern Lee (1-3, 2-4) had chances to sustain drives but 5 Cavalier turnovers proved too much to overcome. Freshman Reggie Butler had a first half interception for Southern Lee that stopped a potential Trojan scoring drive. 

Southern Lee will conclude the 2021 Spring Season next Friday night as they host Lee County in the annual Brick City Bowl Classic. Harnett Central will conclude their season next week at Triton.
