Lee County – Northwood

The Lee County Yellow Jackets will begin a 3-game road trip that starts just north of Pittsboro this Friday. The Yellow Jackets will visit the Northwood Chargers of the Big-8 3A Conference in a non-conference matchup. Lee County beat Northwood 35-20 last year in the season opener.

Lee County won their opener 47-18 over EE Smith HS on Monday night with good play on both sides off the ball. AJ Boulware led the Yellow Jacket rushing with 144 yards on 10 carries and Deandre Dingle and Larry Baldwin led the Jacket defense. The 5th ranked Yellow Jackets had zero turnovers in their season opener.

Northwood gave up 50 points to Apex Friendship in their opening game Saturday night to lose 50-14. The Chargers young defense will have to stiffen considerably if they intend to stop the Lee County offense.
