Cuthbertson reaches milestone win

While the Cuthbertson football program had made strides in its previous three years of existence, the Cavs still hadn’t beaten a non-conference foe until downing Harrisburg Hickory Ridge last week, 16-14.

The Cavs were paced by receiver Emmitt Afam’s seven-catch, 131-yard performance, which included a touchdown from quarterback Ryan Kendall, who also booted three field goals, including the game-winner late in the contest.

“We play a pretty brutal non-conference slate with Weddington, Marvin Ridge, (Mint Hill) Rocky River and Hickory Ridge – they’re all (Class) 3A and 4A schools,” said Cuthbertson coach Mike Roark. “That was not by design. That’s just kind of how it worked out.

For us to be in a better circumstance than we were is exciting.

“Any time you win a football game, it’s a great feeling. One of the goals this year was to improve upon last year. So from a nonconference standpoint, we will have done that.”

The Cavs will try to improve their nonconference mark this week when they travel to rival Marvin Ridge.
