The long non-conference season for PAC-6 4-A football teams comes to an end tonight — and it couldn’t have come at a more auspicious time for a mostly-struggling half dozen, all coming off bye weeks. In other games tonight, Big Eight 3-A Conference powers Southern and Cardinal Gibbons meet in Raleigh with a share of first place on the line. Other Big Eight matchups include Northern Vance at Chapel Hill, Cedar Ridge at co-leader Orange and Oxford Webb at Northwood.
Jordan played keep-away against Northern and got a 4-1 PAC-6 win Monday night. It was the same-old same-old from Jordan. “What they do really well is they win the ball early,” Northern coach Mike Tetreault said. “And they don’t just win it, they direct it. They have a definite area of where they’re attacking, and they’re very disciplined in how they do that. They’re not going to settle.”
After scoring with just second remaining in the first half, Durham Jordan head coach LaDwaun Harrison was hopeful the score would spark his team. The Falcons, however, couldn’t muster any offense in the second half and lost 55-7 at Pinecrest.

Only three others — Greensboro Dudley at Northern, Chapel Hill at Oxford Webb and Bartlett-Yancey at Roxboro Person — will be played in the area, the rest are on the road.
