Sweet Win over NW!

GREENSBORO — Ragsdale scored 18 second-half points, including Brad Davis’ 33-yard field goal with 5:52 remaining, to lift the Tigers to a 24-21 victory over Northwest Guilford at R.L. Billings Stadium on Friday.

The win is No. 3 Ragsdale’s seventh straight, and puts the Tigers (8-1, 4-0) alone atop the Piedmont Triad 4-A, while the homecoming loss snaps a four-game winning streak for No. 6 Northwest (6-3, 3-1)....(read more)

Davis’ fourth-quarter kick was his third field goal of the night. The other two came in the first half from distances of 29 and 32 yards, respectively, and was all the points that Ragsdale could muster as it trailed 14-6 at intermission.
The Tigers scored two second-half touchdowns, one on D-onovan Smith’s six-yard run in the third quarter followed by a two-point conversion and the other on Barry Brown’s 3-yard scamper in the fourth, to pull even at 21-21 with 11:19 remaining.

“Tackling was our Achilles’ heel tonight,” Northwest coach Joe Woodruff said. “We missed some tackles, and we had penalties that killed drives.”

Northwest quarterback Matt Pawlowski completed eight passes on 14 attempts, including two long touchdowns of 53 yards to Ryan Overcash and 94 yards to Reid Baxter.

Baxter also scored on a 10-yard run to put the Vikings ahead 7-0 in the first quarter.

Brown led all rushers, carrying 14 times for 155 yards, with 90 of those coming in the second half.

“We saw on film that they ran a lot of (line)backers, and we ran some stunts and ran our zone offense,” said Brown. “We knew this was a big game coming in here with it being their homecoming, and we’ve been working hard all year long in practice to do well in big games like this.”

Ragsdale quarterback Luke Heavner completed 15 of 22 passes for 180 yards, a two-point conversion and no touchdowns.

“Our defense came up big tonight in the second half,” said Ragsdale coach Tommy Norwood. “We’re playing a lot of sophomores on defense, and not a lot of seniors. We’ve played in a lot of big football games, and I’m proud of our kids tonight, because I feel like they took advantage of some opportunities.”

Be the first to comment on this story. KERNERSVILLE — It took almost all of four quarters, but Luke Heavner finally showed the value of a senior signal caller.
The Ragsdale quarterback had only completed six passes all game in a stagnant showing by the Tiger offense, but apparently all he needed was a little pressure.
With a shade over 3 minutes left on the clock and his team down 7-3, Heavner found his efficiency and marched Ragsdale (6-1) 65 yards for the game-winning score, ...

Jack King (L), 80, and Alan Johnson, 77, have attended more than 200 Ragsdale football games.

As the air turns crisp and a cooler breeze ripples through one's hair, the changing season brings to mind two things: School is back in session and it's football season. Walking into Kenneth T. Miller Stadium, Ragsdale's home turf, one may notice the familiar constants of the field, scoreboard, blue-and-white decked fans, and even the concession stand. But there's another consistency that may not be as noticeable: longtime friends Jack King and Alan Johnson, ...

Article From the Jamestown News and Mike Ellis

Ragsdale scored on their first two possessions of the game and continued to utilize the big play to roll over the Parkland Mustangs Friday night as they opened Piedmont Triad 4A conference play with a convincing 47-8 win. Although Parkland had possession of the football for almost twice as long as Ragsdale, they could not convert their drives into points and could not find a way to stop the Tigers. Ragsdale built up a 20-0 halftime advantage, then used an interception return for a touchdown by Avery Washington to start the second half and scored on their only three second-half possessions to dominate the Mustangs...
