Game to resume at 7 p.m. Monday at Havelock High

As the rain continued its way to the ground, lightning flashed across the night sky at Havelock High School.

The Craven County rivalry between West Craven and Havelock was suspended at halftime with West Craven leading 7-0. The game will be resumed at 7 p.m. on Monday.

West Craven will open the second half with the football.

Havelock is looking to win its eighth in a row against West Craven and extend its conference win streak that stands at 34 games, 16 at home.

West Craven’s Raquandre Johnson intercepted a pass in the end zone to preserve its 7-0 lead at halftime after the Rams had driven to the Eagle 2-yard line with less than a minute left. Havelock had the ball inside West Craven’s 40-yard line four times in the first half but failed to score.

The Eagles took advantage of a poor Havelock punt, returning the ball to the Ram 4-yard line midway through the first quarter. Two plays later, JonQuez Green punched in a 2-yard touchdown for the only score on a wet and windy night.

West Craven (6-0, 2-0 Coastal 3-A) is ranked ninth in the state. Havelock (7-0, 2-0) is first.
