"This team may be a little faster, but we played together well last year and this team did, too," Crowe said. "I’m very proud of them."

Battle of the bands

While there was a battle on the football field, there was also a battle on opposite sides of the stadium between the Havelock and Concord bands.

Rules prohibit the playing of music during a play, yet when Concord’s band started playing as Havelock had the ball, Havelock responded when Concord had the ball. It came to a head late in the first quarter when officials stopped the game and talked to Bryant, who then relayed a message to the Havelock band to stop playing.

Band director Jorge Benitez told Bryant he was doing only what Concord’s band was doing.

On top of that, both schools have the same music for their respective fight songs.
