Now friends and teammates, quarterbacks were on opposing sides in 42-40 thriller

Plus, Hardy always has 2008, when his Eagles thumped the Rams 47-0 in Webster’s first year as a starting quarterback his sophomore year.

Both admit that their schedules at ECU don’t allow them much time to focus on how their alma maters are doing on the football field. However, they both say they will be paying a little more attention as the rivals prepare to meet for a 46th time at 7 p.m. Friday at West Craven.

They said there is no friendly wager, but if the loser had to wear the winning team’s jersey, Webster has an idea what would happen.

"He don’t want that because he’ll have to wear that Havelock jersey the whole week," Webster joked.

Either way, they expect the contest between the 9-1 Rams and 5-5 Eagles to add to the rivalry.

"It’s always a good game," Hardy said.

"Yeah, it will definitely be a good game," Webster added. "It will be a good matchup. It will be exciting, and it’s going to be a sellout. Havelock travels."
