The quick-strike offense and lockdown defense that is the core of the Havelock football program was on full display Friday in a 44-20 blowout victory over Eastern Wayne.

The Rams raced out to a 34-0 halftime lead and a 44-0 margin after three quarters of play in winning their third straight eastern regional championship. Havelock advances to play Concord in the state championship at 11 a.m. Dec. 14 at Raleigh’s Carter-Finley Stadium.

Havelock coach Jim Bob Bryant pulled his starters on offense and defense at the beginning of the fourth quarter, which is when the Warriors scored all 20 of their points.

The Rams scored on drives of 24 seconds and 15 seconds in the second quarter and forced three Eastern Wayne turnovers.

“I just feel like our program and where it is right now is one of the best in the state of North Carolina,” Bryant said. “The varsity team has only lost one game in three years and hopefully we can still say that after next Saturday.”
