The West Craven Eagles came out of the locker room like lions Friday. Havelock did too, in a 44-7 Rams’ victory in Vanceboro.

The win was Havelock coach Jim Bob Bryant’s 100th of his career (42-19 at Greene Central, 58-11 at Havelock.)

“It feels great to be able to do it with my assistants and these kids,” Bryant said. “We really are a brotherhood here at Havelock and it meant a lot to everybody.”

West Craven’s T.K. Evans took the first play from scrimmage 45 yards to put the Eagles in scoring territory.

With the door open for an early score, Havelock’s defense promptly slammed it by forcing a fumble on the goal line and recovering the ball in the end zone for a touchback.

Then, a “big-time player” made a “big-time play.”

On the Rams’ first play from scrimmage, quarterback Pharoh Cooper kept the ball, and weaved his way to the left sideline, leaving the Eagles in the dust on an 80-yard touchdown run.
