Derrell Scott ran for 91 yards; Taylor Woods ran for a touchdown; Julian Cuthbertson recovered two fumbles; B.J. Boyd snagged an interception.

The Havelock Ram seniors went out with a bang in their home finale. The 11 seniors accomplished a feat that most high school football players only dream about.

With their 44-20 victory over Eastern Wayne on Friday, the Rams will play for their third-straight 3A state championship.

The Rams (15-0) will play Concord, in a rematch of last year’s state finals, at 11 a.m. next Saturday in Raleigh. Havelock beat Concord (15-0) 55-21 in the finals last season in Winston-Salem.

Havelock has an opportunity to become the 12th prep football team, since the state championship game was initiated in 1972, to claim at least three-consecutive titles.

This group of seniors turned the Rams into a powerhouse.

They are 46-1 over the past three seasons with a pair of state championships. For those seniors who have played all four varsity seasons, the Rams’ record is 57-5 in four years.
