“We played a good team and we came out flat,” said New Bern coach Bobby Curlings. “Mentally, we were not prepared. I thought we gave a much better effort last week.

“We have to do some soul searching, especially on offense. We have to find out who really wants to play because we saw some going through the motions tonight.”

For the second consecutive game, Sabdo, making his second varsity start at quarterback, didn't throw an interception.He completed 8-of-16 passes for 172 yards.

“I tell my quarterbacks that I don't want any turnovers or sacks,” Bryant said. “He didn't take a sack, he got rid of the ball, he managed the offense very well and hit wide open receivers.”

Rams' running back Derrell Scott didn't find the end zone, yet he still ran for 119 yards on 23 carries. Havelock gained 234 rushing yards, and 406 total yards on offense, a week after struggling against Washington in its opener.

The defense forced New Bern to turn the ball over six times (five fumbles, one interception). Keon Frazier snagged an interception in the fourth quarter.

Hughes passed for 159 yards, but had only two in the second half. DeAuntae Grimes caught nine passes for 97 yards, while Cody Purdie ran for 73 yards on 10 carries.
