Harding Rams Win Bounce Back Game

Harding won this non-conference match 20-14, please enjoy these select highlights from this game courtesy of Shiree Glenn of Charlotte Football Insiders

The Harding Rams held on to beat Rocky River Ravens 20-14, last Friday night.

The Ravens have now fallen to 0-3 for the season and have a ton of questions to answer. Rocky River was not without scrap though—they hung in with Harding until the very end. Senior wide receivers Antjuan Collins and Isaiah Mcilwain were the stars that night as they each grabbed touchdowns from fellow Senior QB Korey Hailey.

The Rams did not disappoint scoring on both the offense and the defense. Junior defensive end, Tylon Dunlap and senior running back Maleik Faust scored the two on offense while senior Dekerius Thompson posted an interception for a touchdown on defense. This win at home for the Rams was a great bounce-back win and one that was much-needed. 

The Ravens have a bye this week so let’s see how they use the time off to regroup themselves for their game against Butler High School on Sept 27. They have had a couple of close games and have the formula to convert those into wins. It will be a hostile crowd for them as they travel to their second straight away game.

Harding will play the North Mecklenburg Vikings this Friday night at North Meck. The Vikings are 0-3 for the season and will be looking for some get back against the Rams. This will be another test for Harding. Will they prevail?

 Kick-off for both games will be at 7 p.m.

Harding Rams Win Second Game in Short Week

The Harding Rams defeated the Garinger Wildcats 69-8 in Week 2 Action. Highlights courtesy of CFI's Shiree Glenn

The Harding Rams trounced the Garinger Wildcats 69 to 8 for their second game in just one week.

The very beginning of the game showed promise of a shootout thanks to an interception by Garinger’s Jah Overby that turned into a quick eight for their offense. But the Rams had a different agenda.

Harding’s offense, led by senior quarterback, Jarret Robinson, put on an offensive clinic the rest of the game. They went on to score 69 unanswered points and left Garinger scratching their heads trying to figure out how to stop them. Robinson connected with multiple receivers including Tyquez Johnson and Yashiya Freeman.

Defense didn’t disappoint either as Tylon Dunlap came up with key plays of his own including sacking Garinger quarterback, Elias Bethea.

The game got chippy at times—partially due to the lopsided score—but both teams were able to maintain themselves as the game went on.

There are so many questions left for the Wildcats to answer as they prepare to take on the Hawks of West Meck. The Hawks won a defensive battle against West Charlotte but look to improve on their spread-type offense. Can the Wildcats contain them for another week? 

The Harding Rams face West Charlotte—call it the battle of the maroon and gold. Harding is pumping on all cylinders with offense and defense working well together. West Charlotte has fallen to 1-1 so look for them to play inspired football. Can the Rams improve to 3-0?

Kickoff for both games at 7 p.m.
