CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte Catholic made it 16 consecutive winning seasons Friday, holding on for a 10-7 victory at South Meck.
The Cougars, who have notched four shutouts thus far in 2015, brought that defense down Park Road Friday, limiting South Meck’s offense all night long in a defensive struggle. The Sabres were unable to capitalize on special teams throughout the game, missing a 40-yard field goal with just under two minutes to play in the first quarter.
Rocky White’s team made good on that mistake in the second, finding the endzone to take a 7-0 lead with 3:22 to play in the first half. Later, South Meck missed a 52-yard field goal just before the half, taking their 7-0 lead to the locker room.
Charlotte Catholic got on the board midway through the third quarter, with a 42-yard field goal. The Cougars’ defense picked off South Meck, but Catholic gave it right back on a first down fumble. Jaret Anderson put the mistakes behind him in the game’s final frame, rushing for the game-wining touchdown with seven minutes to play.
Charlotte Catholic takes on West Meck at home next week.
