Friday Night High School Football Scoreboard - August 19th

by Jeff Fisher
High School Football America

The 2011 regular season in the Lower 48 began Friday night.

The biggest news last night came out of North Carolina where a couple of long win streaks came to an end.

The nation's longest active win streak ended when Mooresville beat West Rowan 21-14.  West Rowan, which had won 46 straight, jumped-out to a 14-0 lead, but Mooresville scored two touchdowns in a three minute span in the fourth quarter to pull-out the victory.

The longest active win streak now belongs to Phoebus (Hampton, VA).  The Phantoms have won 45 straight.

Back on July 21st, I spoke with West Rowan head coach Scott Young on the High School Football America radio show about the pressure of the streak and four-straight 3A state championships.  Click here to listen to that interview and the entire show.

Meanwhile, two-time defending state champ Butler saw its 31-game win streak end.

Mallard Creek beat the Bulldogs 28-20.  It was the first game new Butler head coach Brian Hales, who took over for Mike Newsome, who left the Bulldogs to take the head coaching job at A.J. Brown High School in Kannapolis (North Carolina).

Mallard Creek was led by quarterback Andrew Goodman threw for two touchdowns.
