Fuquay-Varina avoids upset in rematch with Wakefield

The Blitz

Fuquay-Varina and Wakefield are no strangers. They met back in early September — a 27-14 win for Fuquay-Varina — but the Bengals had to avoid an upset in a 21-19 win this time around.

The hosts got on the board first. Tyrus Townsend marched 20 yards into Wolverine territory, setting up the first of Caden Linkous’ touchdowns. He scored from a yard out a few drives later.

The second of those scores gave Fuquay-Varina a 14-0 lead at halftime. Wakefield stormed back, but didn’t have quite enough left in the tank.

The Bengals advance to face Wake Forest in the second round.
