Rocky Mount vs. Northern Nash - The Series

As controversial as their 2009 matchup was, Northern Nash will be really psyched about making this year's trip to Rocky Mount.

The Gryphons have won seven meetings in a row and shutout the Knights four of their last six meetings. But with Collins Cuthell scoring a questionable touchdown with less than four seconds left in their 15-12 meeting at Death Valley last November, Northern's players and coaches have had this game in their sights since.

Will Rocky Mount's rule of the series end this season and put the Knights atop the Big East Conference? Will the Gryphons end their season on a high note?

Well, that's why they play the game - and we all will get to see it Friday starting at 7:30 p.m.

SERIES TRENDS:

1. Rocky Mount has won 14 times scoring 21 points or less. Northern has done it nine times.

2. Rocky Mount has shut out Northern Nash six times - four times in the last six seasons, but the Knights have never shut out the Gryphons.

3. Until Northern's first-quarter score in the 2007 tilt, the Knights went scoreless in the series for straight 14 quarters.

4. Both teams have won a contest in overtime.

5. Rocky Mount is the first team in the series to win seven consecutive games.

6. The two teams actually played a game at Nash Central. Yes, in NCHS' first season of existence (had only a JV team - 2002), RM played all its home games at Nash Central's Dawg Pound due to terrible field conditions at Rocky Mount. That was also the last year NN beat RM (47-6).
