I apologize for posting so late; it's been a busy week around here.
UnioNCounty Football has named Monroe's quarterback, Matthew Bennett, the offensive player of the week and Cuthbertson's linebacker, Kurt Petroff, the defensive player of the week.
Bennett was instrumental in Monroe's home 35-24 victory over Anson on Saturday night. The senior QB for the Redhawks threw for 145 yards with four passing touchdowns and one rushing TD that was the go-ahead and eventual game-winning score. Bennett was involved in every touchdown scored. Congratulations to Matthew on being selected as the Offensive Player of the Week for week one action.
Petroff had a career night in Cuthbertson's 34-20 road win at South Iredell on Saturday night. The junior linebacker tied for second on the team with six total tackles including one sack and one 20-yard pick-6. A performance like that is deserving of UnioNCounty Football's Defensive Player of the Week. Congratulations Kurt!
