It took Weddington only 36 offensive plays and a smothering defense to extinguish the high-scoring offense of Northwest Cabarrus winning handily, 49-7.
The Warriors scored quickly and often, and its defense capitalized on the Trojans' mistakes. Weddington's efficient play made for a short night as the running clock kicked in midway through the 3rd quarter.
Will Shipley led the Weddington offensive attack rushing for 151 yards on 11 carries for three touchdowns.
Defensively, Alec Mock led the team with ten total tackles. Mock also recorded one interception.
Weddington (14-0) will now play Watauga (13-1) on Friday at home, with the winner advancing to the 3AA state championship game in Raleigh on December 14.
