Weddington crushes Mount Tabor to advance to 3AA State Championship Game

By Tim Winters, 12/08/18, 11:00AM EST


Weddington crushed Mount Tabor last night 45-12 to win the 3AA Western Regional. 

The Warriors will now play in their third state championship game in five years when they take on Southeast Guilford in Chapel Hill on either Friday night or Saturday morning.

Senior running back Wayne Dixie led the Weddington offensive attack with three rushing touchdowns including one for 42 yards. 

The Weddington defense continues to impress in the postseason.  The Warriors entered the playoffs yielding 13.9 points to their opponents during the regular season. In four playoff games, they have dropped that number to an even eight points. 

After the game, I caught up with players, Wayne Dixie, Eamon Murphy, Alec Mock, and Coach Andy Capone to discuss their regional win and the championship game that lies ahead.
