Friday’s Roundup

No. 3 Hough 73, Robinson 0: Hough (6-0, 2-0 MECKA 8) warmed up for next week’s showdown with top-ranked Mallard Creek with an easy win. The Huskies smashed the single-game school record for points.

Rocky River 67, Garinger 0: Rocky River won its sixth straight game to improve to 6-1 overall and 2-0 in the Southwestern 4A. The average margin of victory in the win streak is nearly 25 points.

Weddington 28, Country Day 3: Country Day fell to 4-2 after a tough loss in Union County. The Bucs were trying to duplicate the win they had a few weeks ago at 4A public school power Durham Hillside. Weddington (5-1) won is third straight game, all by double-digits since a 7-0 loss at A.L. Brown. Weddington faces Southern Carolina conference rival Anson Senior next week.

North Mecklenburg 23, West Charlotte 22: North Meck (3-3, 1-1 MECKA 8) was up 23-0 and cruising. West Charlotte scored and then scored again after a Vikings fumble. Down 23-14, West Charlotte scored off another Vikings turnover and recovered the onside kick with 40 seconds left. West Charlotte (0-6, 0-2) couldn’t do anything else and North Meck held on. The teams have played some wild games in the past. Five years ago, North Meck led by 30 at halftime and lost 42-33.

Providence Day 43, SouthLake Christian 33: Providence Day (5-2) -- the 2012 N.C. Independent Schools Division I runner-up -- pulled the upset in Huntersville, ending SouthLake’s unbeaten season.
