Nash Central stuns defending 2A champ Tarboro

As if there weren't enough upsets over the weekend, yet another defending state champion went down Monday night, as Nash Central stunned defending 2A champion Tarboro, 38-28. The contest, which was moved from Friday due to bad weather, saw the Vikings' 23-game win streak come to an end.

With the score knotted at 20 after one quarter, Nash Central scored 18 unanswered points to take control of the game and avenge a 20-0 loss in last year's meeting.

Today I caught up with Tarboro's Todd Gurley, who scored three times in the losing effort. And while he was disappointed, Gurley said the key would be turning the defeat into a learning experience.

"It was just a lack of discipline, but we'll refocus this week and come back with a different mindset, as a unit."

Speaking of Gurley, check back Friday for the first installment of his recruit diary as he chronicles the weekly happenings leading up to his big college decision.
