The 2009 high school football schedules have been posted online for Hunt, Fike, Beddingfield, among other teams.
The Warriors will open at former 3-A Eastern Carolina Conference rival Eastern Wayne on Aug. 21 and then host Fike the following week. A couple of interesting non-conference battles for Hunt are Sept. 3 at 4-A Holly Springs and Sept. 11 at home against SouthWest Edgecombe.
The Golden Demons, under new head coach Kim Brown, open at D.H. Conley on Aug. 21, visit Hunt the next week and host Beddingfield on Sept. 11. Fike's non-conference schedule is pretty much the same except for South Johnston which visits Bedgood Stadium on Oct. 2.
Both teams begin 3-A Big East Conference play on Oct. 9 with Hunt visiting Northern Nash and the Demons traveling to Southern Nash. After four years of midseason battles, Hunt and Fike will meet in their regular-season finale at Fike on Nov. 6.
The Bruins' non-conference schedule now includes former ECC rivals Southern Wayne (Aug. 28) and Hunt (Sept. 18) as well as Fike and Southern Nash. Beddingfield begins play in the 2-A Eastern Plains Conference at home against Greene Central on Sept. 25. The Bruins finish the regular season at Tarboro on Nov. 6.
