Great analysis nole , i agree. The most overwhelming thing to me today was the number of players tarboro dressed out. Wore the line down for the bears, 2 coming up gimpy in 4th hurt on defense. Tarboro d was down right nasty !!! Bears will be back next year , loaded at skill positions .

Get your story right before u post. 3rd round. And y'all were giving me a hard time because I said it wouldn't be close. MA qb throws up a ball in double coverage and dude comes down with it. Good play on reciever, not good throw. And u seem to have to bring WM in to it but that's not why y'all are eating crow, so why not stick to the topic. Oh that's right it's because I was right. Y'all are a special group.
Sorry I was not allowing for Tarboro not having to play first round. My bad I was looking at Tarboro's schedule and this is WM's schedule ... I do admit when I am wrong.

Albemarle went to sleep and west can't get there
Your right, The current Albemarle can’t hold a Candle to you guys...but we got 5 1AA state ships. And I don’t know why you keep mentioning WM, I don’t represent them lol

Crow hmph, 32 -7 -- lets see -- two scores given up on special teams, two at end of game. Tarboro is as good as advertised, congrats vikes and vikes fans. Esod , mt airy will own your team and coach again next year, i wouldnt call you out , but not cool when you pull against the conference . Wm --- you are still a joke, lmao at the thought of your post . Ma returns all skill players and alot more , expect the bears back. Will be real good again, great defensive game both teams.
My airy will not own Tarboro give it a rest! Holder and Greene will be gone sorry your dreaming Tarboro is reloading like you wouldn’t believe

My. Airy is a solid team. Tarboro’s defense was a beast. 15-0. State Champions!
My 1st post in a while. Watched the game. 2 best 1AA teams played for title tonight! The way it should be. Mt Airys def. front was better than I thought!!! Tarboro’s depth, overall size and team overall speed made the difference. When fans use spec. Teams and turnovers as excuses... part of the game. Congrats to the best 1AA team... Tarboro and the 2nd best. Team the Bears!!

Nobody said Mt Airy would own Tarboro , holder is gone , rest of skill players return. Possible matchup again next year. Whos my airy? Lol. Game was closer than final score - 14 pts scored last 5 minute of game and 2 of those came off of special team botchs . Say what you want , i seen a heck of a defensive ball game till last 5 minutes, no excuses , Tarboro was the better team tonight. But it wasnt the Tarboro t , it was that defense , thats the game i saw

Anybody who watched that game knows it was never close. Tarboro was in complete control the whole time.

And since you’re downgrading the touchdowns Tarboro scored, I’ll just point out that the only TD y’all scored was a desperation pass that #21 made a great play on. Other than that, MA didn’t stiff the end zone.

And for the record, The Tarboro T is meant to wear defenses down throughout the course of a game, and that’s exactly what it did tonight.

Objectively, heres the story:

Mt Airy played Tarboro closer than anyone all year.

Special team, fumbles, etc., are part of determining how good you are. Not fumbling is a skill. Special teams are a huge part of the game.

Mt Airy should be very proud.

Tarboro was still dominant. I think they actually win bigger most of the time. As much credit as their offense gets, their defense is unreal.

A truly special team.

Albemarle is TA McClendon's senior year- and i know they lost a game- in my opinion win >50% of the time against any 1A team ive ever seen. And their defense was subpar compared to their offense. But stopping them was impossble Just my opinion.

1. MA was never in the game...
2. Albemarle Bulldogs 2001 team or even 2002 would’ve mopped 2005 Thomasville, T-Ville got y’all good that year also. I’m telling you, you mountain guys could have not played with us back then. As good as Taboro is, that’s what your looking at back then, but we executed better. Taboro should’ve dropped at least 50 on MA...

Congrats to Taboro from an Albemarle fan. You guys shut a lot for people up and that makes me happy. I hope you guys continue to represent the East until hopefully one day we meet when Albemarle gets back on their feet.
Wow sway! You never disappoint! 2005 AND 2006 Thomasville would have whacked any team the blue dogs have ever fielded. Those teams were loaded! They had no weaknesses. The 2006 Thomasville team returned virtually everyone from the 2005 team, and they opened the season against defending 2a champ Clinton (who also returned nearly everyone), and won 36-0. The 05 and 06 Thomasville teams didn’t lose a single game.

Murphy leads Albemarle 3-1, but if you want to bring your early 2000s team into the conversation, then I get to bring Murphy’s 86, 87, 91, and 92 teams to the conversation also. I would put my money on any of those Murphy teams against any Albemarle team you offer up!

As for the MA Tarboro game, MA was never going to win, but the score was nowhere near what people such as yourself were thinking and hoping it would be. The truth is, both MA and Murphy were much better than people thought and both were much closer to Tarboro than anyone expected. Tarboro will have their hands full with both in the coming years whether you like it or not.

Lol..no excuses. Jock Rider WM2004 is an honorary Viking..West Montgomery should be proud of you. Now run along and tailgate. Tarboro is very good. So was Mt.Airy. Tarboro d was very good. They made some special plays at point blank range. From batting balls down, to interceptions within yards of the initial throw. They always seemed to be so Johnny on the spot. But for real WM2004 you seem Thirsty with a capital T. Rock with your Warriors and stop being a nut hugger!!

Murphy and MA was exactly who we thought the were.

Gdawg lol just cause I don't put on a bear t-shirt and jump on the bandwagon like you do doesn't mean I have a problem bud. I've never liked Mt Airy from my time in school till today. I don't care if they are in our conference or whatever other reason you or the other experts on here have for cuddling up to em. I don't like Duke either. I guess when my Tarheels aren't playing I should pull for them? East Surry/Mt Airy and Carolina/Duke is on the same level of rivalry in my book.
Name some names of kids moving. I know of one that probably will go somewhere. Hate to see him go but when your parent acts a fool at every game, shows up at practice and second guesses everything the coaches ever do, I guess it's time for him to go somewhere else. Maybe Coach Holder will be happy to welcome an expert former little league coach and his kid into the bear family. From what I know about Kelly he'll listen to him just about as much as Coach Diamont did. The kid is a great kid and a heck of a player but if you are not happy with where you are move on.

Go Big Red!!

My dislike for the Bear's comes from the loud mouth fans that I worked with for 20 plus years. I never liked em when I was in school either. We farmed and I probably didn't go to two or three games the whole time I was in school. Started going regularly around '97. Constant gum and chest beating about anything and everything MA related turned me totally against da bears. Don't waste ya time trying to figure me out FNL lol.

To be continued ---- esod ---- deff not a bandwagon fan , got a kid that goes to east surry , and one kid i follow on east is like a second yougin of mine. The only thing east has won titles in in recent years is wrestling and girls tennis , those were indiviual, and i had to coach my kid to one of those titles. Her name doesnt even hang from the rafters of your gym. ( what disrespect from an athletics program ) She was DOMINANT in her years there, and will go down as one of the best our area and region has ever seen. Ive coached in a state championship , and won . I got just a little experience , wink wink. Grew up in the granite city and a bear. Will have another cardinal i will be working with on the mat win a state title this year to. You cant judge fans when you are in the stands acting the exact same way ( murphy ) how embarrassing!! I never yell or say one word. I post my opinion -- talk smack here as it is fun. As an athletics program the bears set the bar year in and year out. People dont like them because winning is an expectation. Coaches are taken care of and the kids to. Theres a tradition of winning there , it stings a little when you loose. Talent is there, but from watching jv / middle school scores every year it says alot about what your coaches at the next level are doing with there kids. All i ever say is year in and year out the cardinals are the class of little league, the class of middle school and the class of jv , then fizzle out at the varsity level. Thats my opinion. Thats how it is , awful lotta talant in cardinal country to not be playing for a title. One of your kids will be at carroll county next year ( moving ) . Two more will be in the granite city for basketball ( i imagine thats why anyway ) but are ballers onthe football field as well. Again as i said RUMOR HAS IT!!!
