Heat to take on league’s defending champion


The Carolina Heat, an Alamance County-based semi-professional football team will try to knock off a giant in the Mason-Dixon League.
The Heat’s second-round playoff assignment is a road game against the West Depford (N.J.) Broncos, the league’s defending champion. The Broncos are undefeated the past two years, Heat coach Earl Rose said.
“They don’t want to play us,” Rose said, saying the Heat has changed some of its formations since earlier in the season.
The fifth-seed Heat (7-3-1) advanced with a 16-3 victory Saturday night against the fourth-seeded Fayetteville Cardinals at Fayetteville’s Reed Ross Field. It was Fayetteville’s first home loss of the season.
The Heat scored on Willie Harris’ 28-yard touchdown run and Demetri Morrison’s 20-yard reception from Bryan Pallone. Kevin Muldrow kicked a 38-yard field goal.
Pallone completed 10 of 23 passes for 124 yards. Muldrow also caught five passes for 58 yards.
Defensively, Tim Rissel made 13 tackles, including three sacks, and Antonio Stevenson had 12 tackles with 3˝ sacks. Eric Dalton added six tackles and an interception.
