North Stokes senior quarterback Garrett Wood went 25-for-39, passing for 346 yards and five touchdowns as the Vikings annihilated Patrick County, 62-27, in Stuart, Va., on Friday night.
The Vikings’ offense tallied nearly 600 yards of total offense, most of it coming through the air. North Stokes All-State wide receiver Matthew Hopkins had three touchdown catches, while teammate Dustin Smith had two touchdown grabs on the night. North Stokes runningbacks Dillon Rogers and T.J. Sonafrank combined for four touchdowns as the Vikings improved to 2-0 on the season. In two games, Wood has thrown for more than 750 yards with 10 touchdowns and only one interception.
Dillon Rogers led the Vikings’ ground attack, carrying the ball eight times and rushing for 101 yards and two touchdowns. T.J. Sonafrank rushed for 48 yards and two touchdowns, and Matthew Hopkins had 11 receptions for 142 yards.
“We played extremely well offensively,” North Stokes head coach Jason Lippard said. “Garrett Wood is playing exceptionally well right now and I really hope he continues to take what defenses give us. Defensively, we are getting better each week and hopefully we can continue to develop. Garrett has thrown for over 750 yards in the first two games with 10 touchdowns. Our receivers are playing really well too. If we can continue to be efficient on offense then I feel like we will be very competitive.”
North Stokes (2-0) plays its home opener against North Iredell on Aug. 31.
