The highly anticipated matchup between two unbeaten teams featured Rolesville’s high-powered offense against Wake Forest’s Defense. My opinion was that the game would be tightly contested for four quarters. We were in for a surprise once the game started:
Rolesville’s defensive unit constant pressure on Wake Forest quarterback kept the offense out of rhythm. Carsten Casady and Oluwaseum Adewumi anchor the dominant defensive line. They displayed strength and quickness out of their stance to overpower the offensive linemen. Carsten Casady and Oluwaseum Adewumi’s dominant play resulted in Wake Forest offense unable to generate first downs. The linebackers and defensive backs made several physical tackles throughout the contest. Oluwaseum Adewumi often went by the offensive lineman unblocked and was difficult to contain one-on-one. The defensive unit constant pressure resulted in hurried passes, interceptions, scores, and a few forced fumbles. Rolesville’s defensive unit displayed their best performance of the season to date.
Wake Forest defensive unit was overpowered by Rolesville’s high-powered offense throughout the contest. Isaiah Pipkin Isaiah Pipkin 6'6" | LB Wake Forest | 2021 State NC , DE/OLB was a standout on the defensive unit. He is a tall, rangy player who made several tackles throughout the contest. Isiah Pipkin displayed good lateral movement and runs well in the open field. The defensive backs did a much better job of containing Rolesville wide receivers after the first quarter scoring spree. Triston Spencer, CB, made several solo tackles and an interception against Noah Rogers in man coverage. Triston Spencer displayed a lot of toughness and competitiveness against a talented wide receiver.
