North Stanly football opens season with non-conference win versus North Moore

The North Stanly Comets opened the 2020-21 football season Mar. 5 with a 24-15 non-conference win over North Moore.

Quarterback Luke Shaver led the Comets (1-0) with 55 passing yards throwing a touchdown pass to Cooper Hogan.
