East-Guilford Thursday matchup key in Division B football

ROCKFORD – The Guilford Vikings and East E-Rabs, who share Swanson Stadium, play Thursday night in a game that will be key in the NIC-10’s B.

The Vikings beat Jefferson last Friday night to improve to 2-0 on the season, while East rebounded from an opening week loss to Boylan to crush Belvidere, 50-0, while rushing for 477 yards.

Because of the coronavirus, the NIC-10 has been split into two divisions with the winners of each playing each other in week six for the conference championship.

Guilford is 2-0 in Division B with Freeport and East at 1-1.

If you love old-fashioned, grind-it-out football, Thursday night will be the game for you. East and Guilford, combined, have thrown just eight passes in the first two weeks. The teams feature the conference’s No. 1 and No. 3 rushers through the first two weeks. CJ Berry has 259 yards for East on 24 carries and Javarrie Reynolds has 214 yards for Guilford on 41 carries.
