Tarboro, N.C. — Tarboro won the battle of the Vikings Friday night when they hosted Eastern Plains rival Kinston.
In the first quarter, Kinston was driving at midfield when quarterback Vequain Joyner's pass was intercepted by Tarboro's Aaron Moore at his 23.
Tarboro turned the INT into a long drive, but stalled at third and goal at the Kinston 1. Tarboro's Travonne Marshall got the hand-off call inside for the touchdown and the 6-0 lead.
Kinston was again at midfield, the Tarboro 47, when Joyner saw his pass caught but fumbled. Tyquan Lewis dove on the ball for Tarboro. Tarboro finished that drive with a seven-yard rush from Marshall to lead 14-0.
Kinston (4-4, 1-3 Eastern Plains) travels to Greene Central next week. Tarboro (7-0, 3-0 Eastern Plains) hosts SouthWest Edgecombe.
