Welcome back to the Sweet 16 football poll Central Cabarrus and East Lincoln.

East Lincoln (6-4) found out it had to forfeit its first three games due to an ineligible player prior to last week’s 68-7 win over West Caldwell. The Mustangs fell out of the Sweet 16, despite the dominant win, but are back in this week after a 42-0 win over previously unbeaten Maiden. Coming into that game, Maiden was averaging nearly 40 points per game.

Central Cabarrus has been out of the poll since losing 63-50 to unbeaten No. 10 Concord on Oct. 5. Since then, the Vikings have won four straight games – all in dominant fashion – and are back in the poll.

Mooresville is the other new team in this week. The Blue Devils lost to Hough 45-14 way back on Aug. 30. Since then, coach Hal Capps’ team has won eight straight and only allowed 85 points in six conference games.
