Blake Mathews was feeling “picky” Monday night in Marion.
Mathews had not one, but two pick-six interceptions to go along with 111 receiving yards and two more touchdowns in a 32-21 win at McDowell.
Chase Parker passed for 180 yards and two touchdowns while Colby Maltry added 50 rushing yards and a touchdown as the Black Hawks (3-4, 2-0) remained unbeaten in the Mountain Athletic Conference.
Mathews’ pair of interception returns for touchdowns covered 37 and 89 yards. His scoring catches were for 10 and 70 yards, with the longer of the two allowing North Buncombe to increase its lead to 25-0 at the 9:16 mark of the third quarter.
Titans quarterback Casey Ray threw for a game-high 215 yards with touchdowns to Ethan McMahan (35 yards) and James Young (7). With the loss, McDowell falls to 3-4 overall and 0-2 in the MAC.
