IN A NUTSHELL: Maleek Williams ran like he was mad at the ground Friday night, rushing 25 times for 258 yards and three touchdowns in in a 34-12 win over South Fort Myers.

DID YOU SEE THAT: Moments after Lavell Cudjo made a mistake which led to a South Fort Myers touchdown, he responded in a big way, coming away with an interception on Charlotte’s next defensive drive.

THE GAME WAS OVER WHEN: Savorion Warren put the icing on the cake when he rushed for a 29-yard touchdown with a minute and a half remaining in the game to officially put the Wolfpack away.

UNSUNG HERO: Charlotte kicker Kenny Scribner made all four extra points, plus a pair of field goals. The sophomore had a long of 49 yards.

FIRST LOOK: In his first start at quarterback in the post-Brennan Simms era, Dee Hicks completed 3-of-13 passes for 43 yards and rushed five times for 38 yards.
