JOHNSTON COUNTY, N.C. (WTVD) -- It's Friday and that means a big night of high school football. The Mountain Dew High School Huddle Game of the Week is in Johnston County.

The undefeated Cleveland Rams welcomed South Garner on Friday night as conference play began.

It was Cleveland's first home game in nearly a month and when the dust settled, the Rams were still unbeaten with a 34-13 win against the Titans.

The Titans came out strong with an early touchdown, but with the game tied at 7, the Rams' Jackson Byrd tossed two touchdown passes before the end of the first half to put his team in control.

Byrd ran for another score in the second half as the Rams pulled away.

"It was great. We prepared all week for this," Byrd said. "It was hard for us at the beginning but we grew and got the 'W.'"

The Rams improve to 5-0 while the Titans fall to 3-2.
