North Hall routs rival White County

By staff reports
CLEVELAND -- North Hall scored the final 42 points to rally for a 42-7 win over rival White County in Region 7-AAA action Friday night.

The Trojans (6-1, 4-0 in region) used their wishbone attack to perfection with five different runners gaining 55 or more yards. For the game, North Hall racked up 398 yards rushing.

White County (4-3, 2-2) scored first on a 17-yard run by Will Brock four minutes into the second quarter. But that would be it for the Warriors offense.

North Hall would yield just 194 total yards for the game.



Andrew Smith would put the Trojans on the board with a 17-yard run less than two minutes later and then a 28-yard run by T.J. Tate on North Hall's next drive gave them the lead for good with just 1:15 left in the first half.

The Trojans put the game away in the third quarter getting a 51-yard TD run from Zac Little and a 4-yard scoring run from David Epps to push the lead to 28-7.

In the fourth quarter Kevin Christmas, who led North Hall with 83 yards rushing, scored on a 9-yard run and Bradley Brown scampered in from 25 yards to seal the game.

North Hall remains tied with Buford atop the region standings and the two teams will close out the regular season in three weeks at Tom Riden Stadium. The Trojans will travel to West Hall next week and faces Banks County at home in two weeks.
