(VIDEO) Air North Hall grounds Lumpkin County in 55-14 win

By Morgan Lee Sports Editor

GAINESVILLE — North Hall football coach David Bishop could not remember a game in his almost two decades with the Trojans quite like Friday's.

The Trojans -- known for their running attack -- posted two receivers with over 100 yards through the air and not a single running back with over 100 yards on the ground and rolled to a 55-14 win over Lumpkin County in Gainesville.

"It was just a great team effort all around," said Bishop, whose Trojans (2-5) bounced back from 30-7 loss to Dawson County to move to 2-1 in Region 7-AAA. "Defensively we made some great adjustments after the first quarter, and then we had seen some things on film we thought we could attack offensively."

Certainly North Hall quarterback David Seavey made the most of the opportunities, completing 8 of 9 passes for 262 yards -- four for 115 yards to Noah Holman and three for 136 to Cutter Sanford -- though neither scored through the air.

"(Seavey) really executed and is coming along; he was throwing perfect passes for our receivers tonight," Bishop said.

Jack Brown paced North Hall on the ground with 12 rushes for 79 yards and two scores, while Sanford added 24 yards and a TD on six carries as the Trojans rushed for 271 yards as a team. Drew Faulkner has two touchdown runs and 31 yards on five carries, while Daniel Jackson, Seavey and Clark Howell also had scoring plunges.

Lumpkin County put up 336 total yards -- 296 of that rushing -- but managed touchdowns in just the second and fourth quarters.

North Hall will play host to Union County in a huge region showdown next week.

Lumpkin County (0-6, 0-2) faces Greater Atlanta Christian in Dahlonega next week.
