Crisp County runs past North Hall

By AccessWDUN Staff

CORDELE — Crisp County beat North Hall at its own game Friday night in the second round of the Class 3A playoffs.

The Cougars churned out 238 yards rushing (nearly 9.0 yards a carry) and got a huge defensive touchdown en route to a stunning 41-3 win win over the Trojans.

North Hall (8-4) came in averaging well over 200 yards a game on the ground. The Trojans needed 45 carries to get 160 yards (3.5 yards a carry) as they could never get untracked against a Crisp County defense that came in allowing just 11.3 points a game, and just 13 points over its last four games (3.3 ppg).

Crisp County (9-2) wasted little time jumping out to a 7-0 early in the first quarter on a 20-yard AJ Lofton touchdown run. Marquise Palmer then capped a dominant first quarter for th Cougars with an 18-yard TD run.

And 18-second stretch turned the game around. Crisp County extended its lead to 21-0 on an 18-yard TD run from Marquise Palmer.
Palmer would add another scoring run and also caught a TD pass with 7:49 left in the half.

But Sirad Bryant scooped up a blocked punt and rambled 20 yards to make it 27-0 midway through the second quarter. Lofton and Palmer connected on a 54-yard TD pass to open the third quarter.
