North Hall runs over Johnson, 63-6
OAKWOOD -- North Hall spread the wealth on Friday -- in impressive fashion.
Fourteen different Trojans took turns carrying the ball, as North Hall piled up 355 yards rushing on 42 carries in a 63-6 defeat of Johnson.
Andrew Smith led the way for North Hall (2-0), rushing 10 times for 97 yards and two touchdowns, while Zac Little added 93 yards and two TDs on seven carries. It was just part of a dominating performance that saw the Trojans average 8.4 yards per carry.
North Hall pounced early, scoring on an 11-yard touchdown run from Little just 3:17 into the contest, but Johnson battled throughout the first half to stay within 22-0. Turnovers also hurt the Trojans before the interval, with two drives halted by giveaways.
North Hall more than made up for that in the third quarter, however, exploding for 27 points just after the half.
Seven different players scored touchdowns for the Trojans in the win, including Brannon Dyer, Isaac Seid, Austin Perry and Bobby Mendenhall, who each ran their way to the end zone. Meanwhile, Smith hooked up with Dalton Lavender on a 50-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter.
Johnson (1-2) put up its sole touchdown in the third quarter, as Kavin Hopkins found Jamison Owen on an 80-yard scoring strike.
Jesse Griggs also led the Knights in rushing with 75 yards on 19 carries.
Johnson will look to bounce back next week at North Murray.
North Hall, meanwhile, will travel to face defending Class AA champ Jefferson next Friday.
