LIGHTING IT UP: Hillside, Currie-Elliott torch Northern

Freshman Jamal Currie-Elliott looked like NFL star Adrian Peterson Friday, scoring three first-half touchdowns to lead Hillside to a 55-21 win over Northern and spoiling the Knights’ homecoming festivities at Durham County Memorial Stadium.

The win lifts Hillside (5-4, 3-0 PAC-6) into sole possession of first place in the PAC-6 4-A and in the driver’s seat for a coveted first-round playoff home date.

Northern (2-7, 2-1 PAC-6) slips into a tie for second place in the league standings, still in prime position to grab one of the league’s three guaranteed playoff slots despite an 0-6 record in non-conference play.
