STILL PERFECT

SOUTHERN LOOKS HUMAN, BUT STILL SHUTS OUT NORTHERN

The Southern Spartans played with dull swords that still were sharp enough to beat the Northern Knights 28-0 in a non-conference duel on Friday.

Northern had Southern quarterback Kendall Hinton looking halfway human. The Knights’ defensive linemen were getting really good surges and got their hands on Hinton several times for sacks.

Hinton still threw for nearly 200 yards, including a pass to wide receiver Aaron Hirsch that turned into a 50-yard touchdown.

CHAMPS REIGN

LAST-MINUTE TD LIFTS SOUTHERN OVER HILLSIDE 16-13 AT NCCU

Southern junior Jordan Brown scored the go-ahead touchdown in the final minute of last year’s 3-AA state championship game.

On Friday he scored another winning touchdown in the final minute, and the stakes may have been just as high.

Brown’s 8-yard touchdown catch with 25 seconds left gave Southern a 16-13 win over 4-A Hillside at N.C. Central University’s O’Kelly-Riddick Stadium, breaking the Hornets’ four-year winning streak in the city’s biggest rivalry.

“Winning the state championship is huge,” Southern coach Darius Robinson said. “But unfortunately in order for you to get the respect in our state, in our city, in our region, we have to win a game like this. So it’s on the level of a state championship because that’s a great team over there.”

The Southern-Hillside rivalry always seems to come down to the final possession — the last seven meetings have been decided by a total of 31 points — and Friday’s meeting was no exception.
