NUC North/South Senior All-Star Game

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina- The grand finale of the All-American Week was the NUC Senior North South Game. The North built an early 16-0 lead in the first quarter only to watch the opportunistic South team cause eight turnovers and storm back for a 35 to 22 victory. More than one person on the North squad noted that the team speed of the South was like none they had ever seen.

The North squad got on the board first when linebacker Domonick Brown scooped up a fumble and returned it 45 yards for a score. After a successful two-point try the North led 8 to 0. The South would put the ball on the turf again deep in their own zone. But the North would come away empty handed as defensive tackle Kendall Williams of Bartlett Yancey, NC would block a 23-yard field goal attempt.

Monmouth Regional, NJ signal caller Jeff Farah would hit receiver Donquale Williams for a 25 yard gain. Moments later Farrah would hit Jeremiah Ortiz on a 5-yard touchdown pass for a score. Farrah then hooked up with Mr. Do-it-all DJ Spurling on the two-point conversion giving the North squad a commanding 16 to 0 lead.

Early in the second quarter Plano Sr. High School quarterback Richard Lagow would then lead the North on a 57 yards drive set up by two long passes to Ohio native Garry Brown. Lagow would call his number inside the one yard line giving the South its first points of the game.

James Jackson of Lake Region, FL began the South defensive onslaught with a 44-yard interception thwarting a North Drive with 4:56 left in the second stanza. On their next possession the North would put the ball on the ground as the South's Trent Bowers of Plano Sr., TX corralled the live pigskin. Tyler Kean of Myrtle Beach then hit a streaking Brown for a 20 yard touchdown making the score 16 to 14 North.

With only 55 seconds left in the half the North would get greedy trying to get more points before intermission. The South made them pay as Stephan Gehringer caused the scrambling quarterback to fumble. Teammate Chris Pack of Manning, SC would then pick of the loose ball and score with 34 seconds left giving the South its first lead of the game 21 to 16.

The third quarter was a defensive stalemate as neither offense could mount a serious drive. The highlight of the quarter was an interception by Tyrone Thompson of Eastern HS, NJ that was stripped away by Brown giving the South a new set of downs.

The roaming marauder Alex Duncan of Chapel Hill,, NC would pick off an errant North pass and return it to the 12-yard line. Three plays later Peach State standout Drew Gibson would pound it in from six yards out making the score 28 to 16.

The men from up North would not quit as South Lake Christian, NC quarterback found a streaking Williams for a 26-yard score with 5:04 left in the game. Less than one minute later linebacker Trey Givens would pick of a South pass and take to the 20-yard line with the score 28 to 22 bringing everyone in the house to their feet.

Gehringer would then take part in the most definitive play of the game. Sniffing out a short screen he leaped into the air around the 10-yard line and picked it off with one hand. During his return he pitched the ball to Kailen Chavis who put the stamp on a 90-yard interception return for score.
