CLERMONT – The Lumpkin County Indian’s football woes continued at the Brickyard on Friday with a 55-14 loss. Lumpkin complied 336 yards of total offense with 296 of that coming on the ground.
North Hall, traditionally known as a run team, transitioned to a passing attack with quarterback David Seavey throwing for 262 yards on 8 completions on 9 attempts. On the receiving end, Noah Holman and Cutter Sanford reeled in 115 and 136 yards, respectfully. The Trojans also added 271 rushing yards.
After North Hall took their initial drive in for a score, Lumpkin was on their way to tie the contest as the ball was stripped into the end zone. The Trojans converted the turnover into a 14-0 lead on an 80 yard drive.
Lumpkin would bounce back to cut the score to 14-7 on the ensuing drive. The 80-yard, 13 play drive resulted in a 27 yard Evan Abernathy touchdown run. North Hall answered with 41 consecutive points to build a 55-7 lead.
The Indians added a late score midway through the fourth quarter running clock on a Taylor Kirk 61 yard breakaway score.
Lumpkin drops to 0-6, 0-2 and will host Greater Atlanta Christian next week. North Hall will host Union County as the winner will keep their hopes alive for a post season berth.
