ROCKY MOUNT, Va. (WDBJ7)-- Northside and Franklin County met at Cy Dillon Stadium in Rocky Mount tonight, the first meeting between the Vikings and Eagles in more than three decades.
The Frankling CO. Cheerleaders had there Pink Pom-Poms out, reminding everyone to "Think Pink" for the month of October. It was Northside thinking about a shut-out in this game as LB Jacob Elliott gets a big sack late in the 2nd quater.
The Eagles had a chance at the end of the 1st half, with a Hail-Mary pass as time expired, but it was just off the finger tips of Jamerise Holland, it was 14-0 Northside at the break.
Now to the 4th quater we go, still 14-0 NS, Tyshaun Zeigler fields the punt, makes one man miss, and scoots down the sideline for 59 yards TD return!
But the play is called back due to a block in the back foul. That's when NS defense stepped-up and Jacob Elliott records his 2nd sack of the game.
Now on fouth down the Eagles go for it, but the pass is knocked away in the endzone by Isaac Earls, NS would run out the clock and win by a score of 21 to 0.
