North tops South in abbreviated all-star game
The 13th Foothills Football Classic at Norwin High School was halted 8 seconds into the second half, due to repeated lightning strikes.
When the action was suspended, the North held a 13-6 advantage over the South, which committed two turnovers. The win was the second straight for the North, which took home a 20-10 victory in 2007.
Note: No MVP or awards were presented due to the shortened games. Scholarship winners will be directly notified by the TAB offices.
