On seven carries, Rochester finished the game with 117 yards for North Hall. 

To start the scoring, North Hall senior quarterback Bradford Puryear threw the first of two touchdowns, a 53-yard play to tight end Jeremiah Telander.

Senior Luke Brown was also good on a 45-yard field goal in the first quarter for the Trojans. 

Ethan Little had a 50-yard scoring run in the third period for North Hall. 

Up next, North Hall hosts Gilmer on Oct. 15 in Gainesville.
