2012 North-South Football Game Goes Down To The Wire In Charleston

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON -

The North-South All-Star Footbal game from Laidley Field in Charleston showcased plenty of local talent.

Former WVU Coach Don Nehlan and Marshall coach Bob Pruett presented the ceremonial coin to be flipped.

The North won the toss, but immediately went three and out.

Mid-way through the 1st the North went up 7-0. But the South marched all the way into the red zone. Lincoln County's Zack Whitten barreled his way into the end zone for a 3 yard score. South added a two point conversion and took the lead for the first time in the game 8-7.

On the very next drive the North would answer. Roane County's Dylan Cottrell gave the North the lead on a nine yard touchdown run. South took the commanding 14-8 lead.

North took a 17-14 lead into the half.

The South led a drive down the field to begin the third quarter. Riverview's Jacob Muncy unleashed a bomb down the sideline. Huntington high's Toquan Hayes hauled it down for a 40 yard catch inside the 15 yard line.

After a pair of penalties that bumped the South back to the 30, Logan's David Toney found a hole and busted a huge run virtually untouched into the end zone. South regained the lead 20-17.

Later in the game the South still held firm on its lead. Cabell Midland's Cody Carter made the play of the game while making a mess of the North defense. Carter followed his blockers and scored on a game-breaking run into the end zone.

The South regained the momentum with a 28-17 lead at that point. The North would add a few late scores, but the South came out on top, knocking off the North 36-28 in overtime.
