No. 12 Mill Creek (Ga.) pulls away to top North Gwinnett

By

No. 12 Mill Creek (Hoschton, Ga.) exploded out of the blocks in the second half with three quick touchdowns on its way to a 44-17 win over North Gwinnett (Suwanee, Ga.)

The Hawks (6-0) entered the game having allowed just three points in the first half all season. But an 80-yard touchdown pass from Cade Fortin to Ricky Reed cut Mill Creek’s lead to 14-10 late in the first half.

The Hawks responded in the best way possible, marching down the field with Cameron Turley hitting Edmond Graham for a 29-yard TD strike to push the lead to 20-10 at the half.

The third quarter was all Mill Creek, which scored touchdowns on its first three possessions.

Senior running back Joe Thomas, who returned to action after missing a pair of games with nagging injuries, Cole Wroble (two TDs) and Ace Williams scored for the Hawks.

Mill Creek next plays Discovery (Lawrenceville, Ga.) on Oct. 7.
