When a field goal extended North Cobb’s lead to 45-34, Fields’ 3-yard touchdown run and a two-point conversion pass to Dawson Brown trimmed the margin to 45-42.
He provided all of the Hoyas’ first-quarter points with two touchdown runs, the first a 15-yarder and the second a 2-yard plunge over the top to put Harrison up 13-7.
