North (1-8, 1-5) recovered an onsides kick to start the game, then quarterback Kasey Caulder found Antonio Williams for a 45-yard screen pass for a touchdown.

Forest Hills got two rushing touchdowns from running back C.J. Carelock, along with a rushing score from quarterback Jared Lee, to take a 21-7 lead midway through the second.

The Comets kept a a drive alive late in the first half with a fake punt run by Antonio Williams, but the Jacket defense forced a fumble two plays later on a completed North pass and returned it for the score.

Forest Hills held North to one first down and 39 total yards of offense in the second half while scoring two more touchdowns and a 37-yard field goal from Alan Tinoco.

North Stanly travels to West Stanly (0-10, 0-6) Friday.

    Cracking the motor, hearing the roar, tearing down the front stretch at 200 mph with numerous other cars doing the same. The rush, excitement and adrenaline pumping all while maintaining focus and poise as you power the aggressive vehicle around the track.
