HIGH POINT — North Surry faced a state championship contender and lost 55-3 on the road.

“They were the best team I’ve seen on film, and they were even better in person,” Coach Danny Lyons said of Andrews.

“They’ve got a great football team,” he said. “If they don’t win the state title, I don’t know who will.”

“They scored often and fast,” he said. Andrews posted four touchdowns in the first quarter and three more in the second quarter for a 49-0 halftime score.

After a scoreless third, the home team outscored North 6-3 in the fourth.

Lyons said he didn’t want to use injuries as an excuse, but the Greyhounds were missing nine starters against a team ranked third in the state for 2A, according to MaxPreps.

There weren’t many positives, Lyons said, but he was proud that his team was able to make four drives all the way down inside the home team’s 30-yard line.

The Hounds only got one field goal out of those drives, but if they can move the ball like that against Andrews, then they should have some confidence back home playing in their own league, he said.

Dakota Goss led the offense with 17 carries for 45 yards. Fullback George Rumplasch had 12 carries for 38 yards, and Colton Acord had seven carries for 22 yards.

Jacob Patten was 4-12 for 33 yards and one interception.

The Hounds have a bye week, then travel to West Stokes on Oct. 11.
