When Northern Guilford's football team is firing on all cylinders, it can be scary.
The Nighthawks scored a touchdown on the first play from scrimmage -- on defense -- and staked a 35-0 lead at the end of the first quarter en route to a 56-7 win against McMichael for homecoming.
On the first play of the game, a poor snap put the ball on the ground. Northern's Ryan Johnston led a host of ball-hawking defenders and scooped the ball up for a score 31 seconds into the game.
Johnston added two touchdowns on offense as well.
Senior tailback T.J. Logan only played for two quarters, but that was all that was needed. Logan ran the ball six times for 173 yards, caught two passes for 44 yards and even threw once for 19 yards. Logan accounted for four total touchdowns and 236 total yards.
