Blue Devils Beat Mill Creek in the End

Running back Alvin Kamara scored on three long runs as Blue Devils beat the Hawks 41-34.

Alvin Kamara scored on three long touchdown runs, the last one a 48-yarder with 4:02 left in the game that proved to be the game-winner, as Norcross stayed undefeated with a 41-34 win at Mill Creek Friday night.

Kamara, who had more than 200 yards rushing, also scored on runs of 43 and 67 yards in the first half before Mill Creek came back from a deficits of 20-0 and 27-7, tying the game at 34-34 with 5:02 left.

Kamara's game-winner came a play after the Norcross defense ripped the ball away from a Mill Creek ball-carrier at the Hawks 48-yard line. The fumble was a play after Mill Creek had intercepted a Norcross pass at the 40, with a chance to drive for the winning score.

Norcross hit big plays early in the game. Quarterback Joseph Wilber hit Jason Croom for a 67-yard TD at the 9:27 mark of the first quarter, before Kamara scored on his first two long runs for a 20-0 score. Later, Curtis Whisby scored on a 71-yard run to make the score 27-7.

Mill Creek scored the next 20 points to tie it before Wilber completed a 3-yard TD pass to Domonique Mason for a 34-27 lead. Mill Creek quarterback John Russ threw two touchdowns passes and scored on a sneak from the 1.

Norcross improved to 5-0, 2-0 in Region 7-AAAAA. Mill Creek fell to 3-2, 0-2.
