ROBBINS -- The streak is over.

Princeton snapped its 21-game skid with a 13-12, non-conference victory over North Moore on Friday. The Bulldogs (1-1) had the fifth-longest losing streak statewide before handing second-year head coach Russell Williamson his first win in his second stint at the Class 1-A school.

Trailing 12-0 at halftime, Princeton pulled within 12-7 on Gerrell Bogle's 15-yard touchdown run and Colin Parker's successful PAT.

North Moore returned the kickoff, but fumbled on the next play. Junior linebacker Michael Radford scooped up the ball and rambled 12 yards to the end zone. Parker's second PAT attempt failed for 13-12 finale.

Bogle finished with 132 yards rushing on 31 carries. The Bulldogs did not complete a pass and finished with 165 yards of total offense.

North Moore, of the Class 1-A Yadkin Valley Conference, led 6-0 after one quarter. Freshman quarterback Sean Gilmore threw a 32-yard touchdown to Scott Baylor.

John Ingram pushed the Mustangs' advantage to 12-0 with a 16-yard touchdown run in the second period. Ingram grinded out 114 yards in the opening half and 161 for the game.

Princeton entertains Sampson Union next Friday.
