DEEP RUN -- Maurice Morgan delivered 189 yards of total offense and North Lenoir picked up its first win of the season with a 34-12 decision over county rival South Lenoir.

After the Blue Demons got on the board late in the first quarter, the Hawks finally got their offense rolling. Romero Arnold broke a 74-yard scoring run to tie the game and Caleb Baird tacked on the extra point for a 7-6 lead.

Two touchdowns from Morgan, the second on a 42-yard pass from Arnold, pushed the Hawks to a 20-14 advantage to end the third quarter.

Morgan added a 79-yard scoring scamper in the fourth quarter. The N.C. State commit finished with 134 yards on the ground and 55 through the air. Arnold ran for 64 yards and passed for another 55.

North Lenoir (1-3 overall) will travel to Greene Central on Friday.
