Durham, N.C. — Southern Durham won the battle of the Bull City Friday night, using fourth-quarter heroics from quarterback Kendall Hinton and wide receiver Maurice Trowell to down Northern Durham, 27-23.
After a back-and-forth first half, Northern Durham tied the score at 20-20 in the fourth quarter when quarterback Brandon Brown hit Kourtney Farrow in the corner of the end zone.
Minutes later, the Knights took a 23-20 lead when Ryan Arundale nailed a field goal.
Southern answered with less than 30 seconds to play, as Hinton found Trowell up the left sideline to push the Spartans ahead for good.
Northern Durham Knights (6-3, 4-1 PAC 6) will host Hillside and Southern Durham Spartans (6-4, 5-1 PAC 6) has a bye.
