North withstood a last-second scare from South to win a 17-12 thriller in Raider Valley on Friday night. The win puts North (7-3, 4-3 in Region 6-AAAAAA) in the playoffs for the first time since 2010, while the loss drops South (7-3, 4-3) from third to fifth place in the region and out of the postseason. "It was just an exciting high school football game," said North head coach Jason Galt.
