"It was about to go into halftime and we needed a quick score and we was only on like the 5 yard line," said Torrence, "They called the play for me. I just made it work."
"Our defense played a lot of bend but don't break tonight, especially down near the goal line," added Mooresville Head Coach Thad Wells. "You know we just keep on pushing them and trying to get them to just fight and get better and better. You know they had a pretty good night tonight."
