The North squad held on to beat the South team by a score of 30-22 in the North Fulton Forsyth Touchdown Club's fourth annual Chamber Bowl All-Star game.
Senior All-Stars from high schools all over the North Fulton and Forsyth County area were divided into a North and South squad and competed in a hard fought game that was not decided until the final seconds of the game.
After a rough couple of outings in the last two years, the North squad made a statement in the first half by taking a 24-7 lead into the locker room. In the middle of the third quarter, the lead had grown to 30-7, but the South squad did not go away quietly.
Chattahoochee's Terry Crowder got his South All-Stars to refocus as they made a big comeback to make it a one score game at 30-22. The South's defense bowed up and got the ball back into the hands of their offense with 19.5 seconds remaining in the game.
After an incompletion stopped the clock, the South team heaved one more final prayer as the time expired. The receiver caught the ball but was stopped immediately after the catch.
Lambert High School's Sid Maxwell, head coach of the North squad, enacted a little revenge after watching the South win 49-0 in the 2011 All-Star game. He, his players, and his fellow coaches were able to celebrate at mid-field with the Chamber Bowl trophy.
The coaches and media selected Denny Victor of Johns Creek Gladiators as the Defensive Player of the Game and Mike Randle of North Georgia Falcons as the Offensive Player of the Game as they played an excellent game against some of the stiffest competition in the area.
