Northside heads to title game with win over Allatoona

Northside provided almost no suspense on offense, and did not necessarily dive deep into the playbook.

In fact, the Eagles were one-dimensional.

Willie Jordan was the one dimension. And a mammoth night did the dimension have.

Jordan set one program mark by halftime and another shortly after the break as the Eagles held off a fourth-quarter rally for a 30-21 win Friday night over Allatoona in a GHSA Class AAAAA semifinal at Mercer University Stadium.

For somebody who admitted to falling down a few times on Monday when the Eagles practiced on Mercer’s FieldTurf, Jordan sure had his balance in the biggest game of his life.

“I got a little used to it,” he said after carrying 40 times for 231 yards and three touchdowns. “I couldn’t fall down this time.”
