MIDDLEBURY–An outpouring of offense in the second half propelled the South over the North 35-8 in the 11th Annual North-South All-Star Football Game.

"It was a great experience. These games are what they are; an exhibition to get the kids out there for scouts to see. But most importantly it is about having fun and the kids did."
