KINGSPORT — The uncanny ability of Sullivan North to make pivotal play after pivotal play was never more evident this season than during the fourth quarter of Friday night’s frigid TSSAA Class 3A football quarterfinal.
Inspired moments that put the undefeated Raiders in a position to make the definitive play. The game-winning, season-defining kind of play.
That play, however, never surfaced.
