Fox Chapel silenced the crowd at Martorelli Stadium early Friday evening before North Hills stormed back to claim a 31-7 victory over the Foxes.

FC's Brandon Mitchell ran 80 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter to give the Foxes the lead.

The Indians then used a punishing ground game to take over. North Hills led 17-7 at the half.

Mitchell would end up with 127 yards on 18 carries while North Hills had a pair of runners go over the century mark.

The Foxes (1-5, 1-4) will attempt to get back on the winning track on Friday when they host Baldwin.

The Highlanders are struggling with a 1-5 record and they lost to Woodland Hills, 35-7, last week.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
