Auburn 34, Northeast 26

Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2013, at Auburn

The Auburn High football team started a new tradition, but did so by holding on to a big part of an old one � winning games with a punishing ground game. Behind a physical offensive line and the explosive effort of junior running back Mark Wright, the Rockets came from behind to defeat visiting Northeast Regional Vocational, 34-26, in their final game of the season. Wright rushed 32 times for a single-game school record 346 yards and four touchdowns, including the game-winning 46-yard sprint up the middle with four minutes left. Wright broke his own school recortd of 297 rushing yards, set earlier this year and also Wright ended the season with a school-record 2,1111 yards rushing and 25 TDs. �Mark had a big game for us and a great season,� Auburn coach Jeff Cormier said. �He�s a humble kid and very respectful and thankful for the guys up front and what they do to get him going. We didn�t have any affiliation with (Northeast Voke) until this week, but they�re a class program from top to bottom, with tough athletic kids.�
