The Northfield football team grabbed a quick lead and led 7-6 at the half over Whitko Friday before a second half rally by the Wildcats gave Whitko a 27-7 win over the Norse.
The Norse grabbed a 7-0 lead in the first quarter on a Carter Frieden 1 yard run to lead 7-0 and held Whitko scoreless in the first quarter. In a game that was a stale mate for nearly two quarters, the Wildcats scored with 59 seconds left in the first half and with the extra point failing the Norse led 7-6 at the half.
With the Norse offense puttering in the second half, Whitko would score twice in the third quarter and once in the fourth to defeat the Norse 27-7.
Carter Frieden was 6 of 13 for 85yds.
Josh Bickel rushed 16 times for 55yds and was the only Norsemen to have positive rushing yardage. Frieden had one rushing TD.
Jarred Short, Dylin Brown, Bryce Kendall and Ryan Driscoll each had one catch.
