Norse Struggle At South Adams

The Northfield football team had to take the hour plus drive to Berne Friday to battle South Adams in the winter like conditions, falling to the Starfires 26-7.

South Adams would strike just three minutes in to the game on a 63yd run to grab a 7-0 lead, but the Norse would answer. With 1:44 on the clock Josh Bickel would find the end zone from 4yds out to tie the score at 7 after the Kyle Heiser kick. The first quarter ended 7-7.

South Adams would manage the only score of the second quarter, running it in from 3yds out to lead 13-7 at the half.

All the scoring was done by the Starfires in the second half, scoring on a 53yd run in the third and a 1yd run in the fourth as the Norse offense just couldn’t find their mojo in the 26-7 loss.

For Northfield Carter Freiden was 4 for 4 for 29yds. Freiden also rushed 9 times for 10yds. Josh Bickel led the rushing attach with 23 rushes for 104yds, 1TD. Shane Vigar added 4 for 23yds, Jarred Short 4 for 9yds. Jarred Short had 2 catches for 20yds. Shane Vigar added 1 for 5yds.

Northfield had 143yds rushing while South Adams had 244. The Norse had 172 total offensive yards while the Starfires had 257.
