Northfield hosted Peru Wednesday evening in a Jr High Football Doubleheader to kick off the 2015 season.
The Norse won the 7th grade game 22-6. Logan Cox scored a pair of touchdowns and Clayton Tomlinson added another. Tomlinson, Max Carter, and Blayne Powell each had several nice carries and quarterback Jarret Shafer did an excellent job running the offense. Powell and Dakota France led the defense and Alex Haupert was great on special teams.
In the 8th grade game, the Norsemen rolled 50-0. Graydon Craig led the charge with four touchdowns. Braden Ripplinger, JC Frank, Max Carter, and Levi Fulkerson also found the end zone as the Northfield offense benefitted from a dominant defense led by Ripplinger, Frank, and Craig.
The Norse will travel to Southwood next Tuesday.
