Ever heard the old saying ”what goes around comes around”. For years the Tippecanoe Valley football team issued some beat downs on their home field against Wabash County teams and Friday night the Northfield Norseman repaid the debt.
Northfield score first and often Friday as they built their lead to 52-0 in a 59-7 old fashion romp over the Vikings.
The Norse would strike twice in the first quarter when Jensen Freiden scored on a 12yd run with 6:56 left to make it 7-0. Just a minute and a half later Jared Short would make it 14-0, scoring on a 21yd run to lead 14-0 after one.
Just 9 seconds into the second quarter, Short would find the end zone again from 54yds out for a 21-0 lead, then score again at the 8:02 mark on a 39yd pass from Drake Richter to make it 28-0. With 21 seconds left in the half, Freiden would score for the second time, this time from 3yds out as the Norse led 35-0 at the half.
The Norse would score just once in the third quarter when Noah Shear connected on a 28yd field goal to stretch the lead to 38-0 and in the fourth the Norse would show the Vikings how a whipping felt.
With 9:49 left in the game, Drake Richter found John Schuler from 10yds out to increase the lead to 45-0 but the Norse were not done. Jared Short would find pay dirt from 25yds out to make it 52-0 with 4:51 to go before Valley got their first score at the 4:28 mark on a 61yd run. Northfield would score one more time when Layne Evans crossed the line on a 5yd run for the 59-7 final.
