Boys Middle School Football · JR. High FB Splits With Whitko, 8th Grade Captures RRC North Crown


Northfield hosted Whitko Tuesday evening for a pair of Junior High football games. The Wildcats scored early in the 7th grade game and held on to win 6-0. The game ended with Whitko stopping Northfield’s Jayden Goshert on the “one – inch” line as time expired. The 8th grade game was a different story. Alex Haupert would score two rushing touchdowns early, and with help from Jarret Shafer and Clayton Tomlinson, would finish off a hook and lateral for his third score of the first half. Blayne Powell would add two scores in the second half as Northfield pulled away 38-0. Michael Fisher and Grant Dale each caught a 2 pt conversation from Shafer, Haupert also caught a 2 pointer from Tomlinson, and Dakota France ran for a duece to complete the scoring. Northfield will host Wabash next Tuesday at 5:30 pm to wrap up the season
