The Norway running backs found a lot of room to run.

Norway goes up for the ball.

Once again Norway had seven runners tally up a total of 480 yards. Then they had 53 passing yards added on just to show that they can go through the air if they want to. The defense again came up big to keep Manistique down to 13 points. Justin Bal added on a safety by sacking Manistique’s quarterback in the endzone in the fourth quarter to help pad the score. Norway is now ranked seventh in their division and they will face a very good Ishpeming team next which should be a good test for them. Ishpeming has a very good football team and playing on their home turf should make for a very competitive game. After that, it doesn’t get any easier, Negaunee will come to Norway on September 30, bringing another good team and another good challenge for the boys from Norway for their homecoming game.

Norway had no trouble putting on a show for the parents on Friday, September 9, easily defeating the Gogebic Miners 49-20. Not that it was easy, but you could tell from the sound of the pads hitting each other and the occasional helmet that came of the players that everyone came to play. For the most part Norway’s running game made rhe difference. When you have seven different runners combine for 369 yards, you can be assured of a win most of the time. Unfortunately for the miners, the Knights also racked up 73 passing yards and the defense played solid as well leaving Gogebic scoreless in the first half. On Friday, September 16, The Knights traveled to Manistique where it was almost a carbon copy of the Gogebic game. Norway easily won by a margin of 50-13.

The game began quite lopsided when the scoreboard showed the Jets in control, 14-0, as the game barely got started.
