A large and very appreciative crowd celebrated the Northumberland Indians final home football game for the next five weeks in a 51-0 one sided win over a weak Mathews team here this past Friday night. It was one of those “everything went right” nights as the Indians used their speed and strength to score in almost every fashion possible. Jerquist Morris got things started when he returned the opening kick off 80 yards untouched.
Harry Lee missed on the first of the his six PATs attempts. Dionte Kelly kept the action going with a twenty-five yards scamper on the Indians next possession. Keon Redmond added the two-point conversion on a run. Next time the Indians got the ball they marched down to inside the Mathews five-yard line where Redmond banged it over from a yard out. Lee’s PAT kick was good and he was still in the first twelve minutes of play. With just seconds left in the first quarter, Collin Saunders raced into the Mathews secondarv and the race was on. Or should it have been over with Saunders scoring from forty yards out. Lee’s extra point attempt was good and after the buzzer sounded, the Northumberland Indians had a 28-0 lead.
