The Northrop Bruins couldn’t keep up with the Carroll Charger’s high scoring offense last night, as they fell 36-62.

The first quarter featured a back-and-forth battle for the lead. The Chargers struck first with a touchdown rush by Nic Novotny. Casey Lawrence then found the end zone for Northrop. Carroll soon answered with a scoring pass from Jack Miguel to Jonathan Becker, making the score 14-7 after one quarter of play.

After two Northrop field goals, Carroll responded with two touchdown runs by Ian Miller. The Chargers had all the momentum going into halftime until Keishon Edwards returned a kickoff to the house just before time expired. The Bruins trailed 19-28 at the half.

There was no shortage of excitement in the third quarter. A Carroll pick-six and another touchdown run by Novotny put the Chargers in control. Northrop came back with a second Lawrence score and another field goal. Carroll would score once more in the third to go ahead 48-36.

The fourth quarter was owned by the Chargers, as Miguel threw for two more touchdowns and their defense held Northrop scoreless. Carroll went out on top 62-36.

Carroll was led by Miguel with three touchdown passes. Miller and Novotny also added two rushing scores each. Lawrence led the Bruins with two touchdowns.

Northrop’s next game is Friday, September 16 at Concordia.
