Ishpeming Hematites VS Norway Knights September 1st

Norway, MichiganSeptember 1st, 2017– After winning their first game of the season, the Hematites traveled to Norway to take on the Norway Knights. With both teams winning their first game, it was difficult to tell who would come out on top. Unfortunately, some accidents took a few of the players off the field for Ishpeming. Norway wound up taking the win with a score of 22-35.

The Hematites started the game off on offense and didn’t have much luck. After a forty yard punt, Norway received the ball and started pushing their offense hard. Josh Plante passed the ball straight to Connor Ortman for the first touchdown of the game for the Knights. Gavin Sundberg had some great defensive moves for the Hematites, though, in the first quarter as he saved a touch down and brought down Micah Wilson of the Knights. The Knights scored another touchdown just before the end of the first quarter and made the extra point. 14-0 was the score at the end of one. Matt Trawick made the first and
