For the first time in school history the Northfield football team started the season 6-0, defeating Rochester for the first time in 20 years and just the third time ever 35-12 Friday night.
 

The fireworks started right off the bat when Rochester went 73 yards on the first play from scrimmage to grab a 6-0 lead. 

The Norse would respond though. On second and 11, quarterback Drake Richter pitched to Jared Short who then found Dylan Brown wide open for a 61 yard score to give Northfield a 7-6 lead just a minute and 9 seconds in to the game. Rochester would come right back, running 13 plays and taking up five minutes for their second score to take the lead back 12-7 which is where the first quarter ended.
