Ever heard the old saying ”what goes around comes around”. For years the Tippecanoe Valley football team issued some beat downs on their home field against Wabash County teams. 
 
Last Friday night the Northfield Norseman repaid the debt.
 
Northfield score first and often Friday as they built their lead to 52-0 in a 59-7 old fashion romp over the Vikings.
