The Northfield Norsemen defeated Bluffton, 34-18, on Friday night to win its opening football game of the season.
The win also was the home opener for the Norse.
Northfield will travel to Peru on Friday for its next contest.
While Peru has moved into the Three Rivers Conference, Friday’s game will be a non-conference matchup.
The Norse open the TRC season on Sept. 4 hosting Metropolitan School District rival Southwood.
Kickoff for the Peru game is 7 p.m.
