But after a couple of offensive miscues Northeastern found themselves down 9-7 to the Patriots. They responded by scoring 28 straight points to end the first half. Carson Terrell threw 2 touchdowns to Logan White and Dylan Isaacs and Noah Ammerman ran in scores. The Knights held Union County scoreless in the second half and tacked on a TD pass from Terrell to Ammerman and Blake Waters ran into the end zone for the final score of the night. Senior kicker Luke Higdon was 6 for 7 on extra points on the evening.
