Northmor fell at Black River on Friday night in a regular season football contest by a 27-7 margin.

Neither team could get on the board in the first quarter, but Black River took a 7-0 lead into the half. They would add a pair of scores in the third period and widened their lead to a 27-0 margin midway through the fourth.

The Golden Knights, who are currently 2-6, averted the shutout late in the game when Tyler Boggs ran the ball into the end zone from two yards out. Caleb Schnuerer added the point-after kick.
