Written By Palladium-Item--FOUNTAIN CITY, Ind. – Kelsy Kirkland rushed for 202 yards and Northeastern won its second straight game, defeating Monroe Central 24-0 on Friday.
The Knights’ scoring started with a safety.
“We were happy to be able to shut out a team that was averaging close to 30 points, and they were 2-0,” said Northeastern coach Mike Roeder. “Our defense really got it done tonight.”
The Knights were coming off a TEC victory last week over Winchester.
“We were worried about this week,” Roeder said. “We were worried about maybe a little bit of a letdown by the kids after a big win. There was no sign of that this evening.”
Northeastern (2-1) travels Friday to Hagerstown. Monroe Central (2-1) is home with Union City for Alumni night. Gates open at 5:00 for Hog Roast kick-off at 7:30.
