Northern continued their push for a playoff clinch with an important 35-0 win against Susquehanna Township in Week 9. Susquehanna Township’s night could be summed up in one sequence. First, on the five-yard line, a fumble on the goal line is recovered by Northern. Then, the Polar Bears’ Talon Ballusio breaks an 80-yard run on the very next play for the first score of the game, 7-0. Northern would have everyone produce on offense including some plays from the back pages of the playbook to cruise to the 35-0 victory.
