FELCH - The only person covering James D. Priestap Memorial Field better than North Dickinson's ground game the past two weeks is the guy cutting the grass.

The Nordics, ripping off another 344 yards rushing, plowed Newberry 42-6 here Friday night in a non-conference football game.

North Dickinson's offense has now run for 812 yards in its first two games.

"We got things going a little bit tonight," Nordics head coach Joe Reddinger said. "The rust is starting to come off."

ND finished with a 365-149 edge in total yards as Newberry got all but 15 of its yards on the ground, too. John Nolan led Indians rushers with 56 yards in 11 carries.

ND (2-0 overall, 1-0 Mid-Eastern Conference) scored touchdowns on all but its first possession of the game with four players finding the end zone.

Matt Schultz, gaining 30 yards on nine carries, had two scoring runs in the first half, his second putting the Nordics ahead 21-0 just before halftime.

The Indians' Christopher Ducsay capped a 57-yard, six-play drive with a five-yard TD with 7:19 to play.
