NORWAY - Norway struck for 26 points in the fourth quarter and blanked Gwinn 34-0 in Mid-Peninsula Conference football Friday at Ronberg Field in Norway.
"We played well," Norway Coach Bob Madigan said. "We fought through some adversity (with injuries), but the kids stepped up and did it."
Jordan Neumann's 6-yard run and conversion put the Knights on top 8-0 in the second quarter. Neumann led the Knights with 142 yards on 26 carries.
In the fourth period, fourth-string quarterback Zavier Gonzalez flipped a 5-yard touchdown pass to Nick Pearman.
Gonzalez, taking his first snaps at quarterback, was replacing injured quarterback Taylor Bonetti.
"Zavier's a good athlete, but he hadn't played quarterback," Madigan said.
