The Northwood-Solon Springs football team remained undefeated Friday with a 42-22 victory over Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf in a nonconference game.

Head coach Matt Hager said the Evergreens (5-0) started the game with low energy but “quickly learned that we were not going to be able to sleepwalk to victory.”

At the end of the first half, Northwood-Solon Springs led by just two points, 16-14.

“I challenged our guys at halftime, and reminded them that we didn’t need to panic, we simply needed to play Evergreen football,” Hager said. “The guys did an excellent job out of the half of putting the game away early so that our younger guys could get an opportunity to play.”

The Evergreens scored 20 points in the third quarter and held Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf scoreless to boost their lead to 36-14. Both teams then scored one touchdown apiece in the fourth quarter for the final score of 42-22.
