#6 NORLAND BLANKS SOUTHWEST, 41-0 

For the first time this season, Southwest made it through a game without a delay, but the Eagles (1-4) fell to Norland, 41-0, at Traz Powell Stadium. Despite being shutout for the second week in a row, this was a better performance by Southwest considering the Vikings are the sixth-ranked team in the county. The Eagles defense, along with 6 major penalties against Norland, kept the game scoreless through one quarter. The Vikings finally dented the scoreboard early in the second period on a 14-yard run. By halftime, their lead was 21-0. Norland scored a fluke TD on the second play from scrimmage in the second half when a Vikings player recovered an offensive fumble in mid-air and ran it 48 yards for the score. The final margin came as a result of two fourth-quarter scores, the last a 29-yard run on the final play of the game. The Eagles best chance to score came on their second possession of the game when a Jordan Worley fumble recovery gave Southwest a first down at the Norland 35. But two incompletions, followed by a loss of ten yards, forced the Eagles to punt. Southwest never got across midfield again. The stats are here.
