The Indians #60 Taylor Roane chases the Lancaster quarterback. He was one of several Indian linemen that made for a long night for the Red Devils.

The Northumberland varsity football season began with a 21-2 win over longtime rival Lancaster on Friday night. It wasn’t pretty. It certainly wasn’t easy. But, it was an opening game win.

Both teams struggled in the opening quarter. The Indians’ offense sputtered while their defense kept Lancaster pretty much bottled up.
