ORANGE CRUSH

UNBEATEN PANTHERS' DEFENSE STYMIES NORTHWOOD

Orange’s defense shut down Northwood, 14-7, in a battle of unbeatens Friday at Orange.

The two teams combined for all 21 points in the game’s first nine minutes, but the defenses tightened up the rest of the way, choking off the expected shootout.

The Panther defense harassed Northwood quarterback Ti Pinnix all night, sacking him four times and chasing him from the pocket repeatedly. Orange added three tackles for loss on Northwood running backs and held the Chargers to 56 yards on the ground.

Orange also managed to shut down Northwood’s big-play wide receiver, Jalen Smith. Cornerbacks Keshawn Thompson and A.J. Bradsher took turns guarding Smith, holding him to two catches for 26 yards and several incompletions as Pinnix tried to find an opening to get Smith the ball.

The Orange defense also had two red-zone stands, preventing Northwood from getting the game-tying touchdown.
