BLAIRSBURG - Quality, not quantity, produced stellar results for the Northeast Hamilton football team during the final night of the regular season here on Friday. At first glance the final score may look out of hand. The reality is the Trojans did everything in their power to pull off the throttle.Northeast Hamilton scored eight touchdowns on just 15 first-half plays in sending CAL to its 54th consecutive loss, 72-12, on the Trojans' homecoming. Four of the touchdowns occurred on the initial five plays from scrimmage and after 12 minutes Northeast Hamilton had piled up a 48-point lead in the Class 8-man District 2 contest. NEH led 64-0 at halftime and amassed 262 yards during the first 24 minutes. The Trojans averaged 17.4 yards per play. "Our execution was excellent and we did everything we wanted to do," NEH head coach John Seiser said about his team's final tune-up before it begins postseason play on Wednesday. "We needed to get a little bit of a boost after the last couple of weeks." NEH will now begin preparations for Wednesday's first-round playoff test against eighth-ranked and defending state champion Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. from Marcus.
