5A high school football preview: Northridge at Jordan

Published: Thursday, Nov. 1 2012 2:47 p.m. MDT

Jordan has scored at least 33 points in every game and eclipsed 50 points in five games. As good as Northridge’s defense has played this year, it’s unrealistic to expect the Region 1 runner-ups to stop Jordan. To have a chance, it will need to match the ‘Diggers touchdown for touchdown in what could be a very high-scoring quarterfinal.
