Nordhoff’s football season went from bad to downright ugly Friday night when they hosted the Bishop Diego Cardinals in their regular season finale.
The Cardinals jumped on Nordhoff early and built a commanding 27-0 first quarter lead. That’s when things got ugly and fight broke out between the two teams. Several Nordhoff players were ejected by game officials and additional NHS players walked off the field, quitting on their teammates.
It took officials several minutes to sort out the details and when they did, the game restarted with a running clock in the second quarter. NHS would manage to score 14 points, but that would not be enough as the Cardinals strolled to a 41-14 victory.
