The Northwestern Trojans raced to a three-touchdown lead at halftime and defeated the Dorman Cavaliers 42-28 in a non-region game Friday night.

Northwestern went up 35-7 early in the third period when Moloney connected with Harris on a 79-yard play.

Several plays later Howard scored on a 71-yard scamper to give the Trojans a 42-21 lead early in the fourth period.

On deck: Northwestern will host South Mecklenberg next Friday night at 7:30.
