Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Proctor football team held Pierz scoreless until late in the fourth quarter and used touchdowns from Joe Carter and Brodie Nordquist to beat the Pioneers 19-6 at Malosky Stadium on Friday night.
Carter got the Rails on the board in the first quarter 7-0 after an interception by Logan Ecklund put Proctor in good field position.
That was the same score until the fourth quarter when Nordquist got free and added a touchdown from 29 yards out. Calen Porter sealed the deal after he returned an interception for a TD on the ensuing possession.
