Ball control offense and standout defense led North Muskegon to its third consecutive victory, 28-7 over Whitehall.
It was an almost identical attack for the Norse as they gained 146 yards running and 148 yards in the air for a balanced offensive effort.
Logan Waller sparked the Norse with two touchdowns. The first came from 10 yards out for a first-quarter score and then a 19-yard TD pass from Brody Scott in the second quarter.
Holden VanderWeele scampered 4 yards for first quarter TD and the Norse added a touchdown off a half back pass to Mitchel Edicks from 19 yards to build up a 28-0 halftime advantage.
Whitehall struggled to move the ball against the Norse in both halves, gaining only 135 yards for the night.
The Vikings received a break in the fourth quarter as they recovered a fumble on the 44 yard line. Connor Rake put Whitehall on the board throwing a strike to Cheston Manns for a touchdown and added an extra point by Matt Rohen.
Manns had 2 catches for 56 yards for the Vikings.
Waller had 106 total yards, including 47 rushing and had three catches for 59 yards. Vanderweele gained 56 yards on 15 carries to lead the Norse.
Keenan Aylor had 10 tackles for the Vikings.
