Senior Eli Norton paced the ground game with 113 yards on 19 rushes, and a 7-yard TD run to put the Vikings up 8-0 in the second quarter. Norton also played well at defensive end.

Luke McKenna added a 3-yard touchdown run and had a sack on defense. Delva kicked two extra points and Ryan Pearson ran in for a two-point conversion for NT.

After Minuteman (1-3) scored to make it 8-6, Nashoba Tech scored the game's final 20 points.
