It seemed the only thing that slowed down Daniel Adams and the Northeastern offense in the first half Friday against Susquehannock was penalty flags.

The Bobcats accumulated 65 yards of penalties in the first half, including drawing a flag even before the opening kickoff.

However, the Northeastern offense chugged along in the first 24 minutes to the tune of 34 points and 288 yards, and the Bobcats tacked on seven second half points en route to a 41-6 homecoming win.

Adams led the Northeastern offense with 121 rushing yards and three touchdowns on scoring runs of 71, 3 and 5 yards.

"The last of couple of games, the offense hasn't been putting that many points on the board. So, this game we told ourselves that we were going to come out and score," Adams said.

Northeastern (5-2, 2-0 Division II), scored on five of its six first-half possessions, leading 34-6 at halftime.

Adams scored all three of his touchdowns in the first half, going for 120 yards on just 11 carries during that time.

"Daniel is our guy. Everybody in York knows it," Northeastern coach Brendan Brown said. "When Daniel goes, we go. Our offense feeds off of him."

Adams' most impressive run of the night was the 71-yard touchdown scamper in the first quarter. The senior cut to the left, broke a few tackles, then sped up the left sideline and into the end zone at 3:55.

"The line made a good hole and I got outside and just made a move and kept moving to the end zone," Adams said.

Bobcats quarterback Alec Miller also had a big game, going 6-for-11 for 138 yards and three touchdown passes.

Miller connected with Zach Moyer on two of those touchdown passes, hitting big scoring plays of 50 and 34 yards.

"That's the first time we've had Zach Moyer full speed in about five weeks," Brown said. "When he's in there, it makes our offense harder to stop."

In all, the Bobcats had 80 penalty yards, including a 15-yard penalty before the contest even began.

"They called us for being too close to midfield when our team broke it down," Brown said. "We've done it the same way every game since I've been here, and it's never been a problem."

Susquehannock (0-7, 0-2) scored on its first drive of the game, with Sammy Miller getting into the end zone from 3 yards out.

Bryan Kerr ran for 25 yards and passed for 65 for the Warriors.
