The Northern Lebanon football team isn’t off to the kind of start that it’s accustomed to. But the reason isn’t that the Vikings are starting their third different quarterback in three years.
Michigan Daub has held up his end of the bargain.
On Friday night at Fred Gahres Stadium, Daub enjoyed another outstanding effort, but it wasn’t enough, as Northern Lebanon dropped a 48-31 decision to its guests from York Suburban. Daub directly had his hands in 228 of the Vikings’ 315 total yards, but his side seemed to be playing catch-up all night long.
Daub completed ten of his 21 pass attempts for 216 yards and a touchdown. He also scored a pair of TDs with his legs.
Daub’s first rushing touchdown, a four-yard keeper, came early in the second stanza and knotted the score at 13 apiece. Then in the third quarter, Daub scored on a two-yard plunge to pull Northern Lebanon to within 34-25 of the lead.
The outcome made the Vikings 2-3 overall, but they are 1-0 in a Lancaster-Lebanon Section Three where they are two-time defending champions.
