(NORTH CANTON, Ohio) – Walsh couldn't withstand a second half scoring frenzy by Northwood as it fell 41-13 in the regular season finale Saturday afternoon. The Cavaliers (1-10, 0-10) trailed the Timberwolves (3-8, 3-8) just 10-6 at halftime, but the visitors scored 31 points in the final two frames to open the lead.
The Cavaliers cut the deficit to 17-13 midway through the third quarter after Reid Worstell found Matt Mattuska on a double-pass trick play that also involved Tony Tate from 16 yards out. However Northwood would return the ensuing kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown. Two defensive touchdowns in the fourth quarter also stretched out its lead.
Jacob Maloy provided the remainder of the Cavaliers' points with field goals from lengths of 22 yards and 20 yards. The first capped a 14-play, 66-yard drive that opened the game. The second ended an 18-yard, 86 yard drive just before the end of the second half.
Defensively Tim Cook and Nick King led the team with seven tackles each.
