A 53-yard touchdown run by Andrew Voorhees on Northgate's first possession became a familiar theme for the Broncos.

Scoring runs of 71 yards by Jimmy Sharpe and 69 yards by Fisi Tavake, and Brandon Lee's 48-yard touchdown pass from Joe Pelletier, along with a safety on the ensuing kickoff, gave the Broncos (2-1) a 33-0 lead less than 11 minutes into the game.

The Broncos ran for 467 yards on 39 carries -- a staggering 11.7-yard average -- led by Tavake with 112 yards on just four carries. Alameda's defense gave Northgate a little trouble between the tackles, but the Hornets (1-1) could not keep up once the Broncos got around the corner.

Pelletier, who was 4-of-4 for 93 yards, also threw a 13-yard touchdown to Jake Smith. Nick Mastrelli put the finishing touches on the rout with a 91-yard touchdown run one play after Sharpe's 82-yard touchdown was nullified by a holding penalty.

The Bronco defense shut down Alameda quarterback Jesse Lewis, who had thrown for 330 yards and five TDs the previous week. Lewis completed 11of 27 passes for 103 yards.
