The Golden Hawks fumbled twice, committed six penalties for 55 yards, and dropped a wide-open touchdown pass through the hands of the receiver.
After an impressive 31-0 victory in week one against East Stroudsburg North, the Northampton football team learned that its competition in the EPC South is on a different level.
