Graham Oberer accounted for 371 yards of total offense (251 passing, 128 rushing) and three touchdown tosses as Northmont (2-1) stole a road win at Lakota East.
An opportunistic Oberer made the Thunderhawks pay for three turnovers in a come-from-behind victory. Three different Thunderbolts receivers caught scores from their quarterback as Cameron Taylor, Ryan Smith and Jonny Lowery all found the end zone. Taylor finished the night with seven catches for 100 yards.
The frustrating night saw Lakota East gain 321 yards on the ground and average 7.6 per carry. Bobby Brown led the way with 170 yard on 11 carries and two touchdowns.
Quarterback Eric Eichler also pitched in with 71 yards and a score. Miscues were just too much for Lakota East to overcome.
Northmont hosts Fairborn (1-2) on Sept. 20. The Thunderbolts have a legitimate shot at reeling off five in a row with a schedule that is conducive to winning. Lakota East stays at home as juggernaut Colerain (3-0) comes opens GMC play.
