GARWIN - Class A No. 4 North Tama jumped all over GMG from the outset and ran away with a 60-0 win as the 2010 state champion Redhawks had a strong start to the year.
The Redhawks (1-0) scored 46 first-half points to put things away early.
A blocked punt by Dalton Hulme was scooped up by Mitchell Boerm for a score at the 10-minute mark, and North Tama added touchdown runs from Nick Whannel and Jacob Wrage in the frame.
