Friday Night Lights: Aurora vs. Northwest Football Friday, October 13, 2017

So often I photograph just the first half of a high school Friday night football game. Or if there are two games I’m assigned to photograph on the same night and same kickoff time it might be a first quarter here and a second quarter there. I’ve done some of my best work while on deadline, but all too often its a hurry up situation and you wish you could have stayed for the entire game. This was one of those games. Aurora took a 28-7 lead into halftime. Northwest came from behind to beat Aurora 35-34.
