The Northview Chiefs cannot seem to find their sync this year. After traveling to Bonifay this past Friday night, the Chiefs came home defeated in a 42 to 13 blow against Holmes County.
The whole first half of the game was nothing but a show-out for Holmes County. Their star seemed to be senior player Michael Paul who intercepted one time and even ran over 80 yards for a touchdown. Northview saw none of that type of action at all during the game. The defense could not stop them. Before the half-time band shows, the Chiefs were down 35 to 0.
Finally, the Chiefs were able to hit the scoreboard during the second half with 2 touchdowns and 1 good extra point, but again, the defense could not stop Holmes County. They plowed through for another touchdown and good extra point during the final quarter, making the final score 42 to 13.
The Chiefs have now won only 1 game and have lost 4 this season, but Friday night they will be playing Freeport on the Chiefs’ turf. Everyone is hoping for a massive change for the Chiefs. There is still time to make this a winning season. Northview has always had super athletes, and this year’s players fit that bill as well. Skills, dedication, determination and grit needs to come shining through before this Friday night, from the top all the way down to the managers. Northview is known for rebounding; however, it is usually during half-time when fans see this. They have always been able to regroup and come back during the second half and end the game as winners. This has not been the case so far, but fans need to be prepared for an unexpected reprieve. Just as the seasons are changing, Monday practices will see some new grills and drills for our Chiefs. You can bet on it!
Keep on shining, Chiefs. We need a “W” against Freeport!
See ya’ at the game.
