In the final quarter of the game, Atmore scored again making the final score of the game 26-14.
Northview’s head coach Wesley Summerford said, “Yes I thought our players fought hard. Above all, we sometimes turned the ball over too much, and we had our defense on the field too much. We have a quick turnaround this week.”
This upcoming Thursday night, the Tate Aggies will host the Chiefs in Cantonment. Tickets will be available on GoFan.com. Make sure to come out and support, you won’t want to miss it!
