Third Time’s The Charm? Northview Looks For State Semifinal Win

November 30, 2012

The Northview High School Chiefs hope the third time is the charm tonight as they travel to Liberty County in the 1A state semifinal game.

For the Chiefs, it’s the third consecutive trip to the state semifinal game, falling short last year to Chipley 25-21 and losing to Trinity Christian 49-14 in 2010. It’s the third overall appearance in the semi’s for Liberty County. The Bulldogs lost at the semifinal level in 1998 and lost in the state championship game in 1995.

The Bulldogs are 10-2 headed into tonight’s matchup. They have won nine in a row and have not lost a game at home this year.

The Northview Chiefs are 9-3. Their only losses have come at the hands of much larger schools with strong programs — Class 5A  West Florida (10-1), Class 5A Gulf Breeze (7-4) and Class 4A Marianna (8-2).

Up until last week, the Chiefs had destroyed all 1A opponents this year by an average of five touchdowns. But last Friday night, the trip to the semi’s came down to a 34-28 overtime win over Freeport.

The CBS Sports website projects Northview to win 28-22 tonight.
