Northview Beats Vancleave

September 24, 2016

The Northview Chiefs beat the Vancleave (MS) Bulldogs Friday night on the road, 25-3.

“It was a great four quarter game from our guys,” Northview Head Coach Dereck Marshman said. “We preached all week about how physical Vancleave was. Our guys responded and dominated physically for four quarters.”

“I felt it was by far our most complete game. Couldn’t be more proud about how we imposed our will to win tonight,” Marshman added.

The Chiefs were first on the scoreboard of the Mississippi school with a Luke Ward touchdown with 3:30 on the clock in the first. A missed extra point, and Northview was up 6-0. Just seconds before the half, Ward was in for another TD, 13-0.

With 6:41 in the third, the Bulldogs kicked a 39-yard field goal to make the score 13-3. The Chiefs struck again with 1:14 left in the third, Ward scored his third touchdown of the night, 19-3.

Seconds into the fourth quarter, Northview added another touchdown, this time from Hunter Edwards to make it 25-3.

With his three touchdowns, Ward had 18 carries for 125 yards. He also had 58 yards in the air. Edwards had a rushing touchdown, while Jeremiah Woods had 14 carries for 54 yards.

Defensively, Edwards recorded nine tackles, one QB sack and an interception. Jared Aliff had six tackles and two sacks. Neikel Robinson had an interception and two punt returns for 65 yards. Ward also had one punt return for 45 yards.

The Chiefs are on the road again next Friday night, this time to Maplesville, AL, about 30 miles north of Selma.
