Northview Chiefs Cruise Past Chipley 41-6 (With Photo Gallery)

September 17, 2016

The Northview Chiefs cruised to 41-6 win over Chipley Friday night in Bratt.

Quarterback Luke Ward led the Chiefs with just under 500 yards on the night — 253 yards on the ground and three touchdowns, and 216 yards with two TD’s in the air.

With 10:24 on the clock in the first, Northview’s Neikel Robinson had 70-yard interception return that, coupled with a good point after kick from Seth Killam, gave the Chiefs a 7-0 lead early. Robinson added 137 yards for Northview on six catches before the night was over.

“We started fast, which was key for us,” Northview Head Coach Derek Marshman said. “We had not started fast all season before tonight. It has been an ongoing process, knowing we had to start fast. Finally tonight we got a good first half together and we were able to control the ball for all four quarters.”

The Chiefs scored again with 3:00 in the first on a TD-pass from Ward to Josh Smith, and with less than a minute in the first on a QB-keeper from Ward to end the first up 21-0.

A Rayvon Bush TD for Northview and the lone touchdown of the night for Chipley made it 28-6 at the half.

The Chiefs opened the third with another quarterback keeper from Ward, 34-6. And Ward was in for another with 7:56 to go in the ballgame to make it 41-6 and set a running clock into motion.

Next Friday night, the Chiefs begin a three-week road series of nearly 1,000 miles to Van Cleave, MS, followed by Maplesville, AL, and Liberty County, FL.
