Catholic Cruises Past The Northview Chiefs (With Photo Gallery)

October 14, 2017

The 1A Northview Chiefs lost their homecoming game to the 3A Catholic Crusaders 41-22 Friday night in Bratt.

The Chiefs scored on their opening drive….a 10 and a half minute drive capped by a two-yard touchdown run from sophomore Trent Peebles. With a missed extra point, the Chiefs held a 6-0 lead in Tommy Weaver Memorial Stadium.

“I though we had a great first drive,” Northview head coach Derek Marshman said.

But remainder of the second half was not as kind to the Chiefs as Catholic fought back to a 35-6 lead at the half.

The Chiefs scored with 3:30 to go in the third when junior Daniel Merit recovered a Crusaders fumble and ran it in from 30-yards out, and scored again in the fourth when Jayden Jackson was in from 3 yards out.

“I thought we moved the ball well; I though we dominated upfront on the line of scrimmage. We had a few problems backside but that is gonna be fixed. This is the first time we have run this offense in a while so it was good to be able to move the football, but there are still things we’ve gotta fix and things we need to improved. We have a bye week next week to work on that,” Marshman said. “We continue to fight. It’s just a process and I know the kids are tired of hearing ‘a process’, I thought we finished great. We won the second half against a big school, probably¬† one of the best schools we are going to play this year. They are a 3A but they are traditionally a power house in Pensacola.”

The Northview Chiefs are off next week. The Chiefs (1-7) will hope for a huge 1A upset on October 27 in Bratt as they host the Baker Gators (7-0).
