1A Northview Chiefs Battle To 35-28 Win Over 4A Walton

October 25, 2014

The 1A Northview Chiefs battled to a 35-28 win over the 4A Walton Braves of Defuniak Springs Friday night in Bratt – a battle between two teams headed into the playoffs in their respective classes.

“That was a great football game. That was two very good football teams competing at a high level with big plays back and forth,” Northview Coach Sid Wheatley said. “Their offense is explosive, and they’ve got a heck of a running back that is just so physical and hard to get on the ground.”

The Braves jumped out to an early 7-0 lead just 40 seconds into the game.  The Chiefs evened it out at 7-7 with 7:03 in the first with a 10-yard run from Keondrae Lett and a good kick from Chasen Freeman. Still in the first, with 1:54 on the board, Cameron Newsome added another Chiefs TD, 13-7.

With 6:48 in the second, Walton took a 14-13 lead, with Northview popping back on top 21-14 and carrying a lead into the half.

At 7:10 in the third, Lett added another Northview TD for a 28-14 lead over the Walton Braves , who answered with another touchdown two minutes later, 28-20 Northview on top.

After Walton tied it up 28-28, Northview took the lead at 35-28 with 55 seconds in third quarter on a Jacob Dunsford pass to Nick Lambert for a 77-yard touchdown. The Chiefs held on for the win with a scoreless fourth quarter.

“It’s a huge win, and hopefully it’s going to carry us over into next week,” Wheatley said.

Next Friday is shaping up to be the game of the regular season for the Chiefs as they travel Highway 4 take on the Baker Gators for the district championship. The Gators are rolling on an 18 game regular season winning streak, while Northview is 6-1 with their single loss against much larger 6A Choctawhatchee. Both NHS and BHS are 2-0 on the district.

“It’s going to be fun; it’s going to be exiting. Our kids are anxious,” Wheatley said. “I think our kids know exactly what is at stake. Some of these guys were here last year when Baker came over and beat us and won the district championship. What we’ve got to do is execute and not have turnovers. We need to just play clean football, but I believe we’ll be ready.”
