Northview coach Jeremy Greenwell said his Chiefs fed off the excitement of a sold out crowd.

“We’ve got the whole community, as many people as we could get in here,” he said of the crowd, which was limited due to the pandemic.¬† “They made it a great environment…The players played exactly how we expected them to; they played up to they hype. We don’t expect any less as a program.”

Also Friday night, Jay lost to Holmes County 3-2. That sets up a regional final Tuesday night with Northview travelling to Bonifay to face  Holmes County.

“We are not going to try to instill anything new, just stay with fundamentals,” Greenwell said of the teams prep for Tuesday. “We’ll hold a short practice on Monday to get ready for Bonifay on Tuesday.”
