Northview loses at MariannaPublished 12:40am Saturday, September 7, 2013
Transportation wasn’t the only problem for the Northview Chiefs in a 28-6 loss at Marianna.
The Chiefs arrived late to the game because their bus broke down, but inconsistency and poor tackling were among the issues to blame in the loss, said coach Sid Wheatley.
“We turned the ball over while moving down the field,” he said. “Defensively, we didn’t tackle well. There were quite a few plays where we didn’t get lined up right.”
The Chiefs lost three fumbles and one interception in the loss. The lone Northview touchdown came on a 27-yard pass from quarterback Daulton Tullis to Cameron Newsome.
In total, the Chiefs racked up 127 yards passing and 70 yards on the ground.
Tullis played well at quarterback, Wheatley said, while running back Ladarius Thomas “ran hard for us” to the tune of 50 yards.
Defensively, the Chiefs were bolstered by Hunter Sherouse, who had nine tackles, as well as Jeffery Taylor and Emanuel Etheridge with seven tackles each.
Northview travels to Chipley next week.
