District play could not have opened any better for the Northview Chiefs, who defeated Holmes County High School 34-19 in Bonifay, Fla.
The Chiefs, (2-2, 1-0) put up their highest point total of the season, while making the least amount of mistakes they had made all season.
Head coach Cody Keene said it was a great win for the program, especially to start out district play.
Senior quarterback led the way for Northview with 295 yards of total offense. He carried the ball 16 times for 221 yards and three touchdowns, while passing for 74 yards on 7-of-13 passing with one touchdown of 11 yards to sophomore Austin Arrington.
Senior Kevin Cattrell added to the scoring with an 81-yard dash to the end zone on a kickoff return.
Keene said the scoring tonight was something he knew his team was capable of.
Gaining the victory was not easy for the Chiefs, but they played tough the whole game, according to Keene.
Defensively, the Chiefs played well with a few players having 10 or more tackles. Junior Austin Reid led the team with 12 tackles, senior Brian long had 11 tackles and sophomore Levi Giddeons put up 10 stops for Northview.
Keene said the Chiefs still made mistakes, but with no turnovers it made securing the victory easy.
Next up for the Chiefs is a bye week, followed by a trip to district opponent Baker High School.
Keene said the team is going to take the off week and work on any mistakes they made against Holmes County.
He added that the match up against Baker will be tough, as they have an athletic group of players.
