Northview’s football team lost its first district game of the season 34-21 to the Baker Gators Friday night on the road.
The Chiefs (2-3, 1-1) fell to Baker after winning their last game against Holmes County.
Head coach Cody Keene said the Gators were athletic and had a quarterback that seemed unstoppable.
Points have not been hard to come by for the Chiefs in the last few weeks, and Friday night proved to be no different as the offense, led by senior quarterback Jay Jackson, placed 21 on the scoreboard.
Keene said the offense played a tough game, and put enough points on the board to win.
The Chiefs defense struggled all night to bring down the athletic quarterback from Baker, and just as much against the rest of the opposing offense that put up 34 points.
Keene said the Chiefs had trouble tackling and putting hits on whoever had the ball. He added that should be focus put on watching where the ball is and hitting the player with the ball.
This week the Chiefs take aim for their trip to Blountstown High School.
Keene said the Chiefs will be back on the practice field Monday getting back to the basics.
