Northview got back on track with a huge victory on Friday night as they traveled to Santa Rosa Beach, Fla., to take on the South Walton Seahawks.

The Chiefs (2-1, 0-0) cruised out to a 34-0 halftime lead and continued to dominate in the second half on their way to a 47-8 win over the hosting Seahawks.

After having a good week of practices, Chiefs head coach Sid Wheatley said he was confident that his team would have a better game than they did against Chipley last week.

“I thought all week that our practices were better than they were last week,” he said. “We went back to the basics and it paid off. I wanted our team to come out and start fast and play that way for four quarters. We accomplished that against South Walton.”

The Chiefs offense did damage all night as they tallied up close to 600 yards of offense. The running game led the way picking up more than 500 yards on the ground. Several Chiefs put scores into the end zone including quarterback Brandon Sheets who had a rushing and passing touchdown. Running back La’Mikal Kyles pitched in a rushing touchdown and caught Sheets’ passing touchdown.

Also getting in on the action were running back Montaio Mitchell with two rushing touchdowns and fullback Roderick Woods with a run to the end zone as well.

Defensively, the Chiefs played a more aggressive game this week bringing in more blitzes for the Seahawks to deal with.

Having a much improved defense helped keep the Seahawks offense at bay for much of the game, Wheatley said.

“Our defense played a whole lot better this week,” he said. “We played more physical and were more aggressive in our schemes by bringing more guys in on the blitz.”

Next week, the Chiefs finally come home to Bratt, Fla. to take on the Gulf Breeze Dolphins.

The Dolphins bring in a competitive team for the Chiefs to deal with, Wheatley said.

“It’s going to be a big challenge for our guys,” he said. “They have a good football team with a talented offense that scores a lot of points. Their defense plays solid football, so it’s going to be a tough match up.”

Northview and Gulf Breeze kick off at 7 p.m. at Chiefs Stadium at Northview High School.
