With the win, the Chiefs will play at home next week in the first round of the FHSAA’s Class 1A state playoffs.

NHS led 21-7 at the end of the first quarter, and 42-7 at halftime.

Marshman said the boys ran the ball well, and blocked well on offense. Additionally, he said he felt the defense was real physical, a first this season.

NHS won’t know who it will face until Sunday morning, when the playoff brackets are released by the FHSAA.
