Chiefs pose stiff challenge for Gators

Published: Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at 05:33 PM.

The Chief defense has shut out three opponents and is holding the opposition to 17.75 points a game.

Northview runs a 4-4 stack defense and Brunson hopes the Gators can move the ball on the Chiefs.

“We have a chance — if we play well offensively and score every time we have it and protect the ball and keep it away from them,” he said. “Our best defense might be to keep their offense off the field. They’ve got some guys that are good sized and fly to the ball, but we should be able to create some running lanes in there.”

The Gators, who are coming off an open date, beat Jay 48-21 on Oct. 19. Brunson said Baker played its best football of the season in the second half against the Royals.

Brunson hopes the momentum from the win over Jay, coupled with the open week, will work in Baker’s favor against the Chiefs.

“We tried to fine tune some things and add a couple of things for Northview,” he said. “I think we played our best football that we have played all year in the second half against Jay.

“Our guys have continued to improve and worked hard, so we will see what happens Friday.”
