“I did my job (on the interception) and my teammates did their jobs,” Oglesby said. “We came out here to win the district championship and we did it.

“We were confident when we came in here. We knew it was going to be hard fought, and it was. It was exciting to come out on top.”

The Gators added another touchdown in the second quarter when Jon Beck found tight end Kodi Nixon on a 7-yard touchdown pass with 47 seconds left in the first half.

“It (the touchdown) was the best felling I could ever have had,” Nixon said. “It’s amazing.

“It feels pretty good to get back to our winning ways. It had been a long time.”

Northview showed its fire power moving the ball deep into Baker territory.

The Chiefs looked to have scored with time running out in the half, but a chop block penalty negated the touchdown and Baker took a 17-6 lead into the half.
