Baker took the opening kick of the second half and covered 51 yards on five plays.

A 35-yard touchdown pass from Beck to Richard Stroheker on a fourth-and-8 play caught the Chiefs off guard and turned out to be the final Gator score with 10:10 left in the third quarter.

The Chiefs moved to the Baker 11 on Northview’s first possession of the third quarter before Ben Crowson forced a fumble that was recovered for the Gators by Brandon Engler.

Unfortunately for the Gators they fumbled the ball away on the next play.

Baker then had to weather a storm as the Chiefs came charging back.

Brannon Freeman scored on a 17-yard pass from Tullis with 5:06 left in the third quarter.

Northview’s final score came on a 3-yard run by Keondrae Lett with 7:06 left in the game.
