Second-half surge lifts Northview to win

BRAZIL — After an error-filled first half, Northview scored 27 unanswered points Friday to defeat Owen Valley 33-16 on a rainy homecoming night at Northview High School.

Northview took advantage of eight Owen Valley turnovers to rally from a 16-6 hole and moved to 3-0 in the Western Indiana Conference. The Patriots are now 3-2 overall and 3-1 in conference play.

“That was something we were challenging our kids with all week. Owen Valley was in first place, 3-0, and we were in second at 2-0,” Northview coach Mark Raetz said.

The Knights recovered five Owen Valley fumbles and intercepted three passes. Northview turned the ball over once in the contest. The Knights have now beaten the Patriots five straight years.

“We really challenged our kids at halftime. We felt like in the first half that we weren’t playing Northview Knights football and playing like we want to represent the school and the community. The kids really responded to the challenge in the second half and I think they played great Northview football,” Raetz said

With Owen Valley leading 16-6, Northview’s Tyler Rector pulled in a 26-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Tucker Stewart with 38 seconds left in the first half. The Knights were down 16-14 at halftime and kicked off to the Patriots to open the second.

Northview’s defense forced OV into a three-and-out series, and on the Knights’ first play of the second half Kelly Hawkins broke a counter play up the right side of the field for a 69-yard touchdown.

Trey Boor’s first successful PAT kick of the night (after two center snap problems) put the Knights up 19-16 and homecoming queen Emily Pollard started smiling.

The Patriots’ troubles increased with the rain through the second half.

Northview’s Derek Mills recovered a fumble the Owen Valley 29-yard line. Northview ran seven straight running plays and Mills scored on an 11-yard run to give the  Knights a 26-16 lead.

“That is what we expect out of an all-senior offensive line. I’m just proud of the kids for coming out in the second half. We really only ran one offensive play and I thought our kids blocked it well and they did a good job finishing the game,” Raetz said.

In the closing seconds of the third period, the Patriots fumbled a punt attempt and Northview’s Logan Mikles came up with the loose ball. Just six plays later Jacob Little scored on a 1-yard run.

Northview recovered two more fumbles and intercepted a third pass on the final play of the game.  

Northview took the opening kickoff and scored on the fourth play of the game when Ben Girton took a short pass from Stewart and went 56 yards for the touchdown.

Owen Valley took the lead on its second possession. The Patriots put together a 12-play, 65-yard drive with Dylan Townsend scoring from the 1. Casey Roberts kicked the point after to put the Patriots up 7-6.

The Patriots marched toward the Knights’ 25-yard line before Hawkins intercepted a pass. But the Knights couldn’t move the ball and punted and once again the Patriots put together a drive.

Owen Valley quarterback Cameron King pitched the ball to Seth Sparks, who turned the ball upfield for a 56-yard touchdown run. Once again Roberts kicked the point after, giving the Patriots a 14-6 advantage.

Northview fumbled the ensuing kickoff and Owen Valley recovered it at the Knights’ 25-yard line. The Patriots reached the Knights’ 8-yard line where, on third-and-goal, Liam Jones intercepted a pass at the 1-yard line. But the Knights couldn’t get away from the end zone and the Patriots dropped a Northview back in the end zone for a safety and 16-6 lead.
