MOORESVILLE -- On Friday night, Northview went to Mooresville looking to put another victory in their win column.

The Knights would come out in the third quarter with a spark in their eyes.

With full court pressure and by hitting some key shots, the Knights found themselves with a nine point lead with about three minutes left in the quarter.

But the Pioneers weren't done fighting back and by the end of the third period the Knights would only hold a four point lead, 42-38.

The fourth qrter would be a battle, back and forth, trading baskets.

With 3:27 left in the game Mooresville tied the game 49-49. The trading of baskets would continue.

But with 20 seconds left, seniors Josh Timm and Zach Keyes would hit five important free throws to seal the victory 58-55.
