SULLIVAN -- Sullivan overcame a 22-12 deficit against visiting Northview's junior varsity football team on Saturday to win 26-22.
The Knights took the early initiative, scoring on a quarterback throwback that went 48 yards from Justin White to Trent Lancaster. After Nathan Williams ran in the two-point conversion, the Knights had an 8-0 advantage.
Sullivan answered back with a score to narrow the gap to 8-6 before Andrick Branham powered in for a four-yard TD run for the Knights. Corey Crowder scored the conversion as Northview took the 16-6 lead.
After Sullivan scored to bring themselves within 16-12, Justin White ran in an eight-yard touchdown to seemingly lock things up at 22-12.
Sullivan would come back to score two times in the waning minutes of the game to take a 26-22 lead with just two minutes left in the game.
Northview would put together a promising closing drive as the clock ticked down, but on the final play, Sullivan was able to intercept a pass to cap the Arrows' victory.
"Overall it was a good game but we just made too many mistakes," commented coach Craig Trout. "(Sullivan) had too many big plays. Our defense played well at times but we have a lot of improving to do."
Northview is now 1-1 and travel to Owen Valley on Monday.
