A scoring explosion took place on Monday night between the Northview and Linton JV football teams.
The squads combined for 92 points as Northview came out on top 56-36.
The Knights fired the opening salvo early in the contest when Damon Smith rambled in from 60 yards out on a TD run, but the Miners answered right back to tie the score at 6-all.
Northview found the endzone again as Justin White caught a 10-yard TD pass from Trent Lancaster and White made the two-point conversion for a 14-6 lead.
Linton would tie the score before the first quarter came to a close.
The Knights began the second quarter much like they started the game as Corey Crowder took off for a 54-yard run that found the endzone. Lancaster then hit Broc Potter for a 13-yard score and the Knights led 28-14.
Momentum swung back to Linton when they scored on the offensive side of the ball and followed with an interception return for a TD to tie the game at 28-all.
The third quarter was the key to the victory as Northview pinned four scores on the Miners.
Joel Rector hauled in a 48-yard TD reception from Justin White to kick off the scoring. Linton answered with a touchdown and took the lead when their two-point conversion was good, 36-34.
Jonathan Bradshaw got into the scoring action on a 12-yard TD pass from White and Zach Boetjer caught the two-point conversion for a 42-36 Northview lead.
White used his legs to score the next touchdown and Joel Rector finished the scoring on a 17-yard reverse play. Andrick Branham scored on the conversion to cap the scoring.
The fourth quarter was scoreless and the Knights improved to 3-1 overall.
"This was another good win for our JV team," commented coach Craight Trout. "A lot of credit goes to our offense for their explosion of points in the second half. Also we have to credit our defense and Coach Broc Leslie for figuring (Linton) out in the second half. This is a great group of kids that step up when they need to and win games."
The Knights will play at Vincennes on Monday.
