The Northview freshman boys' basketball team picked up its third win in 10 games Wednesday night in a defensive battle with Bloomfield High School, 21-13.

The scoring struggles started early for both teams, with Northview scoring only six in the first quarter to Bloomfield's five.

The Knights' Jacob Harden was the most active in the quarter, grabbing four rebounds, a steal and adding three points.

Gabe Rodgers also added a 3-pointer for the Knights.

In the second quarter the Knights' offense sputtered and was only able to tally two points on an Antoney Bryan field goal.

Bloomfield added six in the quarter and at halftime the Knights trailed 16-14.

In the second half the Knights' defense looked dominant and only allowed two points in the final two quarters, which included a shutout in the third.

Keegan Roembke, Rogers and Harden, who scored four, five and four respectively, led the Knights offensively in the second half.

In the end, the Knights secured the victory 21-13 to improve to 3-7 on the season and host Terre Haute North on Thursday at 6 p.m.
