Northview’s perfect run rolls on with win over BG

Northview struggled at times to move the ball against visiting Bowling Green on Friday night, but relied on its defense until getting a late touchdown to take a 22-15 Northern Lakes League football victory to stay unbeaten.

The Wildcats (7-0, 4-0 NLL) were clinging to a 16-15 lead until Joey Okeke scored his second touchdown of the game, this one on a 10-yard run with 1:52 remaining.

Northview, which failed on a two-point conversion try attempting to seal the game, then had to hold off a late drive by the Bobcats. FULL STORY ■ IN PICTURES ■ VIDEO

The Eagles, the top-ranked team in the latest Division V poll, led 12-0 at the half. But Eastwood pulled away with the dominant rushing game backed by a relentless defense and key special teams plays. 

In a battle of unbeaten teams in the Northern Buckeye Conference, Eastwood (7-0) moved to 4-0 in the NBC and handed Otsego (5-2, 3-1) its first league loss. FULL STORY ■ IN PICTURES
