It wasn’t the way anyone wanted to start, but it was definitely the finish everyone in TigerHawk black and blue was looking for.

“I think it was partly the kids getting used to the speed of their offense,” said coach Justin Heins in reference to NFV getting behind by two touchdowns early in Friday night’s round two playoff win over Monticello. “We switched from running more zone defense to more of a man-to-man defense.”
