8th Grade Titans Fall Short to Valley View

The 8th grade Titan football team fell short in their season opener with Valley View, losing 9-12.  After a record 99 yard touchdown run, prompted by a great defensive stand deep in their own territory, Drew Reetz ran the entire length of the field to score first in the game.  The extra point was successfully kicked by Keegan Johnson, a first for the middle school team.  Later in the second quarter the defense forced a safety, putting the Titans up 9-0 at half.  Unfortunately, several drives in the second half stalled out and Valley View was able to capitalize with two scores of their own.  The second score put them up by three with only a minute on the clock.  A good return and two first downs put Norris in scoring position, but time expired before they were able to convert.  The 7th and 8th grade Titans will face their next opponent next week as they take on Waverly (8th-home, 7th-away).
