For a while, it had the looks of being a true underdog story for the TigerHawk football team – but in the end, the Oelwein ground-and-pound was just too much for the younger and less experienced NFV squad.

Only a few hours before kickoff, North Fayette Valley head coach Justin Heins would learn that several of his key starters would miss the game due to COVID-19 precautions, throwing a wrench in the game plan for Friday night’s matchup against the Huskies.

With starting quarterback Tanner Johnson, starting fullback/line backer Liam McIntyre, starting receivers/defensive backs Cole Everitt and Kole Johnson, and several other key players not able to make the trip to Oelwein, many younger and less experienced TigerHawks would need to step up.

After Oelwein found the endzone first on a short 8-yard run, the TigerHawk offense would settle in and get to work.
