Trailing by one in the second overtime, after having scored a touchdown, Northview went for two. The same thing happened in a college game Saturday. Why go for two in the second overtime when in the third it's mandatory? Kick the extra-point then take the chance later. If you're going to do it do it in the first overtime.
