Last Friday the boys competed against the Alma Cardinals. The Vikings who have been battling minor injuries throughout the season, were suddenly plagued with adversities. Both of the Viking running backs and best tacklers were hurt before half. Cooper Grabenstein was injured with a high ankle sprain in the second possession of the game. Although he remained in the game, his mobility was severely limited. Tyrell Younger and Wyatt Wilken, both injured toward the end of the first quarter, were taken out of the game completely. This gave the younger players a chance to step in and play different positions, some of which they were not accustom to playing. Miles Peterson played 5 different positions on both offense and defense including full back, tight end, wide receiver, defensive end and linebacker.
Although the boys continued to play very well, the game ended in a loss with a score of 40-32. The Vikings will return to action against Kenesaw on Friday, Oct. 16 at 7:00 following the volleyball game.
