Vikings lose in a close game

The Vikings did many things right, but unfortunately many errors cost them a victory against Wauneta Palisade at last Friday’s homecoming game.  At the start of the game, the Vikings gave up an early touchdown, but soon after marched down the field and scored on a twelve yard touchdown run by Ethan Klingenberg.  Jarett Bieker kicked the extra point to make it 8-7 in favor of the Broncos. In the second quarter, Wauneta-Palisade scored on a two yard run, but the Vikings bounced back on a thirty-two yard run by Klingenberg, putting Bertrand behind by 1 point.  The Broncos scored late in the half to make the score 20-13 in favor of the Wauneta-Palisade going into halftime.

The Vikings scored early in the 3rd quarter when Arik Ackerman hit Jarett Bieker on a five yard touchdown pass.  The Vikings picked up the two-point conversion on a fake extra point as Ackerman passed to Jackson Furlong in the end zone giving the Vikings the lead.  Later in the third quarter, Wauneta-Palisade scored a touchdown on a tipped pass that fell into the hands of a Bronco receiver for a touchdown for the final score of the game. 

The Vikings had many chances, but were unable to score as penalties and unforced errors plagued the Vikings as they fell short. The Vikings play at Loomis Friday, September 27 at 7 pm.
