Vikings With The Win Against Southwest

Last Friday night, the Viking boys traveled to Bartley where they took on the Southwest Rough-Riders. Tyrell Younger played a key role in sparking the Vikings. From running the ball well, to playing exceptional defense, he was on fire until he was sidelined from an injury to the hand. The subs in for Younger did their role as well. By  adding touchdowns and great defense, it limited the Riders to 6 points in the first half.  It was another great win for the Vikings with the final score being 50 to 28. Coach Colfack said, ” This week the boys have a bye due to Elwood’s season being canceled.”

The Vikings will be on the road on Oct. 9 when they take on Alma at 7:00 pm.
