The Perry County Vikings (2-6, 0-4 R6-1A) traveled to McEwen this past Friday night to take on the Warriors (2-6, 1-2 R6-1A) in a very big Region 6-1A matchup. In the early going, the Vikings got the ball to start the game and unfortunately went three and out. On the Warriors first possession, the Warriors were able to drive down the field with a long possession and get into the end zone but the extra point was blocked by Josh Warren and the Vikings trailed 6-0 after one. For most of the second quarter, the Vikings were able to keep the ball for over three quarters of the quarter and on second and goal at the one yard line, Senior Josh Warren ran up the middle and got into the end zone and Sophomore Marcos Woo nailed the extra point and the Vikings led 7-6. Late in the first half, the Warriors came back and scored quickly to get back ahead and after the two-point conversion, the Warriors led 14-7 at the half. In the second half, the Vikings had to kick off to McEwen but the Vikings defense were able to get a big stop when Sophomore Nate Mathis was able to tip the ball up and catch it with one hand to get PCHS the ball back. After a long drive, the Vikings turned it over on downs and McEwen got the ball back as they led 14-7 going to the fourth period. However, the Warriors gave the Vikings some of their own medicine as they started to just run the ball behind their bigger offensive line. The Warriors scored to make it 20-7 and missed the two-point conversion. The Vikings tried to come back but once again turned the ball over on downs and the Warriors scored one more time as the time expired as the Vikings fell 27-7. The Vikings host the Middleton Tigers (0-8) this Friday night at Viking Stadium for Senior Night. PCHS has a chance to win more games in a season since 2011 if they can win their last two games. The game Friday will be broadcast live on YouTube (WOPC) and on the radio at 101.3 fm. The NYX Pregame Show will start at 6:45 p.m. as I bring you a preview of both teams.
