A "Senior Night Delight" As Vikings Beat Middleton 41-22

This past Friday night, the Vikings (3-6) took on the Middleton Tigers (0-8) on Senior Night here in Linden. All Senior cheerleaders, band members and football players were recognized for their unbelievable dedication to their teams these past four years. The Vikings were looking to win more than one home game for the first time in ten years. In the early going, things looked promising. Senior Bryce Milton took the opening kickoff all the way to the three-yard line to start things off. Then, Senior lineman Steven Martin took the handoff from Senior Josh Warren and barreled his way into the endzone and PCHS led 6-0 early. On the Tigers first possession, the Vikings gave up only one yard and the Tigers had to punt it back to the Vikings. On the next play, Senior Josh Jones took the ball and busted up the middle, breaking three tackles in the process and went 81-yards to the house for a touchdown and Sophomore Marcos Woo knocked down the extra point and the Vikings led 13-0. Later in the quarter, the Tigers were able to get some yards thanks to a couple busted plays and they turned that fortune into points and the Vikings led 13-6 after one. In the second quarter, the Vikings started to get plagued by penalties, so on third-down, Milton ran a reverse to the left side and broke one tackle for the touchdown and Woo’s kick was good again as the Vikings led 20-6 going to the half. In the second half, the Vikings offense started to get rolling early. PCHS took the second half kickoff all the way inside the five-yard line and Warren punched it in on the first play as Woo made the extra point and the Vikings led 27-6. Later on in the quarter, PCHS’ defense came up with a big stop and the Viking offense came back out and scored once again, thanks to Jones who ran the ball up the middle into the endzone and Woo’s kick was good and the Vikings led 34-6 after three. In the fourth quarter, the Vikings let some of their younger guys play and Middleton was able to score to make it 36-14. Then the Tigers got the ball back after a fumble and scooped the ball up in the endzone for a touchdown and with seven minutes to go, the Vikings and Tigers were in a 36-22 dog fight. However, on the next Viking possession, Junior Landon Smith took the hand off at the forty-yard line and took it to the end zone for the score and Woo went 5-for-6 on PAT’s and the Vikings came away with a 41-22 win. The Vikings will travel to Bruceton to take on the Tigers (1-8, 0-4 R6-1A) this Thursday, not Friday. The reason why is because of the referee shortage in the state, every team has to play at least one Thursday night game this year. So, the Vikings play Thursday, October 26th in Bruceton for a chance to win the most games in a season since 2011. You can watch the game on YouTube (WOPC) or on the radio at 101.3 FM. The NYX Pregame Show starts at 6:45 p.m. as I bring you a preview of both teams.
