Marching Vikings Place Second in Program's First Competition

The Perry County Marching Vikings, led by Ms. Marlana Nyholt-Overbay, traveled to Trousdale County High School to compete in the Yellow Jacket Invitational. The kids left really excited and nervous but they return home with four trophies and a plaque from their first competition in program history. The band won second place in overall band, second place in percussion, second place in guard, and second place in drum major. The judges acknowledged the band with the Up and Coming award as a band to watch out for in the future. Ms. Marlana and the band want to thank everyone who has helped along the way as the kids continue to rock on.

Tale of Two Halves: Vikings Fall 42-21 in Red Boiling Springs

The Perry County Vikings (2-4) traveled three hours to Red Boiling Springs just east of Lafayette in Macon County this past Friday night. The Bulldogs (4-2) historically have had some hard times in football but their program has been getting better just like the Vikings have. In this game, this was a tale of two halves.

In the first quarter, the Vikings kicked it off to the Bulldogs and on the second play of the game, RBS scored first on a 41-yard pitch and catch to make it 7-0. The Vikings battled back as Senior Josh Warren and classmate Luke Lindberg connected on a 39-yard pass and Sophomore Marcos Woo knocked down the extra point as the Vikings tied things up 7-7. However, the Bulldogs came back again on fourth down as the quarterback dumped it off to the running back and he took it 43-yards to the house to make it 14-7 RBS after one. In the second quarter, PCHS got a gift from RBS as they tried to punt after the defense came away with a three and out. RBS punter couldn’t hang on to the ball and Junior Zane Noel was able to pounce on him for a big loss and the Vikings had the ball first and goal at the 5-yard line. Warren ran the ball to the one but classmate Josh Jones put it in from the one and then PCHS went for two, this time Warren put it in and it was 15-14 Vikings. Again, back came the Bulldogs as their quarterback found an open receiver for a 52-yard pass and the Bulldogs went for two to make it 22-15 with about three minutes remaining. The Vikings got the ball at the Bulldog 30-yard line, Warren ran a designed quarterback keeper and broke three tackles and took it in for a 30-yard touchdown and the extra point was blocked but at the half, the Vikings trailed 22-21. In the second half, however, the Bulldogs came out firing after they celebrated Senior night. The Vikings offense could not get anything going as the quarterback for RBS is also a linebacker, he tipped Warren’s pass up to himself and ran it back for a 25-yard pick six to make it 28-21. Then a big 40-yard touchdown pass got it 35-21 going to the fourth quarter. The Vikings kept fighting but couldn’t get any more points on the board as the Bulldogs scored from 40 yards out with minutes to spare as the Vikings fell 42-21.
The Vikings host the reigning Class 1A State Champion McKenzie Rebels (5-1, 2-0 Region 6-1A) this Friday night at Viking Stadium starting at 7:00 p.m. The NYX Pregame Show starts at 6:45 p.m. as I bring you a preview of both teams.

Vikings Round Up Rebels on Homecoming 37-7

The Perry County Vikings (2-3) took on the Stewart County Rebels (0-5) from Class 3A this past Friday night. It was Homecoming, teachers got pied in the face, there was a beauty pageant for the senior football players, there was games and activities, then a big parade going through town. Then before the game, we had ladies dressed in their best representing each class as they come on to the field with old sports cars, (David Weatherly had the best), and jacked up trucks. But when it was time for kickoff, the festivities were just beginning.

In the early going, the Rebels got the ball to start the game, but the Vikings defense stood tall as they made the Rebels turn the ball over on downs. On the Vikings first possession, they drove the ball to the 29-yard line and Senior Josh Jones took the handoff 29-yards for a Viking touchdown. Sophomore Marcos Woo tacked on the extra point and the Vikings led 7-0. On the next Rebels possession, the Vikings defense once again stood their ground, as they were able to make the visitors from Dover punt. After a couple penalties on the Vikings, the ball was placed all the way to the three-yard line. On the next play, Senior Luke Lindberg broke through the middle of the line of scrimmage and took the handoff 97-yards for another PCHS touchdown. Once again, Woo tacked on the extra point and the Vikings led 14-0 after one. In the second quarter, the Rebels started to drive the football down the field, but again the PCHS defense did not let them past the 40-yard line as the Rebels had to punt again.

 

The Vikings were able to get in the end zone one more time as Senior Josh Warren found classmate Bryce Milton in the flat and Milton took it 38-yards for the touchdown and Woo went 3-for-3 on extra points and the Vikings led 21-0 at the half. In the second half, it was much of the same. Sophomore running back Aiden Flowers got the snap at the one-yard line and put it in for the touchdown and Woo once again knocked down the extra point as the Vikings led 28-0. The Rebels got into Viking territory and on fourth down, the Rebels did a quick pass that caught the Vikings off guard and scored their first and only points of the game as the extra point was good and after the third it was 28-7 Vikings. In the fourth, PCHS marched down the field again, this time on fourth-down as well, Warren found Lindberg cutting in the middle of the Rebels defense as he juked to his left, then right and ran it in for a 33-yard touchdown.

 

Once again Woo was magnificent as he ended the night going 5-for-5 on extra points as the Vikings led 35-7. Then on the next Rebels possession, they had the ball at their own 7-yard line, Warren busted through the line of scrimmage and sacked the quarterback in the endzone for a Safety and that would do it as the Vikings came away with a 37-7 Homecoming victory.

VIkings Fall Short on the Road 47-14

The Perry County Vikings (1-3, 0-2 R6-1A) traveled to Atwood this passed Friday night to take
on the West Carroll War Eagles (2-1, 1-0 R6-1A) in a big Region 6-1A matchup. In the early
going, the War Eagles struck first as their running back found a hole on the right side of the
defense and took it in for the touchdown. The two-point conversion was good and the War
Eagles led 8-0. After the Vikings went three and out, the War Eagles again had a very successful
drive that ended in points as their running back took it in from 13-yards out. The two-point
conversion failed but the Vikings trailed 14-0 in the second quarter. About midway through,
Junior running back Zane Noel, took the handoff and looked to be stuffed at the line, however, he
burst through the line of scrimmage and looked to be heading for the end zone but got tripped up
right at the five-yard line. However, Senior Josh Warren took the ball into the end zone but the
extra point wasn’t good but now the score was 14-6 West Carroll. On the very next play from
scrimmage after the kickoff, the quarterback looked left and was trying to get the ball to his
receiver on a shovel pass. However, Junior Landon Smith noticed it and was able to catch the
ball and take it back 20-yards for the touchdown. The two-point conversion was good and just
like that with two minutes left in the first half, the Vikings tied things up 14-14. Then on the War
Eagles ensuing possession, they had plenty of time to score. The running back took off on third
down and scored from 30-yards out and the two point conversion was good and the War Eagles
led 22-14 at the half. The Vikings got the ball to start the second half off but the War Eagles
game plan worked to perfection as they outscored the Vikings 25-0 in the second half and the
Vikings lost 47-14.
The Vikings take on the Stewart County Rebels (0-4) this Friday night starting at 7:00 p.m. at
Viking Stadium. The NYX Pregame Show starts at 6:45 p.m. and you can listen to it on
