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.

McEwen's Size Too Much For Vikings

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.

Vikings Struggle with Defending State Champs; Falling 57-7

The Perry County Vikings (2-5, 0-3 R6-1A) took on the reigning Class 1A State Champion and #4 ranked McKenzie Rebels (6-1, 3-0 R6-1A) this passed Friday night at Viking Stadium. The Rebels were as good as advertised as they aired it out all night long as their first score was from 67-yards out and the two-point conversion was good and it was 8-0 early. The Vikings offense kept going backwards with the bigger and more physical Rebels defense putting on a show. The Rebels scored once again and led 15-0 but the Vikings offense continued to fight as they were able to get to mid-field but could not get much closer. The Rebels again scored to make it 22-0 and the Vikings offense went three and out before the Rebels put up another score right before the end of the quarter to make it 29-0 after one. In the second, it was much of the same. The Vikings turned the ball over as Senior Josh Warren threw his second interception of the season and the Rebels were in business. On the next snap, they threw the ball 45-yards to make it 36-0. After two more scores, the Vikings were down 50-0 at the break. But in the third quarter, they were able to get some fireworks going as Warren found Junior Landon Smith cutting through the middle of the field in stride as he ran it in from 37-yards out and Sophomore Marcos Woo made the extra point to put the Vikings on the board 50-7. The Rebels scored one more time before the end of the game to put it out of reach as the Vikings fell 57-7.

The Vikings are off this week as they are on fall break but they will be back next Friday night as they travel to McEwen to take on the Warriors at 7:00 p.m. The game will be broadcast live on YouTube (WOPC) and on wopclive.com. The NYX Pregame Show will start at 6:45 p.m. as I bring you a preview of both teams.
