The Vikings put together a long drive towards the end of the 3rd quarter, capped off with an Andrew Bradshaw run into the endzone from 20 yards out and another Barnes extra point.  Noah McLean added another major in the closing minutes of the third.  Barnes booted the extra point.  The Colts added a major at the 10:00 minute mark of the 4th quarter and added to the score with a two point conversion. The Vikings responded with Alkinani taking the ball 75 yards for a major.  Barnes converted the extra point. After a long drive nearing the end of the game, the Vikings settled for a field goal.  The Colts put 6 more points on the board on a long pass, but were stopped on the two point conversion attempt.
