Northern Vikings Wins First LKSSAA Senior Football Title

monday november 17, 2014

The Northern Viking Senior Football team remained undefeated on Saturday in the LKSSAA final after taking the title by a score of 24 - 21 over St. Pat's.

"Undefeated, however when you play someone three times you know you’re in trouble you got to be ready,"  head coach Craig Davies said after the game. "We weren’t surprised it was going to be a tight game."

In the regular season Northern downed St. Pat's 49-10 and 23-0.

Northern blocked St Pat's first field goal attempt then took it to it the other end on the next series of plays and never looked back. 

"We all stay together and played for one and not for ourselves," Quarterback Kobe Lundy said. "They were a lot more intense, they filled the gaps, they were out here to win today. We came out a little bit nervous but after the first touch down I think we stayed straight after that.

Lundy threw one touchdown pass in the game to wide receiver  Zach Doxilly.

St. Pats battled back and in the dying minutes added a touch down and a 2 point conversion to narrow the gap to 3.

 "Hats off to them they had a great game plan obvious right to the very end they played solid.  Hats off to our guys they played awesome." Davies said

The Vikings now advance to SWOSSAA and will meet a familiar opponent, the Herman Green Griffins from Windsor.  Hermman is ranked third in the country.

"Northern is not ranked. But that’s ok we like that," Davies said "We got it handed to us last year I think we are a little bit of a different team we’ll be able to give it a good go this year."

The stage is set for 5:00 pm on Friday November 21 at Norm Perry Park.
