The Jr. Vikings football team celebrated Homecoming with a 56-7 win over the SCITS Bluebombers.

The Vikings had the only score in the first quarter when Jon Vanderveen ran the ball in from 35 yards out. Tyler Annett converted the extra point. The second quarter saw the bulk of the scoring for the Vikings. Vanderveen scored first in the 2nd on a 40 yard catch and run, followed a few minutes later by Cole Boersma on a 15 yard run. At the 7:00 minute mark, Jace Felton caught a short pass from Carter Winberg and ran the ball 50 yards for a touchdown. With two minutes remaining in the first half, after Jon Vanderveen broke out for a 50 yard run, Carter Winberg kept the ball on a short run for a touchdown. Tyler Annett brought the half to a close with a 90 yard punt return for a TD. Annett made good on all extra point attempts in the 2nd quarter.

Vikings led 42-0 at halftime.

The Vikings struck twice in the second half, once on a huge, 80 yard run from Cole Boersma, and again on a 45 yard run by Jacob Packer. A two point conversion after a high snap, and a Tyler Annett extra point kick gave the Vikings a 56-0 lead going into the final quarter. The Bluebombers, who put up a strong fight for four quarters, made it into the endzone near the end of the final quarter, to make the final score Vikings 56, Bluebombers 7.

Special mention for the Vikings' Brett Baarschers who had a great game at the nose-guard spot, and to Chris Lachance who was a solid presence at the defensive end.

The Vikings are in action again on Thursday, October 23rd, at 3:00pm.
