Viking football dominance continues
CHARLO – Viking fans are some of the loudest bunch out there, and they deserve to let their screams be heard. The Vikings football team blasted past the big hurdle of quarterfinals and are heading to state semi-finals.
On Saturday, the Vikings hosted Culbertson-Bainville in the state quarterfinal game, showing no mercy as they defeated the Cowboys 60-14.
There was just no holding back QB Michael Delaney with five touchdown passes totaling 139 yards.
The score didn’t accurately reflect how hard it was out there, according to 11th year Head Coach Mike Krahn.
“It was a big one,” Krahn said about the win. “The defense played well with big stops.”
This is the first time in 12 years that the Vikings have made it past the quarterfinals. With this win the Vikings have not only fulfilled the first of one of their goals for the season, but have also secured the home field advantage as they host Ennis on Saturday. Ennis is undefeated and has proven to be a force in the past.
“Ennis is a tall order,” Krahn said. “They score a lot of points and have been shutting people out.”
With that the Vikings are pumped and ready to continue the battle. “There’s a lot on the line,” Krahn said. “But we’re looking forward to it. It’s exciting.”
If the Vikings shuffle past Ennis this weekend they will secure their spot in the State Championship game to be played at home in front of their ever-loyal fans.
