VICTOR — Charlo quarterback Michael Delaney was a force to be reckoned with Saturday afternoon as the 3-0 Vikings forced Victor’s Pirates to walk the plank in a 46-16 judgment.

Charlo was first on the board as Delaney ran for three touchdowns in the second quarter, covering 10, 50 and 6 yards respectively before coming back from halftime to hit Landers Smith with a 30-yard toss good for another TD. Smith scored again on a 2-yard run, and Brady Fryberger and Jared Doty also scored on 12 and 11-yard runs.

Doty also chipped in two interceptions.

The Vikings will celebrate homecoming on Friday when they host district rival Arlee for a 7 p.m. kickoff.
