The Vikings struck first when freshman quarterback Nash Morgan hit Zack Evans for a 45 yard touchdown. Jonah Artman kicked the successful extra point.

The Vikings wouldn’t score again until the middle of the second quarter when Morgan found Maddox Lynch and Jaylon Winters on quick passes that set up a short touchdown run by Eric Collins Jr.
The Rockets made their way into WC’s territory just shortly before halftime then Blossom came up with a huge sack. Neshoba settled for a field goal as the Vikings went up 14-3 at halftime.
Coming out of halftime, WC quickly moved the ball down the field with a nice run by Collins while Evans caught a 19-yard touchdown after shaking three defenders.
The Viking defense continued to make big play as Julien Demby blasted a ball carrier along with Dakesi Crump who grabbed multiple tackles.
Collins got the last score of the night on a seven yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to put the Vikings up 27-3.
