The Vikings Varsity football team dropped to 3-3 on the year after losing to Dallas A+ Academy by a score of 52-26. The Vikings were shorthanded for the game, but still managed to have quite a few bright spots. The team’s leading rusher, Draylyn D, carried the ball 13 times for 54 yards, and a TD. He also had a 60-yard kickoff return for a TD. Doyle capped off his day with a passing TD to Earl W. Senior captain, Evaristo C, had his first career TD on a 66-yard run in the 3rd quarter. Dami O, the team’s second leading rusher, led the defense with 11 tackles.
Despite the game, it was a positive trip for the football program. The team got to tour AT&T Stadium, which is home to the Dallas Cowboys. On Saturday, the Vikings attended the nationally televised Baylor vs. Texas Tech football game, which was also at AT&T Stadium. The Vikings hope to snap their three game losing streak this Friday, when they play at 4:30PM against KIPP Northeastern. Come out to Viking Field and show your support for your Varsity football team!
The middle school cross country team participated in the Dave Jantzen Invitational on Friday. This was the largest meet the Vikings have participated in so far this year. Dozens of the best private and public schools from all over the Houston area competed in this meet. The Vikings ran well. The 8th grade boys team finished in 3rd place and earned a plaque. Over 125 runners competed in the 8th grade boys division!
The Vikings are showing major signs of improvement. 13 out of the 19 7th and 8th grade runners set a new Personal Record (PR) for their 2 mile event. The 6th graders had their first experience running a 2 mile event. They did a great job with this distance and this will only make them stronger for their district championship distance of 1.5 miles.
The Vikings are back in action this Saturday, as the team competes in the Faith West Hills cross country meet. Come support your Viking runners!
The middle school football team lost a tough game against the Northside Lions 43-33. The Vikings were lead by quarterback Zach I, who threw four touchdowns and over 250 yards. Daniel M contributed with two touchdowns, Mac B caught one, and Earving W had a fifty yard touchdown run. Unfortunately, the offense wasn’t enough to stop the Lions as they got a late safety and returned the following kick off to take the lead and seal the win. There were a lot of positives to take away from this fantastic game. Everyone stepped up and played well. The Vikings next game is Oct. 6th and River Oaks Baptist.
The Varsity football team travels to Dallas, Texas tomorrow for their game against Dallas A+ Academy. The Vikings are coming off two gut-wrenching losses at home, but remain focused on this week’s opponent. “The mark of a great player is in his ability to come back. The great champions have all come back from defeat.” Coach Bagot feels like his team is poised to do just that. The team has had a good week of practice in preparation for their game on Friday. The Vikings are hungry for a win.
After Friday’s game, the team will enjoy Saturday’s college football matchup between the Baylor Bears and the Texas Tech Red Raiders at Cowboys Stadium. This trip couldn’t have come at a better time for the Vikings squad.
The Vikings will be back at home next week, as the team is set to play KIPP Northeastern. Kick off for that game is scheduled for 5:00pm on Viking Field. Good luck to our boys this weekend! Go Vikings!
