Sports :: VS freshmen win again, 22-6
· 9:24am October 7th, 2013
With the Vikings leading 16-6, the Decorah freshmen were attempting a fourth quarter rally when VS defensive back Lane Rowe added another interception to his 2013 stat sheet. He returned this one for a TD, putting the game out of reach. The Vikings won 22-6.
Coach Tony Stenberg summarized Friday's game, and the Vikings' 5-1 season:
We knew Decorah would have a good football team so we emphasized to our guys all week that we needed to out physical them and get off to a good start. We were able to do that from the very beginning with our offense taking the ball down the field on the opening drive and Wes Edwards running into the end zone to give us an 8-0 lead.
We were able to get another touchdown from Will Edwards before half to give us a 16-0 lead. Outside those two drives however, it was our defense that carried us to victory.
The Edwards brothers combined for a total of 24 tackles while the play of the game goes to Lane Rowe who intercepted a pass and ran it in for a touchdown late in the 4th quarter to make the final score 22-6.
Our defense has led us all season and a big part of that is our defensive coach, Logan Merchant, doing a nice job of making adjustments and coaching our guys from week to week. The guys trust his system and are coming out and being more physical than the guys across from them. Our defensive line play made a big jump forward this week which is going to be necessary for our future success.
