Multiple Teams · Vikings Win Big on Senior Night!


The Rowan County Vikings earned a big victory over the East Carter Raiders on Friday Night 42-6.  The Vikings not only celebrated Senior Night, they also opened the door to a 4A State Playoff birth.  The Vikings 5-5 overall and 2-3 in district play, now sit and wait to hear the final word on whether they are in or out of the State Playoffs.  It appears they are in,  but no official announcement until next weeks games are played.

Back to the action on Friday Night.. The Vikings defense allowed an early Raider touchdown, but then closed the gates allowing the Raiders only 34 yards of total offense for the night!  The Vikings held East Carter to 24 rushing yards and 10 passing yards.  In the meantime the Vikings offense dominated, as they put together 494 total yards for night.  The Vikings dominated the ground game as usual as they rushed for 412 yards on 49 carries.  The Vikings also put up 82 yards through the air scoring 2 passing TDs when QB Devin Helvey hit Junior WR Brad Thomas for back to back scores.

The Vikings are scheduled off this week, as they  wait to hear final word on their 4A State Playoff birth.
