From the Sports Desk:

Last night, the 7th grade Viking football team traveled to St. Charles Thompson for its season opener. Although the skies were dark and storms threatened, the Vikings had no trouble handling the Thunder. Nate Stempowski's touchdown run in the first quarter set the tone and Charlie Winterhalter added two more. Those points were all the Vikings needed, as an incredible team defensive effort led by Rocco DiLeonardi and Jacob Black blanked the Thunder offense on the way to a 22-0 victory.

The 8th grade football team improved their level of play, and persevered through the torrential downpour, but still came up short by losing to St. Charles Thompson last night by a score of 34-0.

The Vikings play at home next Tuesday vs Yorkville.
