From the Sports Desk:

The 8th grade football team lost last night to a very good team from St. Charles Wredling. The highlights were two scores, a 50 yard scoring pass from Mason Luker to Matt Fregly for the teams’ first score of the night and a scoring run of 40 yards by Will Szumny in the third quarter. 

Your 7th grade Geneva Vikings had their home opener against The Wredling Redhawks yesterday. The Vikings came out of the gate ready to grind. They held their own on defense and only gave up 8 points. Jacob Black set the tone with a couple of big hits that made the Redhawks question why they came. Colin Sprague had an interception that was almost returned for a touchdown. On the offensive side of the ball, Nate Stempowski channeled his inner Michael Vick and ran all over the defense and scored a couple of touchdowns. Charlie Winterhalter didn’t disappoint either because he came up big with a hand full of touchdowns himself. None of this would have been possible without the grind of the offensive line. Rocco Delinardi converted on 4 of 4 two point conversions that added 8 points to the Vikings score. Tristen Spencer got to show a little razzle-dazzle and ran a touchdown from 10 yards out. Patrick Turner had a big time 4th down completion to Michael Torrence that sealed the game for your 7th grade Vikings. The Vikings put up 44 to Wredling’s 8 and they improved their conference record to 3-0. The Vikings are 4-0 overall and look to keep up with their winning season next Tuesday against St. Pats at home. So, come on out and support your Vikings by wearing blue next Tuesday. Be The Hammer!!
