Last night, the 8th Grade Geneva Viking Football team took to the turf of Geneva High School to battle previously unbeaten Yorkville for the Fox River Prairie Conference Title. 

The Vikings opened the game with a 70-yard drive, capped by a Nate Stempowski touchdown pass to Jacob Black. After the Viking defense forced a Yorkville punt, the offense scored a second first half touchdown when Stempowski connected with Charlie Winterhalter. Yorkville battled back, scoring just before half to pull within a score at the break. In the second half, Yorkville continued its comeback, scoring a second touchdown to pull within two points. That is as close as they would get. The defense forced a turnover on the first drive of the half. The Viking offense put together a sustained drive and finished with a rushing touchdown by Nate Stempowski. The defense hammered the final nail when Joey Costentino came up with a huge sack and Stempowski picked off Yorkville's final pass. The Vikings hoisted the conference trophy for the second year in a row--final score Geneva 24, Yorkville 14.
