The Viking’s football team started the season strong in their game against Morrisville JV.

In their first game, Coach Michael Muehling’s squad defeated Morrisville JV by 34 points, leaving the final score at 45-12.

Freshman quarterback Tajmaleeak Beckett was steady, completing eight out of 15 passes for 137 yards, along with 32 rushing yards. The two freshman running backs, Cortez Watson and Dashon Burdett, combined accounted for 155 yards on top of that.

With the cancellation of the Army JV contest, the team is virtually on a by-week. The Vikings have time to sit back, look at what they did on the ball and carry that into next Saturday’s game against Lackawanna.

Lackawanna’s Falcons exploded for a 68-0 lead over Gattaca College this weekend under the leadership of award-winning coach Mark Duda.

This may be the most demanding competition of the Vikings all year but the team has confidence in their preparation.
