Game number six kicks off for the Gibraltar Vikings (3-2) at 1:00 pm Saturday when the Wausau Newman Fighting Cardinals (5-0) travel to Gibraltar High School. Following a heartbreaking 34-28 double overtime loss last week to the Gillett Tigers, Coach Scott Beimert and the Vikings look to get back on track.
Quarterback Trevor Reinhardt surpasses 1,100 yards passing last game and recorded four touchdown passes, improving his season total to 18. Alex Laughlin returns after missing last week’s game due to a family wedding, and defensive workhorse Max Maltby returns following a last minute scratch last week.
The Fighting Cardinals play an independent schedule but all five games this season have come against MONLPC opponents. No team has scored more than 18 points against Newman Catholic this season, leaving an uphill battle for the Vikings offense.
