Standing on the same sideline only a few years ago, the Gibraltar Vikings and Sevastopol Pioneers will battle for Northern Door bragging rights in Fish Creek and on 105.1 MORE FM Friday night.
The Vikings are coming off an impressive victory after losing out on a traditional Homecoming matchup due to a forfeit and two consecutive losses. Quarterback Trevor Reinhardt threw for five touchdowns in a 46-30 romp over the host Wausaukee Rangers.
The Pioneers clinched the conference title in their last game, steamrolling Gillett 65-0 in Institute. The two-headed monster of Ethan Kroll and Jacob Welsing combined for over 200 yards rushing and six total touchdowns.
While Gibraltar is not eligible for this year’s WIAA Jamboree, Sevastopol is looking to improve their seeding for their third straight trip to the annual 8-man football showcase held in Wausau. Baxter Colburn and Tim Kowols will have the call on 105.1 MORE FM beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame show followed by kick-off at 7 p.m.
