It has been a year since a thrilling comeback for the Gibraltar Vikings came up just short in double overtime, and they hope to make amends Friday night when they host Gillett Tigers on 105.1 The Viking. Last year, the Vikings came back from two touchdowns to tie the game to force overtime, before falling in extra frames.
The Vikings are coming off another impressive offensive showing last week, defeating Lena/STA 50-14. Trevor Reinhardt once again led the way in the passing game while Alex Laughlin and Andras Szakala did their own damage coming out of the backfield. As has been the case for most teams this season, the Tigers struggled to get on the scoreboard in their 47-6 drubbing by Wausau Newman Catholic last Friday. Bo Krueger continues to be a one-man wrecking crew, rushing for 157 yards on 21 carries and the Tigers’ lone touchdown.
Tim Kowols will have the call from Fish Creek beginning at 6:30 p.m. followed by the kickoff at 7 p.m.
