The Bell Remains Safe at Death Valley

For the sixth year in a row, The Bell stays home in the comforting hands of the Death Valley Road Show.

After a sluggish start, the Vikings banded together to shut out the defending TRC Champions in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarters, and only allowing one score in the 1st. Deming and Ferverda had their short lived moment in the first quarter as Deming rushed into the endzone on a 44 yard run. Ferverda followed it up with the 3 yard conversion. It was all Valley after that as Senior QB Cody Eastgate found Senior Wade “Drago” Jones on a 36 yard pass shortly after. Senior Nate Parter tied it up at 8 with the 2pt conversion. Later in the 1st, Parker put in a workout on an 82 yard rushing touchdown followed up by a Gage Overbey PAT to make 15-8 at the end of the 1st quarter.

Gage Overbey started the scoring the 2nd quarter with a 42 yard Field Goal. The 2nd quarter was also another showcase for Nate Parker as he caught a 48 yard touchdown pass from Eastgate followed by Overbey’s PAT. Valley led the Zebras 25-8 at the half.

The 3rd quarter was a three man clinic as Eastgate found Parker on a 17 yard pass to make it 32-8 after the Overbey PAT. Eastgate then tossed it Jones on a 45 yard pass to make it 39-8 at the end of the third following Overbey’s PAT. That would end up being the final score as the Death Valley Wrecking Crew would not let the Zebras get another chance to score.

Valley was able to do it all tonight as the Vikings had over 200 yards in both passing and rushing. Nate Parker, Brandon Stiles, Wes Parker, Nate Engstrand, Grady Moriarty, and Brock Derf all contributed to 242 total rushing yards. Nate Parker, Wade “Drago” Jones, and Landon Durkes were the three pass catchers that Eastgate had in his toolbox putting up 256 total passing yards for an overall total of 498 yards.

Rochester couldn’t even get half of that as the Wrecking Crew Defense held the Zebras to 235 total yards. The Zebras gave up two fumbles and was 2 for 8 on 3rd down and 1 for 6 on 4th down.

The Vikings begin their four game home stretch as they host Twin Lakes at Smith-Bibler Memorial Field starting at 7:00 PM.
