7 Death Valley Road Show defeats #2 West Lafayette 35 – 13

In one of the biggest games in Death Valley history, the Vikings stepped up to the task and defeated the #2 team in 3A, West Lafayette. It was a Wrecking Crew showcase as the Red Devils were held to only 63 rushing yards and 74 passing yards for a total of 137 yards. And another stat to show how dominate the Wrecking Crew was, the held the #2 team in 3A to only 1 first down. Nate Parker also had himself an interception and a forced fumble that was picked up by Wade “Drago” Jones. And to add even more excitement on the defensive side of the ball, Dalton Alber had a scoop and score.

The Red Devils quickly felt the power of Death Valley as the Vikings held them to a quick three and out. With excellent field position after the punt, the Vikings marched down the field and got their first score of the game off a Nate Parker 1 yard rush followed by the Gage Overbey PAT to make it a quick 7-0. But the Wrecking Crew wanted more. On the Red Devils very next offensive play, Kyler Johnson made his way to the quarterback, knocking the ball loose, where Dalton Alber found himself in prime position for the scoop and score. Overbey’s PAT made it 14-0 with 7 minutes to go in the 1st.

The 2nd quarter slowed things down just a little bit but Nate Parker was still able to find the endzone on a three yard rush with Overbey getting the PAT to make it 21-0. In the last two minutes of the game, the Red Devils had to dig very deep into their playbook to get a score in before the half making it 21-6.

After a scoreless 3rd quarter, the Vikings put their foot back on the gas and it only took three plays for the Vikings to find the endzone again thanks to a 12 yard run from Brandon Stiles. Overbey knocked in the PAT to make it 28-6. After a defensive score from the Red Devils following a fumble, the Vikings took control of the clock for the rest of the game. This eventually led to Nate Parker getting his third touchdown of the night on a 3 yard carry and Overbey put the finishing touches on a 35-13 victory over #2 West Lafayette.

Overall the Vikings had a very successful night. With major thanks to the offensive line, the Vikings were able to put up 371 rushing yards on 61 carries.
