Vikings football returns to home field

Apr 19, 2021

The Wareham Vikings returned to the home turf on Sunday for the first time since 2019.

The team played a tough game against Seekonk, losing 42-8, but Coach Fran Cass said the team was just happy to be back playing.

“We’re still enjoying ourselves — myself, the kids, and the staff,” Cass said.

The team is small this year, so two injuries early in the game, suffered by the starting quarterback and wide receiver, made it a tough fight.

“It was a beautiful day,” Cass said, adding that Seekonk’s team is the best in the league.

The first quarter went well, he said, before the team’s injuries.

Cass said Henry Jones played especially well before his injury.

The team’s next game is yet to be scheduled.
