Sep 30, 2017

Two different offensive approaches went head-to-head Friday night as the Vikings relied entirely on its run game against pass-focused Seekonk. In the end, the Vikings prevailed with a 50-24 win that included several interceptions.

The game marked the team’s final one on its home turf during the regular season and had the Vikings in control the entire time. The Vikings are now 3-1 for the season.

Seekonk did come alive in the third quarter with a succession of quick touchdowns courtesy of its high-flying offense.

“Seekonk got it going in the third and you’ve got to give them credit,” said Vikings Head Coach Bob Lomp. “For awhile there, it looked like Sunday afternoon football.”

In the fourth, senior running back Isaac Nascimento showed of his speed, entering the end zone after a 90-yard run.

Senior tight end Legend Fernandes started the fourth quarter with an interception on Seekonk’s 10-yard line.

In the first half of the game, senior middle linebacker Nick Perry also made an interception.

The Vikings next take on Nauset Regional at Nauset Regional High School. Kick-off is at 6 p.m.
