Sonny Tupua carried the ball eight times for 145 yards and two touchdowns, plus caught a 45-yard touchdown pass as the Siuslaw Vikings downed the Brookings-Harbor Bruins 49-13 Thursday night. The Vikings led 42-7 at the half and were able to move the ball at will against the Bruins, accumulating just under 400 yards of offense in the first half. Neal Larson rushed for 34 yards on eight carries, but scored twice for Siuslaw. The Vikings remain undefeated with a 3-0 Far West League record, 6-0 overall.
Athlete of the Week
The Sports Club, the Siuslaw News and Coast Radio Sports congratulate Brea Blankenship as this week’s Athlete of the Week. Brea’s personal record best of 19:41 flat in the 5000 meter run in the Warner Pacific XC Classic helped propel the Viking Ladies to a first place finish this past weekend trimming 27 seconds from her previous start and 25.5 seconds from her previous personal best.
Honorable Mention goes to Mia Collins who had 10 kills, 9 digs and a block last week’s win against Elmira.
