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 freshman basketball standout Braydon Thornton as this week’s Athlete of the Week. Coach Dylan Perry says Thornton was the only freshman in the Sky-Em league to receive all league votes and was selected to the Sky-Em all defensive team. In the Viking’s last two games Thornton averaged 15 points per game with 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 7 steals.
Honorable mention goes to sophomore Lindsey Long who scored 15 points in last week’s 56-51 win over Elmira.
