Viking Roll Over Pleasant Hill

It was reminiscent of the Blue Angels as Beau Erickson and the Siuslaw Vikings gave the crowd at Hans Petersen Field an air show last night beginning with the first play from scrimmage.  Erickson connected with Brayden Thornton for a 74 yard touchdown pass. It would be the first of 7 for the pair as old records went by the wayside in the lopsided 66-19 victory.  Erickson threw for over 500 yard and Thornton had over 300 yards receiving.  Vikings are on the road next Friday against Santiam Christian  who are 3-0 over the last three years against the Vikings.

Sailors vs Triangle Lake

The Mapleton sailors were on the court for senior night last night against Triangle Lake.  It was a duel match night with the Sailors taking both matches.  The first match 10-25, 19-25 and 22-25.  Freshman Morgan Milbrett had 2 kills and a block and senior Brier Shird had 3 aces and I kill.  In the second match the sailors won 18-25, 18-25 and 15-25.  Senior Opal Burruss had 1 kill and one ace and senior Micayla Flansberg had 4 aces.
