Over in division two, pleasant valley faces chico for a second year in a row in the section finals.
Vikings coming off an almond bowl loss this year but that also happened last year before p-v avenged that loss by taking the title... poruing rain from the start... but that didn't stop the vikings from getting the ground game going.
Second quarter vikings lead 7-3 austin york taking the direct snap and he'll find a lane right up the middle and take this one right into the endzone making it 14-3 vikings... next panthers drive jake hamman feels the pressure, vikings force a fumble and nathan paddock makes an incredible play diving for the pick.
Take another look, no forward motion and paddock goes fully body extension... panthers ball on a two-minute drive, hamman with not much time and gets sacked here.
Vikings head into halftime up 17-3... third quarter, chico needing a play and abe del real delivers for them.
He snags this between two defenders... later in the drive, panthers on fourth down in the redzone, hamman tries finding del real but the vikings all over it.
Turnover on downs... and they'll take full advantage.
York plunges in scoring for the second time tonight.
Vikings avenge a second straight almond bowl loss with a section title winning 24-3... ad verbatim thanks
