EIGHT-PLAYER FOOTBALL: Vikings Shut Out Suring, Remain Undefeated

After being seconds away a week earlier from shutting out their nearby rival, Sevastopol, in a non-conference game, the Gibraltar Vikings did all the scoring Sept. 1 when they opened Peninsula Conference play at home with a 48-0 victory over Suring.

Rylan Caldecott ran for three touchdowns and also threw two scoring strikes to Braden Sitte and Braden Kita to account for five of the Vikings’ seven touchdowns.

Kita added two touchdown passes to Sitte and Giuseppe Mercier.

Up next for Gibraltar, which remains undefeated at 2-0 overall and 1-0 in conference play, is the team’s first road game of the season Sept. 10 at Algoma.
