The last time the Vikings won a football game was almost two years ago on September 17, 2010 when they nipped Redan 7-6.
That was 17 games ago and two football seasons. The Vikings (1-1) ended that behind the play of offensive stars Nick Alexander and Bradley Earnest along with a defense led by Kyle Smith in a 28-14 victory over Dunwoody's Wildcats (0-2) on Friday night at Adams Stadium.
Dunwoody, now 0-1 in Region 6-AAAAA, did pull within 21-14 early in the fourth quarter. However, the Vikings answered with their final score to secure the game and improve to 1-0 in region play for the first time since that 2010 season.
The Wildcats will have a chance to log their first win of the season at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, but it won't be easy. Dunwoody plays an away game at Stephenson High School, a powerhouse team on an 11-game win streak.
