Giving up a late first-half touchdown to the host Suring Eagles gave the motivation the Gibraltar Vikings needed to take control of the game in a 43-24 victory Friday night on 105.1 The Viking.
The two teams traded scores for much of the first half thanks to Luke Steebs finding Alex Laughlin for a pair of second-quarter touchdowns from 10 and 43 yards out. After the Eagles surprised the Vikings with a 39-yard touchdown pass with just over a minute remaining, the Vikings had a trick up their sleeve ending with Laughlin finding Steebs in the endzone on double-reverse passing play. It was all Gibraltar in the second half, outscoring Suring 21-8 thanks to Brandon Stillman, Steebs, and Sam Lindenberg scoring on rushing touchdowns.
Gibraltar will play two consecutive Saturday matinees beginning this upcoming week against Laona-Wabeno in Fish Creek. You'll be able to catch that game on 105.1 The Viking beginning at 12:30 p.m. with the pre-game show followed by kickoff at 1 p.m.
