The Mounties enter the game with a 10-2 record, having won their last seven games. They are led by a strong senior class, including quarterback Will Woodall, running back Nathan Boyer, and linebacker Drew Howell. Woodall has thrown for over 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns this season, while Boyer has rushed for over 1,500 yards and 20 touchdowns. Howell is the team’s leading tackler with over 100 stops.
The Vikings are also 10-2 on the season and have won their last eight games. They are led by a balanced offense and a stingy defense. Junior running back Jed Galvin has rushed for over 1,800 yards and 25 touchdowns this season, while senior wide receiver Liam Stone has caught for over 600 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Vikings’ defense is led by senior linebacker Zeb Blaylock, who has over 100 tackles and five sacks this season.
This game is a toss-up, and it should be a close one. The Mounties have the more experienced team, but the Vikings have the more explosive offense. Both teams have strong defenses, so it could come down to which team makes the fewest mistakes. I’m going to say that the Mounties will edge out the Vikings in a close one, 24-21.
