The Viks really gave their fans something to cheer about Friday evening, Oct. 6 as the La Jolla High School Vikings football trounced University City 56-7.

La Jolla’s varsity team offense came alive scoring seven rushing touchdowns to go along with a 95-yard kickoff return for another score.

After University City Centurions put seven points on the board making the score 14-7, La Jolla Vikings ran back the ensuing kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown, giving them a 21-7 advantage. After that it was all La Jolla rolling up 35 straight points and never looking back.

Matt Rosenberg, a member of the coaching staff, said he thought the offensive line played pretty well and took charge early in the game. The offense piled up 245 yards rushing, which is 133 more than the team’s average. Rosenberg was happy to report that three sophomores scored and that several running backs shared the ball with none gaining more than 100 yards.

The Viks dominated possession having to punt only once. This allowed the defense to be fresh thus allowing UC High only seven points.

Rosenberg said the future looks bright with several sophomores and juniors returning next year who will have one more year of experience. The Junior Varsity team is starting to play well, too, and will provide additional talent for next season.

Friday, Oct. 19, the Vikings travel to Mission Bay at 3 p.m. Let’s give our guys the support they deserve and show our appreciation for all their hard work by showing up and making lots of noise!
