Northeast looked as if they were on their way to an 0-3 start as the visiting Trojans led the game 6-0 in the second half, when the Vikings upped their play and got the win.
The Vikings’ defense would play well all game against Tara as Northeast allowed just 218-yards of total offense. Northeast ended the game plus four in the takeaway department as they picked off three passes and recovered a fumble as well.
One of the three passes intercepted turned out to be arguably the biggest play of the game. Jonathan Huggins came up with a huge interception in the third quarter and then returned it 68-yards for the touchdown. The Vikings did not convert on the PAT leaving the score tied at 6-6.
The score remained the same in the fourth quarter until the Vikings took the lead for good when Chris Williams scored on a nine-yard run to give Northeast a 12-6 lead late in the game.
Williams led the Vikings with 80-yards rushing on 16 carries. Northeast is now 1-2 on the season and the Vikings will try and even their mark next week as they travel to Tangipahoa to take on the 0-3 Sumner Cowboys.
