Last Saturday the Livingston Vikings Pop Warner team held their season opener at Livingston High School and found the move to be a good one.After months of planning, the Livingston Vikings settled into their new league with a Falcon feather in their cap.
In a daylong contest of varying levels and age groups, the Pop Warner match-up at the varsity level seemed to prove that the Livingston Vikings made the right move to be included in a league that is made up of bigger towns in the Central Valley.
“We hoped that the Varsity would remain competitive in this new league, and tonight they’ve made a great start,” said Viking board member Junior Ayala.
The Vikings were the first to put points on the scoreboard with a touchback and also the last with an extra point. Atwater moved the ball, having several burst for yardage and multiple first downs, but the endzone eluded them.
Never miss a local story.
The final score was Vikings 38 – Falcons 0.
Next week, the Vikings will be on the road Saturday. Check the website at www.livingstonvikings.org for details.Reporter Kathy Hibma can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
