Despite the in-your-jersey defense by N-K’s Kael Julseth, the Eagles completed this pass play, one of the few successful plays the home team had against the stingy Vikings defense. Julseth played brilliantly in the defensive backfield, collecting 4.5 tackles in just two quarters of play in the 69-8 win.

The Eagles, who haven’t played a varsity schedule in a few years, seemed out-matched from the start, when...

The Harris-Lake Park Wolves took a beating from the Vikings last season, suffering an embarrassing 26-0 loss in front of their home fans, held to -38 yards rushing and a measly 37 yards through the air. A different Wolves team took the field against Northwood-Kensett last Friday night in...
