   The Varsity Football Team had a gut check this week. The team was coming off two straight losses that eliminated them from the playoffs and was trailing Friday by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter at Dixie Hollins. The final 12 minutes showed just how resilient the Vikings are as the team scored 24 unanswered points to defeat the Rebels, 30-19. Northeast improves to 5-2 on the season.

“I love coaching this group of kids,” Head Coach Jeremy Frioud said. “They are a group of fighters.”

The game got off to a rough start as Dixie took the opening drive in for a touchdown and scored another touchdown in the second quarter. the offense couldn’t get going in the 1st half.  Senior linebacker Cam Bradley had to do double duty in the 1st half as the quarterback. The offense had two touchdowns called back on holding calls and went into the half down 12-0. The second half, the comeback began as Freshman Khaishef Edwards returned a kickoff for a touchdown. Dixie answered with a score to make it 19-6 going into the 4th quarter.  The offense came alive in the 4th quarter, led by Senior Shaquan Johnson, who rushed for 265 yards. Sophomore Quarterback Keon Gulley connected on throws to Senior Mark Schrage and Junior Anderson Williams. The defense stepped up with back to back turnovers which both led to Viking touchdowns and sealing the game for Northeast.

The Vikings will play Largo for Homecoming this Friday Night.
