Defense leads freshmen to victory

Special to the Tribune

The South Tahoe freshmen football team traveled four hours to Winnemucca, Nev., to face the Lowry Buckaroos on Thursday Night.

The Vikings came home with a 34-14 victory behind a strong defense that forced three fumbles and two interceptions. A strong offensive line also contributed to the win, springing running backs Jacob Bernal and Noah Jackson.

Quarterback Tommy Cefalu threw for more than 150 yards and one touchdown to wide receiver Jake Miller. Jacob Bernal scored three touchdowns on runs and Noah Jackson took a handoff, cutback against an aggressive blitz and raced down the sideline for a 45-yard touchdown run.

UP NEXT: The Vikings' freshman take their two game winning streak (2-1) into a game on Thursday night in Reno versus Wooster High School.

South Tahoe 14,6,6,8—34
