The South Tahoe Jr. Pee Wees opened the Pop Warner season with a hard-fought 19-7 victory in Sparks, Nev. against the Sparks Saints on Friday.

After a difficult preseason, with cancelled games, practices and scrimmages due to smoke and other weather issues, the South Tahoe Pee Wees were finally able to play football. And they didn’t disappoint.

Under the guidance of Head coach Ken Robbins, the Jr. Pee Wees came prepared to take on the Saints. Jake Tarwater opened the scoring for the Vikings on a 40-yard touchdown run. Mason Hage followed up with a 35-yard touchdown run. Mason then put the game out of reach with a 20-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Smiley.

The Vikings had outstanding performances on our defensive line led by Derek Robbins, Logan Field, Reece O’Keefe and Giovanni Morales.

The South Tahoe Jr. Pee Wees return to Sparks on Saturday to take on Reno South.
