Vikings break record with 90-44 victory

Posted: Wednesday, Sep 25th, 2013

GUERNSEY - It took four years, but the Guernsey-Sunrise Vikings did it.

According to Wyoming-Football.com, Guernsey-Sunrise's previous record for most points scored in a game is broken by one point in last week's victory over the H.E.M. Miners. The Vikings improved their record to 2-1 with a 90-44 win.

The previous record was 89 points, when the Guernsey-Sunrise Vikings won against the Ten Sleep Pioneers 89-37 in 2009.

The Vikes held the lead through the first quarter 8-7. H.E.M. caught up and overcame the Vikings with 25 points in the second quarter, making their lead 32-30 going into the half.

Guernsey-Sunrise caught up and then some after the third quarter, piling on 40 points to the Miners' six. The Miners would have one last touchdown before the end of the game, but the Vikes sealed the deal with 20 more points in the final quarter.

The Vikings hope to get a winning streak going as they head west to play the Farson-Eden Pronghorns. The 6-Man West foe has a 1-2 record with no conference wins. Farson-Eden and Guernsey-Sunrise faced off last year in week 5, resulting in a 45-0 Viking victory.
