The football team (2–2) squeaked out a close victory against the Governor Thomas Johnson Patriots (2–2), 10–7, on Friday night. Defense was the name of the game for both sides in the first quarter. The Vike’s defense started strong on their first drive with a red zone stand leading to a missed Thomas Johnson field goal.

Whitman’s defensive effort gave the offense a great field position, but with the Patriots’ goalline stand, the Vikings did not capitalize and get the ball into the endzone. In the second quarter, it was both offenses taking the initiative. The 0–0 stalemate was broken in the second quarter by Thomas Johnson with a long passing touchdown, giving them an early 7–0 lead.

Bigger, stronger, faster: In 2 years, Oakdale senior Thompson has transformed into an elite receiver
Two seasons ago, Hunter Thompson could still slip past a defense and the gaze of an onlooking crowd rather inconspicuously.
