The Guernsey-Sunrise Viking football team rolled through the regular season with an 8-0 record, winning by an average of 50 points per game. That included a forfeit from Rock River that counted as a 1-0 win. The closest contest was in week five in Hanna when the Vikings defeated the Miners by a score of 26 to 16.
In the first two rounds of the play-offs, the Vikings defeated Farson 65-8 and Snake River by a score of 72-40. That set the stage for a rematch with their first week opponent, Dubois, a team they defeated 60-12 earlier. In a chilly War Memorial Stadium on the campus of the University of Wyoming last Friday, the Vikings jumped out to a 20-8 first quarter lead and never looked back. They won the 1A 6-man football state championship 80 to 30 over the Rams. Led by Brady Esquibel's 242 yards on the ground on 16 carries, the Vikings dominated the Rams with 463 yards total offense compared to 312 for the Rams. Defensively, Austin Quinn led the Guernsey-Sunrise team with 15 total tackles. The Guernsey-Sunrise Vikings have won the 6-man state championship twice in the modern era of the sport in Wyoming.Category: Football
