The Tri-County Vikings football family had a tough start to the 2017 campaign, losing the first seven games of the season. They played strong in some games, struggled in others, but the result was always the same, a loss.

On Friday night, they travelled to Fremont to take on the Packers, the team they last defeated, also in Week 8 a season ago. Much like last season, they found success, leaving town with a 20-15 victory.

Tanner Ching was key in this victory for Tri-County as he took 15 carries and turned them into 108 yards. Ethan Rose also added 37 yards on 5 carries, as the Vikings found the most offensive success rushing the ball. Quarterback Bryce Hallman only completed one pass, a 41-yard strike.


With the win, Tri-County improves to 1-7 on the season, and next week they conclude by taking on Kent City, one of the state’s top rated teams. For Fremont, they now sit at 0-8 and will wrap up 2017 by hosting McBain.
