The Whitehall Vikings scored early and often in their 68-0 victory against WMC foe Shelby on Friday night. Eight first half touchdowns created an insurmountable lead, with a running clock limiting excess after the break.

Kyle Stratton got things started with a quarterback keeper, as his 5-yard run gave the Vikings a 7-0 edge. After recording a defensive stop near the 35, Nate Bolley returned the punt 65 yards to the end zone. Red Watson would score the final touchdown of the quarter on a pass from Stratton. A lone missed extra point left the score 2o-0 Whitehall.

The second quarter saw more of the same for Whitehall. First, Alec Pruett reeled off a 60-yard sprint to the end zone. Later, Red Watson intercepts a pass for a touchdown. Nate Bolley showed his running back abilities with his 34-yard run to the end zone. The final score was an Alec Pruett 50-yard dart through the teeth of the Shelby defense, extending the lead to 54-0 in favor of Whitehall.

With the running clock in effect, Whitehall breezed through the second half. Lukas Palmer scored the lone third quarter touchdown on a 37-yard run. Jackson Cook rounded out the scoring with a 56-yard score.

Whitehall now sits at 3-1 on the year and 2-1 in the WMC. They will face off against North Muskegon next week. Shelby moves to 0-4 and 0-3 in the WMC. The Tigers will square off against Mason County Central next Friday.
