The Whitehall Vikings pitched a shutout on Friday night, taking down WMC foe North Muskegon. Their offense stepped up to the plate as well, delivering a 33-0 victory.
In the first quarter, the special teams provided all of the points total. Jack McDowell booted a field goal of 26 yards to give Whitehall an early edge. This special teams impact would carry to the second quarter as well, with McDowell’s 28-yard field goal giving the Vikings a lead of 6-0. Alec Pruett got the offense rolling with his 7-yard touchdown run, pushing the lead to 13-0 at halftime.
The second half saw more of the same for Whitehall. Nate Bolley got the offense rolling with a 44-yard sprint to the end zone. Later in the third quarter, Kyle Stratton kept the football and raced 41 yards to the end zone. In the fourth quarter, Nate Bolley was back in the end zone, this time after a 14-yard scamper.
Whitehall outgained North Muskegon 372-70. The Vikings rushed for 307 of their 372 yards. Alec Pruett turned his 21 carries into nearly half of that rushing attack, 159 yards. Nate Bolley added 81 yards, while Kyle Stratton chipped in 67.
Next week, Whitehall steps out of WMC play to take on Ludington in a non-league battle. North Muskegon will continue the conference gauntlet against Oakridge.
