Seven Vikings Find End Zone in Saturday Blowout


From the opening kickoff, there was little that Evergreen Lutheran was going to be able to do to slow down Mossyrock, and the Vikings rolled their way to another 8-man victory, 82-26 on Saturday at Franklin Pierce High School in Tacoma.

Mossyrock came out of the coin toss planning to put its offense to work first, a notion that Keegan Kolb made moot when he took the kickoff to the house to start the rout immediately. From there, the Vikings found the end zone five more times in the first quarter alone, and went on to lead 60-6 at the intermission.

With the game one-sided, coach Eric Ollikainen got his subs in extra early. The Vikings’ eight first-half touchdowns came from seven different players; the only repeat came from Kolb, who also ran in a 42-yard score on his only rush of the day.

Nine Mossyrock players combined to run the ball 20 times for 312 yards and seven touchdowns. Sage Greisen led the way with 92 yards on just two carries, while Tyce Vigre, Marshall Brockway, Rachid Bougharsli, Alejandro Gonzalez, and Andrew Cournelius also all found the end zone on the ground.

Easton Kolb went 3 for 3 through the air for 30 yards, including a touchdown toss to Keegan Kolb to go along with his rushing and special teams scores. Vigre also got in on the scoring in multiple phases, taking a fumble back for a touchdown in the second quarter, throwing an 11-yard touchdown pass to Bougharsli in the fourth, and running his first and only carry of the night 50 yards for a third score.

Mossyrock (5-0) will get its biggest test of the season next week when it heads south to take on perennial power Naselle.
