Keys for North Union

Don’t let Vikes QB Jax Harville unleash his aerial onslaught. Harville has put the ball up 89 times this fall.

Take advantage of any River Valley mistakes, miscues the Vikes are battling to eliminate.

A win here would be a solid start to conference play in a very tough Red Division.

Keys for River Valley

Stopping Wildcats RB Nate Hammons would be a good start. Hammons has more than 300 yards rushing and has scored six touchdowns this season.

Nonetheless, don’t put all of the eggs in Hammons’ basket. ‘Cats can also throw the ball accurately with QB Tim Davis when they have to.

Revenge factor. This is one of the games which kept the Vikings just out of the playoffs a year ago.

Stat of the week

After this game last year which North Union won, River Valley went 5-1 while North Union was only 2-4.
