VALE – At the outset of the Vale-Homedale football game last Friday, it looked as if neither team would be able to score.

At halftime, fans heading for a hot dog saw the scoreboard reading 0-0.

Both teams found the end zone in the second half – the Trojans twice but Vale only once. The final score was 15-8 as Vale lost the non-conference contest.

The Trojans turned the ball over four times in the game, and the Vikings picked up 16 penalties totaling 121 yards.

The defense on both sides ruled the first half. After a quick three and out by the Viks, Homedale was driving on their first offensive series. However, an interception by Vale’s Andrew Collins interrupted the drive and the ball went back to the Viks . . .
