BOISE – Cole Valley Christian built a 20-6 lead at halftime and then held off the Vikings down the stretch to post a 22-12 non-league win Friday at Bishop Kelly High School.

“We got into a bit of a hole early and played catch up,” said Viking Coach Jeff Aldred.

Aldred said the Vikings had their chances but couldn’t get the offense untracked.

“We had opportunities but didn’t execute. We had a couple of turnovers, we had a couple of drops, one dropped touchdown pass and honestly we were playing behind the eight ball the whole game,” said Aldred.

The Vikings also lost a key player – Kade Haueter . . .
