VALE – Plagued by injuries to key players, the Vale Vikings got down early and then put together a comeback bid only to fall short against Weiser 31-16 Friday night.

“In the second half, we sputtered a little bit offensively,” said Viking Coach Jeff Aldred.

Weiser built a 14-0 lead after the first quarter of the non-league contest but the Vikings (1-2) scored two touchdowns in the second quarter to grab a 16-14 . . .
