Vikings scuttle Nyssa’s vaunted offensive attack

NYSSA - Their record plus local prep sports wisdom ruled that maybe this year the Vale Viking football team wasn’t in the same category as those storied squads of the past.

The Vikings walked onto the Nyssa football field Friday night for one of the more anticipated grid contests in a while with a 2-3 preseason record.

Nyssa, meanwhile, cruised through its pre-season and first league game behind a high-octane offense and solid defense to post a 4-0 mark.

The math said Nyssa held the advantage, but someone forgot to clue in the Vikings.

Instead, Vale put together a nearly flawless effort . . .
