GOODING, Id – Big plays doomed the Vikings against Idaho 3A powerhouse Gooding Friday night. 

The Senators used an interception return for a touchdown and a big run by quarterback Shane Jennings in the first half to help lead the way to a 41-14 non-league victory over Vale. 

“We actually played really well. We played much, much better defensively,” said Vale coach Jeff Aldred.

The Vikings staked out an early, 6-0 lead going into the second quarter and the game was knotted 6-6 when quarterback Colton Kesey was picked off by Jennings who ran it back for a touchdown and a 12-6 lead for the Senators.
