VALE – Keegan Mizuta ran for 175 yards and scored four touchdowns to lead the Vikings past Umatilla 49-7 Friday night in an Eastern Oregon League football game.

Mizuta’s teammate, Jared Fulwyler, chipped in 83 yards on 12 carries and scored a touchdown while quarterback Colton Kesey finished the evening six of 13 for 102 yards passing.

The methodical, workmanlike win for Vale sets up a big game Friday against Burns to settle the league title. 

“We took advantage of some breaks that went our way and we converted on some turnovers they had,” said Vale coach Jeff Aldred.
