VALE – Vale quarterback Tanner Steele’s touchdown strike to receiver John Wolfe late in the fourth quarter lifted the Vikings over New Plymouth 12-6 in a nonleague prep football match Friday night at Vale High School.

“We are finding ways to win. It doesn’t always look pretty but, at the end of the day, a win is a win,” said Vale Coach Jeff Aldred.

Steele hit Wolfe as he raced across the middle of the field and the senior fought the last few yards as he was tackled to break into the end zone for the go-ahead score with 4:27 to go.

Steele ended the night 14 . . .
