LINDSBORG – As the Smoky Valley football team continues to struggle with their offense, visiting Haven jumped out to an early lead and beat the Vikings 30-0 on Friday.

Haven put two touchdown scores on the board in each of the first two quarters to take the 30-0 advantage into the halftime break. This means that opponents have outscored the Vikings 76-0 in their first two games of the season.

Offensively, while Smoky Valley continued to struggle with a balanced attack they were able to ground out 164 yards rushing 45 attempts but were only able to pick up 70 yards in the air. Quarterback Jake Lucas and Trystan Stambaugh led the Vikings on offense by running for 60 and 53 yards respectively while Kade Blanchat ran for 32 yards and took his only pass reception for 35 yards.

Bon defense, Blanchat led the Vikings in total tackles with 8.5 while Haven Lysell-Stewart recorded 7.5 which included two tackles for a loss of yardage and Austin Sharp was credited with 6.5 tackles.
