For the fourth time this year, Vidalia High put more than 35 points on the board.

The Vikings scored 22 of their points in the second quarter.

&uot;It took us a little while to pick up where they doing defensively,&uot; said Vidalia senior tackle Matthew Probst. &uot;But once we got ahold of what they were doing, we got it under control.&uot;

Vidalia finished the game with 348 rushing yards, including 210 by Dariel Mays. &uot;Dariel is an outstanding back,&uot; Probst said. &uot;He can cut and go. All he needs is an inch and he can get through the hole. We know we don’t have to hold our blocks long with him.&uot;

Probst said McCall took a few cheap shots during the contest.

&uot;We would just come back the next play and hit them hard,&uot; he said. &uot;We just had to keep cool heads out there.&uot;

The Vikings also had 127 yards passing.

&uot;We know if we can give Jarrett (Hoffpauir) some time, he’s going to complete his passes,&uot; Probst said. &uot;And we have some great receivers.&uot;

Probst also plays defense. McCall had 177 total yards in offense. The Dragons use the single wing offense.

&uot;That’s something we haven’t seen since junior high,&uot; Probst said. &uot;It’s just a matter of staying in your position and being disciplined. We had to do a lot of shifting down.&uot;

The seventh-ranked Vikings visit No. 6 Loyola next Friday.
