another week to get win No. 200.

The Vikings fell to Rayville Saturday night 28-12 on a rain-soaked

field, leaving Faircloth stuck at No. 199.

&uot;It wasn’t much of a game,&uot; Faircloth said. &uot;It

was two teams that didn’t want to win.&uot;

Vidalia also lost its District 3-2A opener, as it fell to 4-2

on the season.

The Vikings host Reuben McCall next Friday at 7 p.m.

Faircloth said his team just got beat Friday night.

But he wasn’t happy that the loss came to a below-average Rayville

team, he said.

&uot;We didn’t tackle, block and we got whipped,&uot; Faircloth

said. &uot;Rayville – they’re not going to make the cover of

Sports Illustrated. We were two touchdowns poorer than they were.&uot;
