October 26--  The Treutlen Vikings lost their final home game of the season on Senior Night at Bobby Driggers Stadium to the Jenkins County War Eagles by a score of 29 - 6. Before the game 10 senior football players were recognized along with senior cheerleaders, softball players, and band members.

Jenkins County received the opening kickoff and went old school to start the game, lining up in a straight T formation instead of their usual double wing. Before the Viking defense could fully adjust, the War Eagles scored on a 67 yard run by QB Alroy Parham with 10:02 remaining in the first quarter. The 2 point conversion was good, giving Jenkins County 8 – 0.

After the Viking offense went three and out on their first possession, the War Eagles scored again on a 17 yard run, again by Parham. The two point conversion was successful again, giving the War Eagles a 16 – 0 lead with 5:05 left in the first quarter.

The Treutlen defense began to stiffen and stop the War Eagle ground attack until Jenkins County running back Jujuan Major hit wide receiver JC Williams on an 18 yard touchdown pass with just 4 seconds before the half, extending the lead to 22 – 0.

The War Eagles scored their fourth touchdown on the night with 3:18 left in the third quarter when backup QB Justin Gray hit JC Williams on a 16 yard touchdown pass. The PAT was good and Jenkins County led 29 – 0.

The Vikings removed the goose egg from the scoreboard with 3:54 left in the game when QB PJ Smiley hit receiver Kamron Jordan on a 17 yard touchdown pass. The PAT was blocked, making the final score 29 – 6 in favor of Jenkins County.

The Vikings fall to 3-6 on the season and will travel to Savannah Country Day on Friday to face the Hornets with kickoff set for 7:30 to wrap up their season. Catch the Vikings on Sweet Onion Country 101.7 FM and online at www.southeastgeorgiatoday.com.
