The wild ride for the Valencia Vikings still has not reached its destination with the Vikings now heading into the CIF State Championship Bowl Games for Division 2A.
The Vikings are coming off a CIF championship victory against Oaks Christian, winning their first CIF championship in school history, but look to continue their dream season for one last ride.
The Vikings will now face the Scripps Ranch Falcons, a San Diego-based high school with only one loss all season long (12-1), on Saturday for a chance to compete in the state finals game that will be hosted on Dec. 11 at Saddleback College. The Falcons are the 58th ranked team in California with the Vikings landing as the 56th ranked team according to MaxPreps.
The Vikings will look to feed off their momentum from the CIF championship game behind their key players in Don Ray Hall, Duhron Goodman, Zamondre Merriweather and Trey Erickson.
