Valley City State's offense continued to rack up yards and points Saturday night, and the result was another big win. The Vikings defeated Trinity Bible College 66-6 in a night game at Shelly Ellig Field.
Valley City State improves to 3-1 overall. Trinity Bible drops to 1-3. The Vikings now have a week off before their homecoming game, Oct. 5, against Presentation College.
Much like last week, the Vikings jumped on top early and never looked back. Derek Elliott scored on the Vikings first possession, as VCSU led 21-0 after the first quarter.
It was a banner night for Elliott, who tied a school record with five rushing touchdowns, and set a new career record at VCSU with 27 total rushing touchdowns. The senior from Valley City racked up 193 more rushing yards, giving him 737 rushing yards in four games this season.
Isaiah Osorio had a huge night defensively, coming up with 2 1/2 sacks, three tackles for loss, and nine total tackles to lead the Viking defense. Fontayne Fuga racked up 10 tackles, including one for a loss, and Zach McBeain added nine tackles.
Starting quarterback Kurtis Walls finished 11-for-16 for 165 yards and a touchdown to Cedric Chappell. Cameron Avery played quarterback as well, finishing 5-for-5 for 44 yards. He also added 35 rushing yards. Chappell ended with five catches for 105 yards and a touchdown.
The Vikings tallied 537 yards of total offense, compared to just 134 for Trinity Bible.
Up next: VCSU hosts Presentation College at 1 p.m. on Oct. 5.
