At the half it was a tie ballgame 14-14 but the second half would see the Vikings capitalize on Packer mistakes, favorable starting field position and also take advantage of a dropped punt by the Packers deep in their own territory. Colquitt quarterback Jaycee Harden finished 19-of-31 for 231 passing yards and one touchdown despite the intense onslaught he faced most of the night from the Lowndes defense. Tyler Walker scored a TD in the first quarter and on the night Lemeke Brockington was good for 80 yards on 6 passes while Daijun Edwards netted a touchdown and 60 yards on 17 carries. Colquitt kicker Jason Gallardo kicked a 41-yard field goal along with his two successful PATs.
With Friday’s win Lowndes completed a perfect regular season giving the Vikings their fifth undefeated regular season in the program’s history.
