Williams Powers Vikings Past Golden Hawks

The Allentown Central Catholic Vikings defeated the Bethlehem Catholic Golden Hawks on Friday night at the nostalgic J. Birney Crum Stadium. The night started with a bang from the Vikings when Jayden Williams broke a run 56 yards to paydirt to put ACC up 7-0, just 3:25 into the contest. Early in the second, Williams found his way back into the end zone to extend their lead to 14-0. The Vikings defense was stifling in the first half, which led to a 14-3 lead at the break. In the third, ACC ran away with the game with yet another five-yard TD run from Williams, a 53 yard TD on a punt return, and a scoop and score that propelled Central Catholic to a 35-3 margin. 

The Golden Hawks scored a few touchdowns late from Luke Thomas and Rafi Harrington, but the Vikings were way too much to handle. The final score was a 38-17 Central Catholic victory in which the Vikings really dominated a quality Bethlehem Catholic squad. The Golden Hawks finished the season going 4-4, and will look ahead to better fortunes next season. The Vikings are now 6-2 on the year and will face the Tigers of Northwestern Lehigh in the District 11 4A Championship game this Thursday 11/19 at Whitehall High School.
