Latta Vikings Defeated, But Not Dead as Homecoming Approaches

Latta fell 61-0 to Carvers Bay last Friday, but that doesn’t mean the Vikings didn’t put up a fight.

On offense, Kelvin Ladson had nine carries with 50 yards rushing, and Damon Paige made one carry for 15 yards.

Darius Jones made 46 yards on two kick returns, and Kelvin Ladson had 41 yards, also on two returns.

On defense, Josh Townsend had six tackles. Kelvin Ladson, William Pernell, and Justin McClellan had five tackles each. Chandler Morrell, Darius Jones, Brandon Lane, and Devonte Moultrie each made three.

Although it’s been a disappointing season, the Vikings hope to turn things around this Friday as they celebrate Homecoming.

The Vikings will be hosting the Green Sea-Floyds Trojans on September 24. Last season, Latta ended a 3-game losing streak by defeating Green Sea with a 34-18 win. This season, the Trojans are 2-3, having lost the last three games in a row, the most recent against Lake View.

Both teams will be eager for a win, so be sure to come out and support our local team!
