Those two scores came after Ripley fumbled the ball way. The Vikings turned the ball over six times, including four occasions inside SC's 30-yard line.
"We played well,'' said Ripley first-year coach David Tennant, whose team piled 411 yards of offense. "Our defense was flying around hitting and our offense looked really good.
"Four turnovers in the red zone. We shot ourselves in the foot. We're getting better every week. [Our players] have shown what they can do. Now it's time to turn it up a little bit more.''
Grier finished with 290 yards on 18 of 24 passing with four TDs and no interceptions. He added 84 yards on 13 rushes. Crozier also turned 149 yards on eight catches.
Ripley went ahead 13-7 after forcing a fumble and two plays later tailback Jake Martin hit receiver Jakob Harrison on a 58-yard strike on a halfback pass with no left in the first quarter.
Vikings quarterback Trevor Tucker led the way with 154 yards rushing and two scores and added 148 yards through the air but was intercepted three times. Martin netted 67 yards on 14 carries, and Harrison finished with 152 yards on five receptions.Reach Tommy R. Atkinson at Tatkin...@wvgazette.com or call 304-348-4811.
