Joel Klock, who was 3-of-4 passing for 47 yards, kicked a 23-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to round out the scoring for the Vikings (5-1 overall, 4-2 Class A North). Defensively, Weiser and Brett Dlugosz both had nine tackles. GI had a 32-0 lead at the half. For Starpoint (2-4, 2-3), Joe Scibilia threw a pair of touchdown passes.
