West DePere went on the road for their non-conference football game last night. It was a long trip, three hours and forty-five minutes one way.
The game may not have started good, but it ended well.
Taylor Hauser opened the game for the Vikings with a 4-yard TD run in the first quarter, then followed with another 12-yard score in the second.
Here’s the scoreboard recap from Inside Preps.
