|Vidalia to see first action of year in bout with OCS|
When Hurricane Gustav wiped out the Vidalia Vikings' first game in 2008, Vikings fans had to wait until the Ouachita Christian School Eagles paid a visit to see their first action of the regular season.
For Vikings and their fans, the wait will end Friday when the Eagles come calling. Kickoff is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. The game will be broadcast by KHLL 100.9 FM.
OCS (1-0) is coming off a dominating 51-29 victory over Mangham in which the Eagles put up 45 points in the first half alone.
The game this week is one the Eagles look forward to each year as a rivalry of sorts. Each game the last two seasons has been an entertaining one for the fans and players and coaches, too. Last season, OCS squeaked out a 15-12 win over the Vikings.
"We have had some dog fights with Vidalia," OCS coach Steven Fitzhugh said. "They have some very talented players."
One concern for OCS will be stopping Vidalia's talented running back Kevin Johnson. Tackling the senior runner was a problem for OCS a year ago.
"We have to do a better job of wrapping up on tackles," Fitzhugh said. "(Johnson) is as hard a runner as we will face."
Johnson also plays defense for the Vikings. Fitzhugh knows his team will have to find No.1 wherever he lines up on Friday night.
"He can make plays all over the field," Fitzhugh said.
On offense, OCS has been clicking thus far in the young season. Quarterback Jacob Davis has distributed to players such as Dustin Andrews and Blake Gilkin. With the Eagles putting 51 big ones on the board last week, kicker Taylor Dawson had plenty of extra point opportunities.
