Junior Green 42 Highland 0

This is becoming old hat for the Burbank Vikings Junior Green, who for the second consecutive regular season went undefeated after Saturday’s 42-0 blitz of the Highland Bulldogs, and now prepare for the playoffs. The Junior Green have won 22 in a row.

The Vikings (8-0) pulled ahead 12-0 after the first quarter, and then scored 22 points in the second quarter.

Burbank’s assault commenced when quarterback Isaac Cordova located running back Dante Coxsom with a 29-yard pass down the right sideline that made it 6-0.

The Vikings took charge 12-0 after Cordova, who completed all three passes attempts for 88 yards, hit Sebastian Leal with a 54-yard bomb after runs by Kade Lewis (38 yards on six carries) and Chandler Auguste.

Fullback Loyal Terry rambled 78 yards for a touchdown that made it 18-0, and Leal’s two-point attempt gave the Vikings a 20-0 cushion.

The lead became 26-0 when Lewis darted into the end zone from 17 yards out, while safety Bryce Young intercepted a pass and ran it back 19 yards for a touchdown that pushed the Vikings’ lead to 32-0. Cordova, who finished with 42 yards rushing on eight carries, added the two-pointer that made it 34-0.

Max Cotton’s 52-yard pick for a score and Cordova’s 16-yard run were called back because of penalties, but Auguste’s 16-yard stroll counted as the Vikings bolted ahead 40-0. Cordova’s two-pointer put the icing on the cake.

The Vikings’ defense allowed the Bulldogs minus-12 yards on the ground, and was paced by defensive tackle Malachi Meeks who contributed seven tackles (three solo) and one-and-a-half sacks, while defensive end Michael Sorokin had five tackles (three solo) and two-and-a-half sacks.

Midget Green 44 Lancaster 6

The Burbank Vikings Midget Green followed suit as they also closed the regular season without a loss after belting the Lancaster Jets, 44-6.

The Vikings, who will be the No. 1 seed in the playoffs and will have the home field as long as they win, opened the scoring with a 50-yard drive that was capped off when quarterback Tobi Baklayan located the end zone from seven yards out and 8:09 left in the opening quarter. Baklayan’s two-point pass to Niko Candido made it 8-0. The march also included a 43-yard toss from Baklayan to Anthony Spearman.

The Vikings (8-0) drove 54 yards and Spearman scored on a four-yard burst with 4:18 showing in the same quarter that made it 14-8. Baklayan had a 29-yard scamper and Baklayan’s pass to Jime De Young on the two-point try made it 16-8.

Candido recovered the kickoff, but Baklayan was later picked off. The Jets took over at their 15-yard line, and Max Birch tackled the running back for a nine-yard loss. On fourth down Tadashi Butler chased and tackled the punter.

De Young’s three-yard run off tackle with 11:47 left in the second quarter provided the Vikings with a 22-6 lead.

Lancaster’s next drive was halted when Zion Chavez, Calvin Laughlin and Spearman, who ripped the football from the Jets’ quarterback, all handed out jarring tackles.

Cooper Meek’s 26-yard field goal was wide left, but Chavez blocked a punt and returned the ball 22 yards for a score that made it 28-6 and 5:25 left before the half. Baklayan’s two-point run gave the Vikings a 30-6 lead.

After stopping the Jets, Burbank took over at the Lancaster 44-yard line. Soon Max Cotton’s 16-yard run and Baklayan’s 25-yard scoring dash propelled the Vikings ahead 36-6 with 1:40 left in the second quarter. Baklayan converted the two-pointer to make it 38-6.

The Vikings’ final touchdown was a thing of beauty as they marched 82 yards on 17 plays as Spearman dented the end zone from four yards out.

The Burbank Vikings Midget Green will next play the Simi Valley Patriots, who are 4-4 and have won four straight games.

Bantam White 24 Canyon 14

The Burbank Vikings Bantam White placed a capper on the regular season with a 24-14 triumph over the Canyon Outlaws, and also awaits the postseason.

It didn’t take long before the Vikings (5-3) were on the board three plays into their opening drive when fullback Maurice Johnson scored from 15 yards out.

Before the tally Vikings quarterback Jordan White accounted for 40 yards rushing, and his two-point attempt was successful as Burbank led, 8-0.

The Outlaws matched the Vikings as they drove downfield and scored and also added the two-point try that knotted it at 8-8.

With 1:30 left before the intermission, spectacular blocks from guard Atticus Coots, tackle Shant Hovsepian, center Isaiah Martinez and tackle Frankie Cervantes all helped lead Johnson into the end zone after an option pitch from White that made it 14-8. White’s run for the two-point conversion was successful and the lead became 16-8 at the half.

The Vikings’ defense was stingy as they picked off three passes in the third quarter and were turned in by cornerback Luke Rogers (who finished with three interceptions), cornerback Nick Schlander and linebacker Johnson.

Canyon was able to get into the end zone to make it 16-14, but was turned back on the two-point try as defensive tackle Richie Flores, linebacker Mario Rodriguez and linebacker Rudy Perez converged on the tackle.

The Vikings added a final touchdown as Johnson dragged defenders into the end zone. Johnson was assisted by runs from White, and also picked up a well-timed block from wide receiver Lorenzo Leal. White’s two-point try made it a 10-point spread.

Junior Black 38 Santa Clarita 25

Falling behind proved no big deal for the Burbank Vikings Junior Black, who rallied for a 38-25 win over the Santa Clarita Blackhawks at Burbank High.

The Vikings (3-4) trailed 13-0 and even though they suited only 15 players, came alive as wingback Josh Johnson, who replaced the injured Malik Jackson, ran for 100 yards and scored three touchdowns. Johnson caught 50 yards worth of passes and tallied a score.

Receivers Julian Brady and Diego Garcia filled in admirably and both snared several passes, and fullback Jake Barraza scored on a five-yard run.

Quarterback Chase Tachau had 75 yards through the air with a touchdown and added 12 yards on the ground.

The Vikings’ defense allowed 19 points in the opening half, but surrendered only one score in the second half.

Linebacker Johnson led the way with 10 tackles and an interception, while cornerback Brady and linebackers Barraza and Kayode Agbalaya, along with linemen Renny Vasquez and Matty Porras all played stellar for the Vikings who conclude the regular season against the Canyon Country Outlaws Gold at Canyon High.

Midget Green 47 Santa Clarita 6

The effort was efficient and highly-productive from the opening kickoff as the Burbank Vikings Midget Green clinched the PYFL Central East Championship after Saturday’s 47-6 smashing of the Santa Clarita Apaches.

On the game’s first play quarterback Bryce Whitaker found wide receiver Niko Candido, who then tossed the ball to wide receiver Cooper Meek as the double-pass went for 48 yards and a touchdown. Whitaker drilled Candido on an out pattern for the two-point conversion and an 8-0 lead.

The Vikings (7-0) jumped ahead 14-0 when Tobi Baklayan brought back a punt 50 yards for a score, and it swelled to 16-0 when Whitaker and Meek combined on the two-point try.

Candido’s interception and 38-yard run for a touchdown made it 22-0, and Whitaker’s toss to Meek on the two-pointer gave the Vikings a 24-0 edge.

When Meek and linebacker Jime De Young sacked the Santa Clarita signal-caller who fumbled, defensive tackle Tadashi Butler pounced on the ball which led to running back Anthony Spearman’s 33-yard scoring gallop. Meek’s point after kick made it 31-0.

DeYoung recovered the kickoff which was fumbled, and after successful runs from Spearman and tailback Max Birch, Whitaker’s one-yard blast afforded the Vikings a 37-0 cushion. Spearman added the two-pointer as the lead ballooned to 39-0.

For good measure safety Jalen Clark picked off Santa Clarita’s quarterback and carried the ball 15 yards to the Apache 38-yard line.

From there Spearman and Birch had a few solid runs before running back Dennis Flowers carried the ball 25 yards into the end zone for a 45-0 lead. Spearman’s two-pointer put the final touches on a one-sided game.

The Vikings will host the Lancaster Jets at Burbank High in the regular-season finale on Saturday, and hope to clinch the No. 1 seed in the playoffs.

Pee Wee Black 24 West Valley 6

Quarterback Dahnte Russell scored two touchdowns in the second quarter that carried the undefeated Burbank Vikings Pee Wee Black to a 24-6 triumph over the West Valley Ravens at El Camino High.

The Ravens forged a 6-0 lead after the first quarter, but Russell struck in the second stanza on blocks from A.J. Vargas and Joe Kazarian. Jonas Baklayan and Diego Reynaldo each added a two-point conversion that made it 16-0 at the half.

One of Russell’s scores came after place kicker Diego Hurtado booted the ball deep into Ravens’ territory which Baklayan forced a fumble.

Vargas scored on a seven-yard scamper in the third quarter for the Vikings (7-0), while Jake Rosen chimed in with the two-point try that made it an 18-point spread.

Michael Martin took over at quarterback in the fourth quarter and gained 35 yards on seven carries with help from blockers Diego Maya, Brandon Campbell, Devin Campbell, Jake Niems, Chris Appel and Logan Rice.

The Vikings’ defensive sparkled brightly along the front line as linemen Anthony Torobyan, Vargas, Reynaldo, Lucas Ruiz, Nathan Chhina and Anthony Diaz, linebackers Kazarian, Cristian Elizalde and Rosen, and cornerbacks Russell and Baklayan all played with passion and zeal.

The Pee Wee Black will conclude the regular season with a contest against the Santa Clarita Warriors at Burbank High at 10:15 a.m.

Junior Green 50 Canyon 0

Reaching the half-century mark in points is mighty impressive, and that’s what the Burbank Vikings Junior Green did against Canyon Green on Saturday. Junior Green is now 7-0.

Using a potent ground attack that churned out 176 yards, the Junior Green laid down a 50-0 pasting and the scoring became an avalanche.

It started when running back Kade Lewis (40 yards on five carries) took a pitch from quarterback Isaac Cordova who found pay dirt after a 29-yard run. Cordova’s two-point conversion made it 8-0.

After two splendid runs by tailback Chandler Auguste, Cordova hit wide receiver Michael Sorokin with an 11-yard toss. Lewis added the two-point attempt for a 16-0 lead.

The Vikings’ lead swelled to 22-0 after Auguste picked off Canyon’s field general and brought the ball back nine yards. Auguste’s two-pointer made it 24-0.

Running back Maximus Mota took an inside handoff and rambled 24 yards that made it 30-0, and when tailback Max Cotton (38 yards on two rushes) ran 34 yards it became 36-0.

Running back Mike Lopez’s 34-yard blast up the middle pushed the Vikings’ advantage to 42-0, and a well-timed tip-drill between linebacker Cordova and safety Lopez saw the latter score the game’s final touchdown. Diego Santillan converted the two-pointer.

Canyon was held to minus 24 total net yards, and linebacker/defensive end Jake Moore had eight tackles including four solo.

Bantam White 34 Oxnard 16

Meanwhile defense played a huge role in the Burbank Vikings Bantam White’s 34-16 triumph over the Oxnard Panthers.

On the Vikings’ opening series the drive stalled at the Oxnard four-yard line, but the Panthers gave the ball back when defensive tackle Paden White forced a fumble which defensive back Jordan White carried into the end zone for a 6-0 lead.

The Panthers scored a touchdown and two-point conversion that gave them an 8-6 lead, however the Vikings (4-2) put together a drive in which quarterback Jordan White scored behind blocks from center Isaiah Martinez and tackle Frankie Cervantes for a 12-8 halftime edge.

Oxnard advanced to the Vikings’ two-yard line before the intermission, only to see linebacker Mario Rodriguez figure in key tackles that prevented the Panthers from scoring.

Fullback Maurice Johnson scored in the third quarter, while running back Nick Schlander added a 20-yard burst and running back Lorenzo Leal had a 15-yarder on the march.

Jordan White intercepted Oxnard’s signal-caller, and three plays later Jordan White found Johnson with a 30-yard hitch pass that made it 26-8.

Oxnard trimmed the lead to 26-16 with a touchdown and a two-pointer, but the Vikings countered with a touchdown of their own after offensive linemen Atticus Coots, Shant Hovsepian and Josh Lopez opened a hole for Johnson who tallied his third touchdown.

The Panthers again marched into Vikings’ territory, but linebackers Rudy Perez and Rodriguez along with Paden White stopped the drive.

Bantam Black 26 Newbury Park 6

In a contest played October 5, the Burbank Vikings Bantam Black scored on their opening series and never looked back as they downed the Newbury Park Steelers, 26-6.

The scoring parade began when quarterback Russell Diep (55 yards on six rushes) scrambled into the end zone from 17 yards out that made it 6-0.

On the kickoff Hunter Rice (five tackles) and Tyler Cantrell (two tackles) forced a fumble which Cantrell recovered. This led to Jarren Flowers scoring on a 35-yard sprint as the Vikings (2-3) settled into a 12-0 lead.

Newbury Park cut the Vikings’ lead in half with a touchdown in the second quarter, but that was the extent of its scoring.

Jack Sapyta, Nicolas Navarro and Kuba Raymond all chipped in with four tackles for a defense that entered the contest having allowed 32 points. Shawn Wilson (40 yards on 10 carries) led the team with six tackles and two sacks.

The Steelers came close to scoring a second touchdown just before the half, but the Vikings held off Newbury Park with a goal-line stand that preserved a 12-6 lead.

Flowers (89 yards on 15 rushes) scored to make it 18-6 in the third quarter, and Diep (two of four pass attempts for 48 yards) scored on a 15-yard keeper out of the shotgun formation that made it 24-6. Diep’s two-point pass to Marcus Martin gave the Vikings a 20-point lead.

Junior Green 49 Agoura 0

In what amounted to a glorified scrimmage, the Burbank Vikings Junior Green toyed with the Agoura Chargers and walked away 49-0 winners on Saturday. It marked the 20th consecutive win for this talented group of young boys who began the streak last season as Midget Green and won the Super Bowl in the process.

The Vikings (6-0) held the Chargers to 44 total net yards, and were led defensively by Max Kushner, who had three solo tackles (all for losses) and finished with six tackles, while Michael Sorokin added five tackles and  returned a fumble for a touchdown.

The scoring began when quarterback Bryce Young (five of seven for 135 yards) spotted wide receiver Sorokin with a 79-yard rocket as the Vikings led 6-0. Tailback Dante Coxsom’s two-point run made it 8-0.

On fourth and four Young’s 24-yard scramble ended up in the end zone which gave the Vikings a 14-0 lead. Young’s screen pass to Coxsom padded the advantage to 16-0 and capped the opening quarter.

The Vikings led 22-0 at the intermission. Young’s 14-yard slant pass to wide receiver Isaac Cordova set up Young’s 22-yard toss to Cordova that accounted for the final touchdown of the first half.

Maxwell Cotton jarred the football loose from an Agoura running back, and Sorokin returned the sphere 20 yards for a score that made it 28-0. Manny Pimentel’s extra point gave the Vikings a 29-0 lead.

Reserve quarterback Franco Alonso drove the Vikings downfield and the march concluded when running back Chandler Auguste (59 yards on 10 carries) scored from five yards out.

Cotton had runs of seven and 24 yards and then added a four-yard dive that closed out the third quarter to make it 43-0.

Jake Moore pushed a Chargers’ offensive lineman into the punter which counted as a blocked kick and the play gave the Vikings possession at the Agoura 17-yard line.

From there Auguste and Cordova each had runs that advanced the ball to the one-yard line, and center Adrian Aguirre, who was moved into the quarterback position, scored the final points.

Simi Valley 34 Junior Black 22

The Burbank Vikings Junior Black suffered a 34-22 setback to the Simi Valley Patriots.

Simi Valley intercepted quarterback Chase Tachau’s “Hail Mary” toss on the game’s final play which was returned for a score, and 50 seconds earlier the Patriots also located the end zone.

The Vikings were able to move the ball effectively in the opening half, but fatigue, 90 degree temperatures and only 16 players suiting up all led to a rough second half.

Tailback Jackson accounted for 85 yards and a touchdown in the opening half, while wingback Joshua Johnson totaled 85 yards on the ground with a score.

The Vikings’ defense was paced by Kayode Agbalaya and Jake Barraza, who limited the bigger Simi Valley running backs to less than 50 yards.

The Vikings own a 2-3 record and look to get back into the winning column when they face the Santa Clarita Warriors on Saturday at Burbank High.

Senior Black 30 Thousand Oaks 6

Darnell Williams, #28, was a run-away train every time he had the ball. He also made great tackles while on defense too.

Junior Green 34 North Oxnard 20

Like a well-oiled machine the Burbank Vikings Junior Green took care of business and handed North Oxnard a 34-20 setback.

The Vikings (5-0) led 16-0 after the first quarter and the scoring began when Sebastian Leal crossed the goal line.

The tally was made possible when quarterback Bryce Young (five for eight and 85 yards) on fourth and 21, tagged running back Dante Coxsom with a 24-yard pass. Coxsom also added a 48-yard run on the drive.

Young’s two-pointer made it 8-0.

Young later hit slot receiver Chandler Auguste with a 20-yard throw that put the Vikings in front 14-0, and Loyal Terry’s run on the two-point try boosted the lead to 16-0.

Leal’s nine-yard romp made it 22-0 and was aided by Auguste’s 15-yard dash and Isaac Cordova’s brilliant 22-yard catch.

When Coxsom, who finished with 82 yards on six carries, grabbed a short screen pass and sprinted 20 yards while breaking at least seven tackles, the Vikings pulled in front, 28-0.

The Vikings led 34-0 at the end of the third quarter when third-string field general Franco Alonso directed an 18-play drive that ended when Alonso (61 yards on 11 carries) danced into the end zone from 20 yards out.

Alonso had an interception that he returned 30 yards, and Cordova paced the Vikings with six tackles.

Midget Green 34 North Oxnard 26 (OT)

It took overtime before the Burbank Vikings Midget Green finally outlasted North Oxnard Red, 34-26, on Saturday.

The Vikings (5-0) had the ball first and began the extra session at the 10-yard line. Jime De Young blasted his way up the middle and scored while Tobi Baklayan added the extra point. Center Larry Franco, Anthony Spearman, Tadashi Butler and guard Robert Maliwanag all helped the surge.

Now it was North Oxnard Red’s turn, but it would end when cornerback Dennis Flowers intercepted a pass at the three-yard line on third down.

The scoring barrage began when Butler blocked a punt and the Vikings taking control at the two-yard line.

Baklayan found an opening in the middle and scored, and Baklayan’s two-point pass to Niko Candido made it 8-0.

Baklayan then picked off a pass and returned the ball 17 yards to the North Oxnard Red 37-yard line where the Vikings set up shop.

Six plays later Baklayan scored on a bootleg with assistance from Maliwanag who delivered a crushing block.

The Vikings made it 20-0 later in the second quarter when Baklayan located the end zone on a 30-yard sweep around left end.

North Oxnard Red’s drive stalled at the Vikings’ 27-yard line, and quarterback Bryce Whitaker led an 11-play, 73-yard march that De Young capped off with a three-yard burst off tackle that made it 26-0. De Young collected terrific blocks from running back Mason Cotton and Spearman.

Pee Wee Black 40 Moorpark 12

A steamroller named the Burbank Vikings Pee Wee Black continued to crush everything in the way including the Moorpark Saints, 40-12.

The Vikings (5-0) scored 22 points in the opening half, and slowed down somewhat tallying only 18 points in the second half.

A.J. Vargas started the ball rolling with a 25-yard dash that came after Dahnte Russell’s 17-yard pass to Jonas Baklayan for a 6-0 lead. When Donovan Castellanos added the two-point conversion the Vikings moved ahead 8-0.

Russell, who passed for 87 yards, picked off the Saints’ quarterback early in the second quarter and brought the football back 45 yards for a touchdown.

Joe Kazarian then punched it in from a yard out and the drive also saw key runs from Russell (93 yards rushing) and Baklayan (74 rushing yards and 87 receiving yards).

The undefeated Vikings pulled in front 34-6 after three quarters and added a 53-yard scoring run from Baklayan, while Russell and Vargas (78 yards on seven carries) also found the end zone.

The Moorpark Saints were able to garner 100 total net yards as Anthony Diaz, Jake Rosen, Anthony Torabyan, Vargas and Kazarian all tackled well.

Next week the Vikings Pee Wee Black have a bye, but will be in action the following Saturday in a game against the Canyon Outlaws Green at Canyon High beginning at 10:15 a.m.

Pee Wee Black 34 North Oxnard 8

You know a team means business when instead of kicking off and playing defense, an onside kick is attempted.

All of this was merely a prelude to the Burbank Vikings Pee Wee Black’s shredding of the North Oxnard Warriors Red, 34-8, on Saturday at Oxnard High. The Pee Wee’s are now 4-0.

The 18-point first-quarter blitz began with Joe Kazarian pouncing on the football to begin the contest which led to Jonas Baklayan scoring from four yards out and a 6-0 lead.

Kazarian then swallowed up a bad snap which set in motion quarterback Dahnte Russell’s 18-yard keeper that made it 12-0. Russell wasn’t done as he found Baklayan with a 44-yard toss for an 18-0 lead.

North Oxnard finally broke the streak with a touchdown and a two-point conversion in the third quarter, but the Vikings rebounded with scoring runs from Baklayan and Russell in the final stanza.

Ricky Garcia and Jake Rosen were instrumental throughout the game, but especially in the fourth quarter as each made several open-field tackles for the Vikings, who will host the Moorpark Saints at Burbank High with a 9 a.m. kickoff.

Junior Green 42 Santa Clarita 0

Getting off to quick starts is becoming a Burbank Vikings Junior Green staple as they drilled the Santa Clarita Warriors, 42-0.

In four wins the Vikings (4-0) have tallied exactly 42 points, and have posted three shutouts which speak to their stout defense.

The Vikings’ offense isn’t too shabby as it bolted to a 16-0 lead after the first quarter when free safety Bryce Young intercepted a pass and ran 61 yards for the touchdown and a 6-0 advantage. Sebastian Leal’s two-point run pushed the lead to 8-0.

The Vikings’ second score of the quarter was Chandler Auguste’s 16-yard gallop, and was made possible after Leal’s 15-yard burst on a pitch. Loyal Terry’s two-pointer made it 16-0.

A 20-point second quarter put the contest out of reach for the over-matched Warriors. The scoring began when quarterback Issac Cordova (three completions for 80 yards) hit tight end Mike Lopez with a 34-yard bullet to make it 22-0. Cordova’s 30-yard bomb to wide receiver Kade Lewis made it 28-0, and was set up by Cordova’s 20-yard rocket to Leal (21 yards on four rushes).

Auguste (36 yards on five carries) also had an eight-run waltz that made it 34-0, Auguste’s two-pointer gave the Vikings a 36-0 cushion, and Young’s five-yard keeper was the game’s final points.

The Warriors found rough sledding and managed nine yards in total offense as Max Kushner (six tackles) had one solo sack, and Kushner combined with Mike Sorokin (eight tackles) on three more sacks.

Bantam White 26 Santa Clarita 0

The Burbank Vikings Bantam White moved past the Santa Clarita Indians, 26-0, as running back Paden White’s 35-yard run was followed by fullback Maurice Johnson’s initial score that made it 6-0. Quarterback Jordan White’s two-point pass extended the margin to 8-0.

Atticus Coots recovered a fumble and early in the second quarter Jordan White scored on a 25-yard romp that was secured by blocks from running back Lorenzo Leal, tackle Shant Hovsepian and guard Coots.

With the clock showing less than a minute left before the intermission, Jordan White’s 65-yard dash made it 20-0 for the Vikings (3-1).

Key gains on the ground in the third quarter by running back Nick Schlander and Johnson paved the way for Jordan White’s 10-yard scamper to make it 26-0.

Linebacker Rudy Perez had two interceptions, tackle Joshua Del-Cid and linebacker Mario Rodriguez each had important tackles late in the contest, and kicker Shane Mullins finished with more than 100 yards in punts.

Junior Green 42 West Valley 0

Fast and furious could have been the theme song as the Burbank Vikings Junior Green lambasted the West Valley Rebels, 42-0, on Saturday. It marked the 17th consecutive victory for the defending Super Bowl Champions.

The romp began when running back Loyal Terry (35 yards on two carries) scored on a 37-yard counter that made it 6-0, and was set up after running back Chandler Auguste’s 13-yard sweep. Auguste finished with 46 yards on three rushes.

It swelled to 12-0 when quarterback Bryce Young found running back Dante Coxsom with an 80-yard screen pass that featured Manny Pimentel’s block downfield.

Burbank’s 24-point second quarter explosion saw Coxsom (58 yards on four carries) score on a 44-yard blast for an 18-0 advantage, and 20-0 after Coxsom’s two-point run.

Auguste’s first touchdown as a Viking was a 32-yard trap as the lead became 26-0. Sebastian Leal’s 14-yard run helped the drive, and Leal’s two-pointer made it 28-0.

Crucial runs up the middle by Trystan Daggs and Maxwell Cotton set up Young’s five-yard quarterback sneak for a 34-0 edge. Daggs converted the two-point attempt to make it 36-0, and Daggs later added a 10-yard run that made it 42-0 in the fourth quarter.

The Vikings (3-0) were stingy on defense holding the Rebels to 32 total net yards, while Jake Moore batted a ball into the air which Young intercepted, and Cotton recovered a fumble.

Midget Green 36 West Valley 24

Sixty points filled the scoreboard when the Burbank Vikings Midget Green faced the West Valley Rebels, and the scoring commenced early for the Vikings who claimed a 36-24 decision.

On the opening play quarterback Tobi Baklayan hit wide receiver Cooper Meek over the middle with a 35-yard scoring toss, and early in the second quarter the Vikings forged a 12-0 lead when Baklayan drilled Meek with a 50-yard pass.

The Rebels had the ball deep inside their territory when Tadashi Butler was about to tackle the running back in the end zone for a safety.

But he attempted to throw the ball which Kenji Butler and Ali Maaz each grabbed for an interception and touchdown that made it 18-0.

The Vikings (3-0) pulled in front 24-6 at the start of the third quarter when Baklayan located wide receiver J.J. Clark for a 20-yard touchdown.

Baklayan led the Vikings on a nine-play, 82-yard march that was capped off when he drilled Clark with a 13-yard pass and a 30-12 lead.

Bryce Whitaker drove the Vikings on a 57-yard, five-play excursion and found Clark with a 13-yard toss that made it an 18-point spread.

Pee Wee Black 16 Lancaster 14

Two-point conversions can be exciting, and it enabled the Burbank Vikings Pee Wee Black to edge the Lancaster Jets, 16-14.

With the score knotted at 14-14 after Jonas Baklayan scored on a 25-yard burst down the sideline early in the fourth quarter, halfback A. J. Vargas’ two-point try behind the blocking of Lorenzo Resendez, Josh Idleburg and Anthony Torabyan provided the winning points.

The Jets led 6-0 after one quarter, but the Vikings (3-0) responded with running back Dahnte Russell’s 30-yard sweep and four seconds left before the half.

Diego Reynaldo’s runs up the middle aided the drive, and Baklayan’s two-point conversion made it 8-6.

Lancaster began the second half with a scoring drive and converted the two-pointer for a 14-8 lead, only to see the Vikings tally the next eight points, and Russell recovering the onside kick by Burbank which took time off the clock.

The Vikings’ defense surrendered nine yards over the final 10 minutes as nose tackle Anthony Diaz, defensive ends Vargas and Torabyan, linebackers Jake Rosen, Joe Kazarian and Baklayan all made important tackles, while cornerbacks Ricky Garcia and Jacob Ferrat, along with safety Russell prevented any short and long gainers.

Junior Black 42 Santa Clarita 24

Meanwhile the Burbank Vikings Junior Black rocked the Santa Clarita Aztecs, 42-24 at Castaic Middle School behind running back Malik Jackson’s 190 yards that included a 90-yard dash and two touchdowns.

Josh Johnson tallied 175 all-purpose yards and scored three touchdowns, while quarterback Chase Tachau passed for 50 yards and had a pair of touchdowns. One of Tachau’s scoring tosses went to wide receiver Tyrae Ross.

Matty Parras had numerous tackles and one sack to pace the Vikings (2-1) who will next play the Valley Bengals at Burbank High on Saturday with a 7:15 p.m. kickoff.

Bantam White 26 Santa Clarita 22

It took a strong effort from the offense and defense in order for the Burbank Vikings Bantam White to knock off the Santa Clarita Apaches, 26-22.

The Apaches scored on their initial possession, but the Vikings (2-1) received an 80-yard scoring jaunt from quarterback Jordan White.

After defensive hits from linebacker Rudy Perez and defensive backs Paden White and Mario Rodriguez, the Vikings were back in business which set in motion running back Nick Schlandler’s 45-yard sprint that gave Burbank a 12-6 cushion at the intermission.

The second half opened with White hitting tight end Maurice Johnson with a 20-yard pass, and he then raced 40 yards for the score while the two-pointer made it 20-6.

Santa Clarita was able to score a pair of touchdowns and a couple of two-pointers, but White raced into the end zone from 20 yards out for the game-winner.

On the drive White connected with tight end Sean Durmick with a 10-yard toss and a 30-yarder to wide receiver Lorenzo Leal.

The Vikings received big defensive tackles late in the game from Perez and defensive back Paden White which prevented the Apaches from moving the ball.

Junior Green 42 Camarillo 18

Who knows when the Burbank Vikings Junior Green’s winning streak will end, but after Saturday’s 42-18 thrashing of the host Camarillo Roadrunners it has reached 16 consecutive games.

Neither team scored in the opening quarter, but it became 12-6 when quarterback Bryce Young, who completed four passes for 98 yards, found the end zone on a two-yard keeper, and wide receiver Sebastian Leal caught a 55-yard pass with less than one minute left before the half.

The Vikings (2-0) pulled in front 26-6 after three quarters when Young hit Dante Coxsom (41 yards on three receptions) on a 36-yard post pattern. Young ran for the two-point conversion. Coxsom (155 yards on 13 carries) wasn’t done as he scored on a 64-yard scamper off tackle.

Fullback Loyal Terry (49 yards on five carries) chipped in with a 31-yard scoring romp that saw him break four tackles. Young then found Isaac Cordova on the two-point attempt.

Terry’s second scoring run was a seven-yarder and was set up by a marvelous catch by Cordova who had two defenders on his neck. Coxsom then added the two-point conversion. This touchdown was made possible by an interception from linebacker Franco Alonso, who had seven tackles including two solo on the day.

Cordova had nine tackles along with two solo tackles and one pass defended, Terry had nine tackles with five solo and two sacks, while Malachi Meeks finished with nine tackles including four solo.

Midget Green 35 Santa Clarita 6

Despite extremely warm weather that reached more than 100 degrees, the Burbank Vikings Midget Green blasted the Santa Clarita Redskins, 35-6.

The scoring began early when quarterback Tobi Baklayan connected with wide receiver Cooper Meek on a 46-yard post route. Baklayan then spotted Niko Candido on the two-point conversion for an 8-0 lead.

With less than a minute remaining before halftime, quarterback Bryce Whitaker hit wide receiver Jalen Clark over the middle for a 20-yard gain, and on the following play Whitaker teamed with Clark on a five-yard scoring play.

When Whitaker drilled Meek on a slant for the two-point attempt the Vikings bolted out to a 16-0 advantage.

On the kickoff, the rival Redskins couldn’t get past their 20-yard line, which gave the Vikings excellent field position, but only 14 seconds showing on the clock.

No problem as Baklayan scrambled for an 18-yard pickup, and then kept the ball for a two-yard run and a touchdown. Meek’s extra point kick was successful as the Vikings extended their advantage to 23-0.

On the second half’s opening possession, the Vikings (2-0) capped the drive with a 10-yard scoring pass from Baklayan to Candido, who had three defenders draped all over him.

The Vikings’ scoring barrage ended with Clark’s 73-yard interception return for a touchdown that made it 35-0, before the Redskins added a late score.

Valley West 31 Junior Black 6

Under similar weather conditions that approached 106 degrees, the Burbank Vikings Junior Black dropped a 31-6 decision to the Valley West Ravens.

Bigger and taller, the Ravens tallied 25 first-half points, while holding the Vikings scoreless, but fullback Jake Barraza managed 50 yards on the ground and scored their lone touchdown.

After a strong effort against the Ravens, running back Malik Jackson now has more than 200 yards on the ground this season, while wingback Josh Johnson totaled 40 rushing yards, despite playing with an injured ankle.

The Burbank Vikings Junior Black (1-1) will next play the Santa Clarita Aztecs at Castaic Middle School on Saturday with a 12:15 p.m. kickoff.

Pee Wee Black 22 West Valley 8

In a relatively taut match, the Burbank Vikings Pee Wee Black brushed past the West Valley Rebels, 22-8, at Burbank High in a contest that was scoreless after the first quarter, and tied 8-8 at the half.

The Rebels took an 8-0 lead on a 55-yard drive in the second quarter, but the Vikings (2-0) knotted it at 8-8 on a 30-yard scramble from Jonas Baklayan in the same quarter.

On the Vikings’ opening drive of the second half, running back Dahnte Russell, who gained 149 yards on the ground, dented the end zone with an eight-yard burst.

The defense was led by Joe Kazarian, who finished with five tackles, followed by Lucas Ruiz with four tackles, Baklayan with 3.5, and Diego Reynaldo with 2.5.

Center Anthony Torabyan delivered every snap without a hitch, and linemen Josh Idleburg and Lorenzo Resendez each played at a high level.

Fullback Reynaldo also added 60 rushing yards and scored with five minutes left in the fourth quarter behind blocks from A.J. Vargas, Baklayan and Kazarian that made it a 14-point spread.

Lancaster 14 Senior Black 12

Viking Football 2nd wk-2There were more than enough opportunities for the Burbank Vikings Senior Black to knock off Lancaster, but instead they absorbed a 14-12 setback.

The Vikings (1-1) recovered five Lancaster turnovers, and even had the football inside the Lancaster 50-yard line several times, but all of this couldn’t offset scoring runs of 65 and 52 yards.

Darnell Williams and Blake Quinteros led the offensive charge, while Brendan O’Connor, Brady Barrett and Max Weschler played huge on the defensive side of the ball.

Junior Green 42 Ventura Black 0

History was made last year when the Burbank Vikings’ Midget Green squad captured the first-ever Pacific Youth Football League Super Bowl title by a team from Burbank in any division. They finished with a remarkable 12-0 record.

The quest to repeat has begun.

In a rematch of last season’s Super Bowl won by the Midget Green 34-6, once again they had the better of Ventura Black on Saturday at Burbank High. Now a year older, the Midget Green has transitioned into the Junior Green.

This time the score was 42-0, and it featured four touchdowns from Dante Coxsom. On the game’s opening play, quarterback Bryce Young hit Coxsom for a 29-yard gain, and two plays later Coxsom scored on a short run to make it 6-0.

Ventura was forced to punt, and Coxsom returned the kick 83 yards for a score and a 12-0 lead. Quarterback Issac Cordova handed off to running back Franco Alonso on the two-point conversion to make it 14-0.

Linebacker Trystan Daggs recovered Manny Pimentel’s onside kick at the 50-yard line, and three plays later Coxsom bolted for a 49-yard touchdown. Cordova located Alonso in the end zone on the two-point attempt that made it 22-0.

On Ventura’s next possession, defensive end Michael Sorokin and Malachi Meeks each registered sacks, and the lead would swell to 28-0 when Coxsom scored on a 30-yard burst that closed out the first quarter.

Max Cotton’s 36-yard sprint just before the intermission made it 34-0, and Cordova’s draw capped an 11-play, 64-yard march. Sebastian Leal accounted for 34 yards on the drive, and he scored the two-point conversion on a run.

Senior Black 30 Newbury Park 0

Darnell Williams ran for three touchdowns as the host Burbank Vikings Senior Black squad ripped the Newbury Park Steelers, 30-0.

Williams grabbed the opening kickoff and sprinted 98 yards, and then punched it in from two yards out. Running backs Tommy Cantrell, Kevin Hebri and Jorge Gomez controlled the ground attack, and receivers Blake Quinteros and Max Weschler caught passes from signal-caller Maurice Rozo.

Linebackers Gomez and Brady Barrett halted screen passes and short tosses, while defensive back Kole Jenson, Joe Metcalf and Chris Boehm knocked down passes downfield.

Midget Green 29 Ventura Orange 0

The Burbank Vikings Midget Green throttled the Ventura Packers Orange, 29-0, and the scoring began early and often.

The Vikings opened with a 65-yard, seven-play drive that included a 27-yard pass from quarterback Tobi Baklayan to wide receiver Cooper Meek.

The next play saw Baklayan hit Niko Candido with a 17-yard scoring pass. Baklayan ran for the two-point conversion that made it 8-0.

The Vikings stopped the Packers at their 39-yard line, and one play later Anthony Spearman ran a sweep and scored with blocks coming from running back Jimi DeYoung and guard Tadashi Butler. Baklayan made it 16-0 after converting the two-point try.

On the kickoff, Candido forced a fumble which was pounced on by J.J. Clark at the Packers 27. In the second quarter, quarterback Bryce Whitaker rolled out and drilled Candido with a 15-yard toss that made it 22-0.

Ventura marched 65 yards in the third quarter, but was stuffed at the Vikings six-yard line. Meek snared a 25-yard pass, and after Burbank crossed the 50, Whitaker scrambled and lost the football.

The Vikings took over at midfield after allowing Ventura only four yards, and Baklayan took off on a 30-yard dash for a 29-0 lead.

Burbank’s quick and relentless defense limited Ventura to 30 yards at the intermission and 103 yards overall.

Pee Wee Black 45 Highland Gold 14

Dahnte Russell bolted out of the starting gate and raced 70 yards on the opening kickoff for the Burbank Vikings Pee Wee Black against the Highland Bulldogs Gold, but this score was a mere tip of the iceberg as the Vikings pounded the Bulldogs, 45-14, in Palmdale.

Russell later stripped a Highland ball carrier and recovered the football. Russell then delivered a 34-yard burst and received key blocks from Jake Rosen and Jacob Hurtado. Russell capped the drive with a nine-yard quarterback keeper that made it 12-0 and only four minutes having elapsed.

The Bulldogs finally got on the scoreboard, but Jonas Baklayan countered with a 31-yard scoring run that was made possible by clean blocks from A.J. Vargas and Russell.

Baklayan tallied two touchdowns before the intermission, including an interception for a score that made it 33-7.

The Vikings offensive line didn’t allow a sack or a turnover, and the defense forced three first-half miscues, including defensive end Anthony Torabyan recovering a bad snap, and Diego Reynoldo forcing the Highland quarterback into throwing an interception that Baklayan returned for a touchdown.

Anthony Diaz, Jacob Ferrat, Josh Idleberg, Baklayan, Rosen, Russell, and Vargas were especially stout on defense, allowing one Bulldog score in the second half.

The Vikings tallied scoring runs from Ricky Garcia of 12 yards, and Michael Martin of 10 yards in the second half, and the contest concluded with quarterback Reynoldo missing tight end Chris Appel on the extra point.

Junior Black 36 Newbury Park 8

Tailback Malik Jackson ran for 180 yards and three touchdowns as the Burbank Vikings Junior Black routed the Newbury Park Steelers, 36-8.

Two of Jackson’s scoring jaunts covered more than 50 yards, and quarterback Chase Tachau threw for 50 yards and he ran for a score.

Wingback Joshua Johnson chipped in with 75 yards and a touchdown, while Andrew Graves, Jake Barraza, Kyler Michel and Anthony Aragon all paced the defense.

Bantam White 39 Valley West 6

The Burbank Vikings Bantam White crushed the Valley West Ravens, 39-6, at Burbank High with quarterback Jordan White scampering for 119 yards with two touchdowns, passing for 20 yards, and connecting with Maurice Johnson on a two-point conversion.

Running back Lorenzo Leal finished with 100 yards and one score, running back Nick Schlander added 84 yards and one touchdown, running back Paden White had 64 yards and one score, while fullback Johnson bulled his way for 34 yards with a touchdown, and chipped in with two extra-point conversions.

The offensive line was spearheaded by Atticus Coot and Shant Hovsepian, while defensive back Mario Rodriguez led the Vikings in tackles, followed by defensive end Sean Durmick. Linebacker Rudy Perez recovered a fumble late in the game, halting a Ravens drive.
