For the first time in 11 years, Vernon beat Pope John in a high school football game. The Vikings' 30-24 victory last Saturday, punctuated by big plays like this forced fumble, cemented Vernon's place atop the SCIL standings. The Vikings celebrate Homecoming this week with a 1 p.m. game Saturday against High Point. For more on the opening week of high school football, turn to page 42. (Photo by Eileen Stanbridge)
