REEDLEY - On a night where the Vikings’ defense allowed a season-high of 27 points, the unit made a stop when it mattered most.

When the Vikings were trying to hold onto a late 35-27 fourth quarter lead, Noah Jimenez sealed the 87th Annual Battle of the Fire Extinguisher after returning an interception 60 yards to the end zone. It was a moment that energized the Kingsburg crowd at Reedley High’s Sal Gonzalez Field on Friday.

After its 43-27 victory over the Selma Bears (8-2, 4-1 CSL), Kingsburg completes a perfect 10-0 regular season and outright claims the 2019 Central Sequoia League championship. The Vikings are 10-0 for the first time since 2009 and it’s the program’s second-straight victory in the rivalry series.
