Hart (3-4, 0-2) wasn’t able to gain a single yard of offense on the ensuing drive and were forced to punt at the 13-yard line. Seymour lunged, blocked the punt and returned it for a touchdown to make it 15-0. Seymour picked up his second touchdown at the 8:19 mark as the Vikings charged ahead to 21-0 with a PAT from Ty Morrison. Hart wasn’t able to get anything going until 2:31 remained in the first quarter when Zach Johnson connected with Drew Munoz on an 11-yard pass.

“That was just disastrous first three minutes for us and then so we didn’t tell them anything,” said Hart coach Mike Herrington. “We just expect them to come out and play and they played well for the next quarter and a half.” Valencia fumbled on the following kickoff, giving the ball back to the Indians immediately. Hart was unable to capitalize, however, and after a scoreless second quarter, Valencia headed into halftime with a 21-7 lead. Morrison executed a field goal with 9:11 left in the third quarter, which would be the only points of the stanza. Santos opened up the fourth quarter with a 64-yard touchdown run to make the score 31-7, then a 12-yard drive from Valencia paved the way for a Luke Fowble field goal with 4:19 left on the board. Wilson was handed the ball six times on the drive, the most action he’d seen all game. “It’s great to see him back because he’s just a huge playmaker for us,” Seymour said of Wilson. “He’s just a huge energy for us. He pumps up the team, always makes big plays. It’s awesome to watch him play.”
