Football: Walker 17, Pinson Valley 7



Walker took advantage of the momentum swing and drove 80 yards in eight plays for a touchdown to put the game out of reach. Oliver did most of the damage, breaking free of a 28-yard gain on a key fourth-and-1 play at the Pinson Valley 46-yard line. He followed with a five-yard run and 13-yard touchdown run.

Oliver finished with 137 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. He was at his best with the game on the line, rushing six times for 61 yards in the fourth quarter. Atkins rushed 12 times for 81 yards and also completed 7-of-11 passes for 74 yards.

Indians quarterback Brooks Garrett went to the air quite a bit, but didn’t have much yardage to show for it — 16 completions on 33 attempts for 77 yards.

The Vikings are playing for pride, after they were banned from the post-season for their former coach’s role in the widely-publicized post-game fight with a Cullman coach two weeks ago.

Pinson Valley (2-1, 1-1 region) hosts winless Hayden next week.
