Vikings grid game moved to Thursday


TARBORO — The Tarboro Vikings Two Rivers Conference game against the Northampton Jaguars has been moved to Thursday at 7 p.m. in Vikings Stadium.

Tarboro coach Jeff Craddock announced the game change Tuesday and said with the chance of rain on Friday, they decided it would be best to move the game up a day.

Tarboro's game will kickoff after the JV Vikings game against North Edgecombe's JV is completed. That game will start at 4 p.m.

Tarboro is 7-2 overall and 3-0 in conference. They are averaging 59 points a game and only allowing 10 points.

Northampton has one loss in the conference, which  came at the hands of Riverside three weeks ago. Northampton is coming off a 42-14 win against North Edgecombe and is tied for second with Riverside.
