The Avery High football team won it's third consecutive game Friday night in Marion.

But it was close-knit affair aS the Vikings (3-1) staved off a late rally by Mcdowell to win the game, 28-21. The Titans, who haven't won a game since 2008, have lost 30 consecutive games. Alex Villanueva, who was sacked twice, threw for 224 yards and a pair of touchdown. He also ran for 48 yards.
Spencer Blackburn paced the running game with 83 yards; and Thomas Moore was Avery's leading receiver as he caught five passes for 138 yards and a score. Trailing 14-7 with 11:55 to play in the first half, the Vikings closed out the second quarter with 21 unanswered points for a 28-14 halftime lead.
A five-yard run by Moore with 9:11 to play in the first half tied the game at 14. That scoring run capped off an eight-play, 83 yard drive. The Vikikngs followed that up with a ten-play, 73-yard drive as Michael Arnett scampered in from 11-yards out to give the Vikings a 21-14 lead with 4:56 left in the first half. And Villanueva capped off the rally as he hooked up with Austin Robbie on a 30-yard scoring toss with 1:39 left in the first half for a 14-point lead at the intermission.
The Titans (0-4) scored with 6:40 left to play in the game; Grant Robinson scored on a six-yard run, but the Vikings hung to win the game. The Vikings finished with 398 yards offensively, including 174 on the ground; the Titans had 383 offensive yards and 223 yards on the ground.
