The Avery High football team has been pretty generous this season, especially on defense.

 

The Vikings (4-4 overall; 1-3 Western Highland 1A/2A Conference) were giving up an average of 31 points-a-game going into Friday night's match up with Polk County. And despite a 21-17 lead at the intermission, the wheels came off in the second half and Wolverines waltzed away with a 51-31 win at MacDonald Stadium in Newland.
The Wolverines (6-2; 3-1) had 488 yards offensively---246 yards on the ground and 242 yards through the air. They outscored the Vikings 34-10 in the second half. Alex Villanueva had another masterful performance in defeat. The Avery senior ran for 61 yards and was 16-33 passing for 197 yards , four touchdowns and one interception. Hunter Sheilds caught five balls for 78 yards, three of which went for touchdowns.
The loss drops Avery into a two-way tie for sixth place with Madison. The Vikings play at Madison next Friday night. The Vikings have lost three of their last four games.
