The Vikings started out strong and scored a touchdown on their opening drive. The Jaguars controlled the game from that point on and kept Whitman scoreless until the fourth quarter, when the game was already out of reach.

Quarterback Matt Clayton and wide receiver Jack McClelland both threw for over 100 yards on the day and wide receiver Carter Hughes hauled in three receptions for 83 yards. Defensive back Owen Roegge led the defense with 13 tackles.

The Vikings go back on the road this Friday to face the Churchill Bulldogs (0–4).
