Janesville powers past the Vikings


When the football lights shut off Friday night at the Ventura football field, a lot of history went off with them.  For 69 years football teams have played on that field to the cheering of the home crowd and shared in the pride that comes with representing a community that is proud of them.  Records were broken, wins were collected and hundreds of players can say that they were once “Ventura football.”  That history came to an end Friday night, as the Vikings played their last home game ever on that field.

Coach Scott Swenson is a believer.  
    “We believe that the teams that stay the course and continue to work the hardest, will have  good things happen for them,” said Swenson.   “We know sooner or later, all of a sudden, we will start to get the breaks.”
    The Lions began to see some of that hard work pay off last week, as they challenged Iowa Fall-Alden and competed in the very tough Mason City Tournament.
