Pivotal NFL dual results in one-point Vikings victory.

SANBORN — The Vikings did what they needed to in their quest of league title.

Grand Island pulled out a narrow win over Niagara Wheatfield, 37-36, Wednesday night at Niagara Wheatfield High School in one of the most crucial Niagara Frontier League duals of the season. The Vikings (6-0 NFL) have now set themselves up with a winner-takes-all dual next Wednesday at Niagara Falls for NFL supremacy.

This matchup could not have been closer, with both teams tying at 36 after the final bout at 152 pounds between the Falcons' Ali Assaf and the Vikings' Jake Miller. But due to GI outmatching NW (4-2) with an 8-7 win total in the match, the Vikings were able to take the tiebreaker.
