Taylor Jackson rushed for over 250 yards and two touchdowns as the Vikings clinched their third league championship in five seasons with a 28-14 win over Olympic. Quarterback Colton Bower added 125 yards and two scores as North Kitsap’s no-huddle, high-tempo offense helped to wear down the Trojans.
