"So proud of these guys," Amos said after the Vikings completed a taxing stretch of four straight games away from their home field with a hard-fought 27-17 victory over the Skyview Storm of Vancouver, Wash. "Four straight road trips, a couple of them six-plus hours. They kept battling. We beat two really good football teams back to back.

Tonight, we passed well, played as a team and kept another clean sheet, so I am very pleased with tonight’s performance against a Post Falls team that never stopped fighting until the end.”
