Stanton Booster Club held a tailgate supper and grilled ribeye steak sandwiches and hamburgers before the game. The High School Cheerleaders sold balloons to release on the 1st touchdown of the game. While the concession stands were booth in full gear.
The Stanton Vikings met with the Essex Trojans on the field for a 7:00 kickoff. While they gave us much excitement for the evening, the final result was Stanton 72 - Essex 8. This was the first Homecoming victory for this year's Seniors and what a Victory it was.
