The Golden Bears took the opening kickoff back for a touchdown and while Lakeside rallied to tie the game at 7-7, the Vikings played from behind for much of the game. First-year coach Hinton will next lead the Vikings on the field in a Sept. 6 game versus Dunwoody at Adams Stadium.
Another first year coach, Mark Adams of Druid Hills High School, will lead the Red Devils into their season opener on Aug. 30 at Clarkston, which fell 40-7 to Aradia Mountain on Friday night.
Also next week, the St. Pius Golden Lions, who last fall advanced to their first state championship game since 1968 before falling 10-3 to Buford in the title contest, opens its 2013 campaign versus visiting Westminster.
